Hands-on guides for better decisions in innovation, marketing and branding
The FourFactors® of Success was first introduced in the Food & Health Marketing Handbook 2003 and later refined in Wennström’s FourFactors® – how to innovate healthy brands in 2008. In 2014 our latest book The FourFactors for Growth Market Success was published.
The book explores emerging market opportunities in the food and beverage sector and outlines the key factors for launching or renovating a successful brand.
This strategic guide and practical toolbox examines the unique set of opportunities and challenges that entering an emerging market can bring. It considers the fast pace of change in consumer mindsets and expectations; the fast growth across most food and beverage categories and the increasing competition from local as well as international players.

Disciples of The Church of Healthy Eating
There is a new wave of engaged and convicted consumers, who's purchase choices increasingly are influenced by emotional, and almost “religious" beliefs, rather than facts and rational arguments. These consumers are not only convicted that their food choices are important for their own well-beeing; they believe that they can do good by the food choices they make, and they are not afraid to preach about their convictions to others. We call these consumers the "Disciples of the Church of Healthy Eating".Read More
