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".
