Global Consumers Putting Their Money Where Their Heart Is

Wednesday, 30 July 2014 17:30
New York, NY, July 2014—A recent Nielsen poll finds that 55 percent of global online consumers in 60 countries say they would reward socially conscious companies with their shopping dollars. The propensity to buy socially responsible brands is strongest in Asia-Pacific (64%), Latin America (63%) and Middle East/Africa (63%). The numbers for North America and Europe are 42 and 40 percent, respectively.

Apparently, it’s no longer a question if consumers care about social impact. Consumers do care and show they do through their actions. Now the focus is on determining how a company’s brand can effectively create shared value by marrying the appropriate social cause to consumer segments.
“Consumers around the world are saying loud and clear that a brand’s social purpose is among the factors that influence purchase decisions,” said Amy Fenton, global leader of public development and sustainability, Nielsen. “This behavior is on the rise and it provides opportunities for meaningful impact in our communities, in addition to helping to grow share for brands.”

Cookie Monsters’ Delight

Gardena, CA, December 2013—When butter, sugar, flour, and eggs converge, magic happens. Add a splash of vanilla, a dusting of cinnamon, or morsels of semisweet chocolate, and things get even better. Now, imagine all that goodness condensed into a svelte, crispy coin of a cookie.

Cookie Chips marry the satisfying crunch of a chip with the irresistible flavor and aroma of a classic cookie. Made with only the finest, all-natural ingredients, this snack-dessert hybrid brings homemade quality to supermarket shelves. We’re talking milled cane sugar, hormone-free butter, cage-free eggs, and pure Bourbon vanilla, for starters. But just as important is what’s left out of the recipe. Cookie Chips never contain trans-fats, artificial flavors or colors, preservatives or GMOs.

Gardiner, New York, November 2013—A couple of years back (May and November 2011 to be exact,) we published two articles about the company we’re about to discuss. They do good work and have decent products—so we think they’re worth at least three articles. Here goes.

When Bob MacLeod and Steve Byckiewicz first spotted a barrel filled with big, ugly olive oil bar soaps, they hadn’t the faintest idea that they would form the building blocks of a leading natural personal care brand that would be distributed around the globe.

Atlanta, Georgia, June 2014— High blood pressure, also known as hypertension, or HBP, may be painless as it develops, but its effects on your health are incredibly dangerous.

In addition to damaging the lining of the arteries and increasing your risk of heart disease, hypertension also can cause heart failure, stroke and kidney disease, including kidney failure. It can boost your risk for dementia and, for men, cause erectile dysfunction.

Based on data from its scientifically-validated health risk assessment the RealAge Test, Sharecare, the online health and wellness engagement platform created by Dr. Mehmet Oz and WebMD founder Jeff Arnold, has identified 10 American cities where residents struggle most with hypertension: Greensboro, North Carolina; New Orleans; Memphis, Tennessee; Greenville, South Carolina; Louisville, Kentucky; St. Louis; Las Vegas, Nevada; Virginia Beach, Virginia; Buffalo, New York, and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

Lahaina, Maui, April 2014—It has been almost 25 years since the former Pioneer Mill Company first started planting coffee on its Kaanapali Estate in West Maui. Today, MauiGrown Coffee is flourishing as one of the largest commercial coffee growers in the U.S. They've also carved a growing market niche worldwide for their 100% MAUI Origin Coffee.

"Back in 1988 we planted four Arabica varietals - Yellow Caturra, Red Catuai, Typica and Mokka," said James "Kimo" Falconer, President of MauiGrown Coffee. "At the time, it was considered cutting edge to have multiple coffee varieties planted on a single estate. Through the years, we focused on refining our varietal approach to growing coffee and our harvesting and processing methods. Today, the fruits of our labor are paying off."
