Market Trends: Hispanic Americans and Food
Bigger families. More money spent, on average, on food shopping. A higher propensity for buying fresh meats, produce and dairy products. Greater emphasis on “cooking from scratch.” All these factors - plus an estimated collective budget of $55 billion for food spending - make Hispanic-American families a highly sought-after audience for food and beverage marketers and retailers. Many large, mainstream companies (such as Kraft, PepsiCo. and Sara Lee) have made concerted efforts to attract Hispanic consumers through Latino-influenced product offerings, bilingual packaging and targeted promotional efforts. Retailers, too, have gotten in on the act, dedicating more and more shelf and aisle space to authentic and inspired foods and beverages.
Market Trends: Hispanic Americans and Food, a new report from Packaged Facts, offers marketers and retailers alike an in-depth look at the eating and shopping habits and patterns among Hispanic Americans. It discusses new products and product strategies by “authentic” and “mainstream” marketers, examines population and immigration trends among Hispanic Americans and how they influence food consumption, delves into the attitudes and perceptions Hispanics have regarding food purchases and preparation, and addresses marketing strategies that food marketers and retailers have adopted to attract Hispanics, who are now the largest minority group in the country .
