Consumer Planning Program

The foodservice industry has limited data on how consumers make their decisions regarding food purchases away-from-home. The Consumer Planning Program (CPP) was formed, in partnership with Datassential, to delve deeper into the consumer mindset, to find out why consumers pick a foodservice venue, how those decisions are made and what manufacturers (and operators) can do to influence those decisions.

IFMA manufacturer members who are part of the Consumer Planning Program Committee have made financial contributions to support the initiative that drives topics of interest for the report. Read more about the benefits of becoming a member of the Consumer Planning Program.
