FMI Releases Power Of Health, Well-Being In Food Industry Report


FMI – The Food Industry Association has released the “2022 Power of Health and Well-Being in the Food Industry” report, which offers consumer perspectives on health and well-being in the grocery store and an update on industry progress in those areas.

The COVID-19 pandemic shifted Americans’ eating habits, with 50 percent of consumers reporting that they dine more at home now than before the pandemic. Shoppers feel they are eating healthy (40 percent), but also indicate there is room for improvement (60 percent). Still, 76 percent of shoppers put either a lot or some effort into selecting nutritious and healthy food options.

“This year’s The Power of Health and Well-being in the Food Industry report is released during a compelling time to be involved in issues around hunger, nutrition and health, as organizations across the country are banding together to work on solutions to improve food access and affordability and to reduce diet-related disease,” said Krystal Register, senior director of health and well-being, FMI.

This report includes snippets from other key FMI research reports, including U.S. Grocery Shopper Trends, The Power of Meat, The Power of Seafood, The Power of Private Brands and The Power of Plant-Based Foods and Beverages to highlight evolving health perspectives across categories.

“The grocery store is becoming a destination for health and well-being, supported by food as medicine programs and initiatives that focus on the role that food plays in prevention and overall health, disease management and treatment, improvement of nutrition security and promotion of food safety,” Register said.

This report highlights many initiatives, along with topics ranging from public policy to gene editing. “As we move forward together as an industry to meet consumers in the aisles and online, we look forward to continued conversation and collaboration on everything from front of pack labeling to family meals,” she said.
