marketing organic products
Marketing Organic Products…..
  • Organic products need to clearly define theirProduct Benefits– Organic foods must be marketed with a clearer definition of the product benefits if the organic trend is to begin to attract “Non-core” Organic consumers…………...
  • Guarantee the absence of artificial additives, including remnants from production methods; No Chemicals, No Pesticides, GMO Free, No Irradiated ingredients, No Antioxidants.
  • Offer the perception of improved levels of naturally occurring nutrients, A naturally BETTER TASTE, which would otherwise have been lost during mechanical mass production processes.
  • Meet consumer concerns with regard to environmental management and improved animal welfare.
  • A Safety guarantee for children’s food - A powerful new way to address parental concerns regarding the health of their children.
  • A guarantee of premium quality – Craftsmanship, quality and premium indulgence are becoming an influential way of marketing organics to new, non-core consumers. Offers psychological associations of honest craftsmanship, as opposed to mechanical mass production.

NPD - Organic Consumer Targeting





Source: Datamonitor 2002


Clear Organic Brand positioning will be vital



-The key to success in the organic sector is to focus first and foremost on identifying and targeting specific consumer groups that feel strongly enough about your specific Product benefit to pay a little extra for it.-Manufacturers need to address the issue of clear organic brand positioning!-At present, all organic products are positioned very broadly as ‘natural and organic’ with few making explicit references to the specific Product benefits inherent to the brand!For Example: No artificial additives or chemicals, Improved levels of naturally-occurring nutrients, GM Free, Improved animal welfare.free of artificial growth hormones, pesticide residues or genetic modifications
