Summary
How to differentiate Marketing between Aging Consumers and Other Audiences in Food markets shows marketers how they can target the emerging opportunities among an important, under-targeted, and misunderstood consumer group: older consumers. An aging population means the consumption of those aged 55 and over will only grow, and to successfully cater to them, it is important for manufacturers to understand their motivations. To do this, the report highlights new product development for effectively targeting this group's motivations, and offers strategic recommendations to capitalize on the evolving motivations driving their consumption in both developed and developing economies.

Key Findings
- Senior consumers are often considered as being overly concentrated on health, however, it is a far less important motivator than price, superior taste and convenience.

- Consumption motivators among those aged 55 and over are similar to other adult groups. Disruptive NPD based solely on age will fail to connect with an older audience.

- The older generation does not see their age as a burden and don't want to be seen as fragile. They want inclusive products, as opposed to specifically targeting their age

- When the older generation does have age-aligned health problems, they seek products that are aimed at the condition rather than age bracket.

- The demand for food products providing “insperiences”, experiences at home, will grow, as it not only saves the effort of going out, but also offers better value for money, which is important for this group.

- Culture and traditions define consumption patterns, especially for the older generation; rather than trying to change them, manufacturers and retailers should launch products that fit into consumers current lifestyles
