  • 1. How We Eat: Retail and Foodservice Opportunities in When and Where America EatsMany factors influence how we as Americans eat—everything from our age to how much money weearn to whether or not we have children in our lives whose dietary needs or whims must be prioritizeddaily. As a result our eating habits are as varied and individualized as we ourselves are. Food industryplayers nonetheless have opportunities to target a wide variety of consumers whose choices oftenrevolve among three key priorities: health, convenience, and variety.Browse Report @: http://www.reportsnreports.com/reports/183816-how-we-eat-retail-and-foodservice-opportunities-in-when-and-where-america-eats.htmlPublished: July 2012 No. of Pages: 251Price Single User License: US $ 3500 Price Corporate User License: US $ 7000In this data-packed Packaged Facts report, How We Eat: Retail and Foodservice Opportunities in Whenand Where America Eats, we examine modern mealtime habits and how these three core food prioritiescombine into a variety of trends that will continue to influence the food and beverage landscape intothe foreseeable future. Our look at when Americans eat not only tracks in detail the times when variousconsumer segments are having meals, but how these patterns influence their tendencies to snack, to eatmore than three meal a day, to make unhealthy food choices, and to eat socially or alone.Our analysis also spans retail and foodservice. Food spending, whether at home or at restaurants, hasbeen driven by the youngest and the oldest adult brackets. seniors are spending somewhat more onboth food at home and food away from home than they did in 2007, while younger adult consumers arespending a great deal more on food at home (20%) and food away from home (23%). Spending growthamong younger adults is driven by population increases, whereas spending increases among olderconsumers suggest a lifestyle change—not coincidentally, 2011 marks the first year that Baby Boomershave reached the age of 65. These consumers bring with them not only household wealth accrued overtime, but also restaurant engagement levels greater than that of earlier generations, driving spendinggrowth.
