Many are unsure about how lower calorie, lower fat and lower sodium options will taste; and this uncertainty often prevents them from trying the broad variety of better-for-you products stocked in every aisle of the store. While 82% agree making small changes now can have a big impact on the calories they consume this year, 7 in 10 are selective about the low-calorie products they purchase. Coupons are an effective way to drive trial. By lowering the out-of-pocket cost, coupons reduce the risk of trying a product for the first time. These insights led a team at the Catalina Marketing Corporation to develop Simple Substitutes®, a marketing campaign built on the premise that: Small changes in the foods we choose can have a big impact on the overall amount of calories, fat, cholesterol and sodium consumed each year Direct-to-shopper campaigns have the power to drive trial of better-for-you products among previously resistant shoppers. To assess the power of the Simple Substitutes® concept, a combination of in-market testing and attitudinal research was conducted through a collaborative initiative led by the Catalina Marketing Corporation and the Food Marketing Institute.
