Eating Occasions Dashboards 2021
Answering the question: How has the pandemic influenced changes in how we eat?
This special report explores the context, needs and behaviors associated with eating and drinking occasions. Utilizing The Hartman Group’s proprietary Eating Occasions Compass database, Eating Occasions Dashboards 2021 explores American trends in eating and drinking occasions in 2021 compared to data from both 2020 and 2019, and also presents dashboard analysis of 8 eating occasions by daypart. It was researched and prepared by Hartman’s Retainer Services team and provides our analysts’ perspectives to help marketers connect to the cultural changes occurring in the U.S.
The report is derived from analysis of Hartman’s Eating Occasions Compass database which analyzes food and beverage and meal dayparts, location, social composition, and need states, as well as items consumed and broadly when and where items were acquired.
Understanding the dynamics of eating occasions is the gateway to opening new growth opportunities through innovation, messaging and data-driven strategy.
