The rich product content enabled by Precision Eating is on target with demands of today’s consumers. As reported In the 2018 edition of The Why Behind the Buy from Acosta, Inc.:
- Gen Z (age 12-21): This newest generation are getting brand information from online influencers (like well-known bloggers and other internet personalities).
- Millenials (22-36): Millennial shoppers show a high awareness of product ingredients and sourcing. Over 3X as many Millennial shoppers looked up health and nutrition information.
- Gen X (37-52): Significantly more Gen X shoppers have purchased grocery items containing all-natural ingredients, products that are hormone free, antibiotic free and gluten free.
- Boomer Shoppers (53-71): Health and Wellness is now an imperative: healthful diet, added vitamins and supplements to fill-in nutritional gaps, and OTC/prescription medicines.
The EnterWorks Precision Eating software platform and SaaS offering addresses food and beverage content management from “farm to fork” to “coffee seed to coffee cup” that customers demand. The software and cloud platform can be used by manufacturers, distributors, food service, retailers and restaurants to meet this demand. This comprehensive capability can specify, evaluate, map and filter food and beverage product data based on product attributes, food and beverage attributes, recipe ingredients, nutritional content and additives, allergens, food preparation methods, personal preferences, health and medical requirements and restrictions, diet programs and dietary requirements and restrictions, product locations, product source locations, and consumer locations and communicating results using planogram and augmented reality software on mobile devices.
“Our Precision Eating capability is designed to serve the interests of all constituents in the food demand and supply chain by providing transparency and catering to customer taste preferences and dietary requirements with the precision needed to meet the demands of today’s digitally-enabled customer, said Rick Chavie, CEO of EnterWorks. “It also fits with our B2B2C approach of enabling enterprises and for their business users, including in food preparation for chefs such as Chef Jeff as they create recipes that are responsive to personalized consumer preferences.”
At home, I have three menus: I eat everything but pork, my wife is a vegetarian, and my children are vegans (since the age of eight months have not had dairy or foods from animals). The biggest challenges in meeting such varied demands is not the cooking – it is in finding the nutritional information about the items that go into the recipe,” said Chef Jeff. “My wife invests considerable time in research across multiple sources, including physical product labels. Healthy eating is based on a number of components; when combined together they create a healthy lifestyle. But a platform such as EnterWorks Precision Eating would be a tremendous aid for foodies at home, in grocery stores and at restaurants – and chefs who cater to them.”
