New Nutrition Facts Label, Millennials, and Beverages

Published on Aug 2, 2016 By: Edwin Vargas

When it comes to Millennials and beverages, the trend is going towards healthier options when they sit down to enjoy a drink. With the increasing demand by Millennials for healthier and more fulfilling options, many products have sprung up to fill this need in interesting ways. Also, being a Millennial, I can see the appeal for these kinds of products. Due to my bad sleeping habits, it’s gotten harder to get out of bed in the morning, and during the day it can get difficult to remain focused and energized. It might be bad habits I picked from last semester, but at most I'll get six hours of sleep on average. I know this because my alarm app tells me so (unfortunately).

4 ways Millennials are redefining how to buy food

Published on Jun 10, 2016 By: Edwin Vargas

When it comes to buying food, the usual approach is to go to the local grocery store and buy whatever you plan on eating for the week right? Well, not exactly. Age actually influences what and how you buy. Back in the post-WW2 era, a sudden growth in population occurred, and those people are called Baby Boomers (1946-1964). Immediately after this generation came Generation X (1965-1980), after which comes Generation Y, or more affectionately, the Millennials (1981-1997). Generation Y tends to be called a lazy and entitled generation, but very technologically savvy (they need some merit!). However, despite these negative allocations, they are still the consumers of tomorrow, and they have unique quirks that will change how food companies will market their product.
