Of note in the study are the differences highlighted between various countries. When compared to other countries in the study, more consumers in France (81%) and Canada (79%) were likely to mention “Value” as a decision-making factor when shopping for food. In contrast, consumers in Russia (51%) and Brazil (52%) were least likely to mention “Value” as a decision-making factor.

Beyond value, the study data indicates other factors that Marketers should communicate at the point of purchase.
