Consumer Understanding - Trends We are in close touch with consumers worldwide. The most important countries are continuously screened to analyse new trends and identify new business opportunities for our customers. According to our latest findings in consumer trends, our market is dominated by expectations like taste, health, convenience, pleasure and nutrition. Providing effective answers to these expectations is the basis of our R&D and marketing efforts.
