How consumers decide where and how to get their next meal is not a linear process. It is a journey influenced by triggers, need states, and occasions. For the first time ever, the Consumer Food Journey® maps how consumers decide where and how they get their next meal. The resource is available exclusively through the IFMA ScopeSM online portal.
