Consumers in South America know exactly what they want from the food they buy. Our 2018 survey of consumers in Argentina, Brazil and Colombia shows a clear preference for products that are natural, convenient, high in protein and indulgent.
Using those insights and our years of experience with providing answers to leading dairy companies, we have developed a series of solutions to make products healthier, more delicious and with the protein content that South American consumers look for.
Researching South America
Our survey included 4,000 men and women, all aged between 18 and 49 and living in Argentina, Brazil and Colombia.
When asked about protein in particular, 80% of respondents said they know protein is necessary, 46% said they prefer to obtain it from dairy products, and 61% expressed a willingness to pay more for products with a high protein content.
That adds up to an excellent business opportunity click here to see our infographic with all the insights.
Based on that input, we have developed the following three concepts:
