Thursday May 3rd, 1.30pm to 4.45pm, The Hive at Airfield Estate. Very limited availability. Tickets €20 / Students €10
We are hosting the third event of the AIRFIELD ESTATE FOOD SERIES, on Thursday, 3 May. The event aims to generate discussion, debate and dialogue on what influences consumer food choices in the supermarket….what they buy and why they buy it?
We’ll explore consumer food choices in Ireland today following three distinct tracks and conversation styles:
Discussion: What do we buy and why? We want to establish how the consumer is affected and influenced and how this effect has translated into the real life actions of the buyer. How has retail embraced the consumer and their attitudes, what is the actual psychology behind these attitudes and what does the statistics actually show us about what our spending habits are.
Debate: How can we buy better? We will aim to decode the effects of marketing and retail product positioning, discussing where to go for trusted information so that consumers can make food choices that are better for people, planet and pocket. Who’s looking out for the consumer and why?
Dialogue (invitation only): Closed session with invited guests to create dialogue around collaborative ways we can interact with the consumer so that they can make more sustainable food choices.
