Boomers grew up during an era when eating out became a form of entertainment, not just a special occasion affair," said Kimberly Egan, CEO of CCD Innovation. Theyve also become accustomed to convenience food in all its forms and expect variety and choice at food retailers, specialty groceries and supermarkets."
It is important for food industry specialists to understand nutrition, aging and convenience because it is part of the boomer market.
