Thanks @The Gourmet Retailer for sharing our Healthy Eco 2017 Market LOHAS Consumer Annual Study insights for Earth Month: Health, Environment Influencing Shopping Decisions Clean labels, organic and non-GMO top the shopping list
Health and the environment are changing the way many consumers shop for groceries, according to the 2017 Market LOHAS (Lifestyle Of Health And Sustainability) Health & Natural Consumer Survey Study released at Natural Product Expo. These concerned shoppers are looking for clean product labels, buying fresh and purchasing organic, non-GMO and plant-based products to support the health of their families and the planet.
The Market LOHAS study found that 80 percent of health-conscious consumers look for labels with few, pronounceable ingredients.
LOHAS study featured in TGR's sister publication, Progressive Grocer.

Join other health and ‘green’ eco minded consumers who will make TODAY a Meatless Monday with a growing trend towards eating more plant based - vegetarian foods and proteins - consuming less meat.
Among the healthy eco findings from the newly released (March 2016) 10th Annual Market LOHAS MamboTrack Natural & Organic Shopper Study of 1000 respondents:
Healthy consumers are eating more Plant Based/Vegetarian Foods
Plant Based Eating as a ‘Green Step’
Health & eco conscious consumers are increasingly seeing the connection between food supply and protecting the earth and climate action. Along with taking other Green steps 7 in 10 health & eco shoppers report 'Consuming More Plant Based foods/vegetarian products' and 'Reducing Meat' as ‘Green Steps’ .
A key 2016 Market LOHAS Study Note: Not all ‘health minded’ consumers are ‘environmentally’ conscious – often health and eco mind are just a subset of the total 'health minded'. As the link between healthier food choices and a healthier planet becomes clearer, the share of LOHAS - healthy ‘green’ consumers should increase.
