“Made in” – Addressing Reputational Risk in Global Food Markets

06 Jun, 15:00–16:15
The Global Economy in Search of a Balance
Pavilion G, conference hall G1

The global food market is evolving rapidly, and consumer preferences are migrating towards products with unique properties and guaranteed high quality – including the ability to check their properties and origin at the touch of a mobile screen. The pace of life continues to accelerate, information noise is increasing, and consumers are reacting more to resonant offers with their hearts rather than their minds. Consumer preferences in the global markets become polarized based on the reputation of certain countries. What guides today’s progressive consumer in choosing food products? How important is a country’s reputation for developing the agricultural sector? What positions does Russia occupy in the world food rating? How can Russian products be made more memorable and in higher demand?
