"It's not that 'clean
eating' has declined
in popularity," says
Jenna Bell, senior vice
president of Pollock
Communications.
"We are still seeing
the consumer push
for cleaner labels and
the industry continues
their work to deliver
it. But what's different
here is that millennial
consumers are going
beyond eliminating a
food group, like cutting

gluten, to making more
drastic changes that
require real lifestyle
adjustments."

Tilapia demand
falls worldwide
Demand for tilapia is
falling worldwide, according to a new study.
The global tilapia
trade fell 6% in the first
two quarters of 2017,
driven by increased
demand for other specialty fishes, according
to the report, from Fact
MR. Those alternative
fishes include pangasius, according to
the study.
"A special palate for
pangasius has been witnessed among seafood
consumers worldwide.
Led by Vietnam, nearly
half of the global supply
of pangasius is held
by India, Bangladesh,
Indonesia, Malaysia, and
China. The U.S. and China continue to remain
the largest consumers
of pangasius.
Following the
increasing domestic
demand and lower
prices of pangasius,
Chinese tilapia farmers
are adopting farming
of other fish varieties
including pangasius.
These dynamics continue to deter the future
growth of the Chinese
tilapia exports in prominent tilapia market.

Traditional supermarkets top other grocery
channels in a number of

satisfaction, according
to a new study.

7 p.m. - 4.3, vs. 4.27 for

Trader Joe's again
tops grocery
retailer list
Trader Joe's repeated as
the top-rated grocery
retailer according to
the Retailer Preference
Index from dunnhumby,
a customer data science
firm in Chicago.
The RPI study
surveyed 7,000 U.S.
households to determine which of the top
56 largest grocer retailers have the strongest
combination of financial performance and
consumer emotional
sentiment. The top five
was rounded out by
Costco, supermarket
newcomer Amazon,
H-E-B and Wegmans.
"Because of pressures
that grocery retailers
are facing today, a common reaction is to think
only of the short term.
But by focusing on the
customer preference
levers that we have
identified in this RPI to
inform their strategies,
retailers can buy an
insurance policy to ensure they can weather
the storms ahead," says
Jose Gomes, North
American president for
dunnhumby.
The top 12 also
includes Market Basket,
Sam's Club, Sprouts,
WinCo, Walmart, Aldi
and Peapod.
The overall RPI
ranking evaluates
retailer performance
on seven independent
pillars: price, quality,
digital, operations,
convenience, discounts/
rewards and speed.
