The food market is evolving. With the global health and wellness food market expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.49% between 2013-2018, companies are going to have to reevaluate their ingredients and food to determine whether they are going to provide a health or benefit to drive business from picky consumers (Market Research, 2021).
The global health and wellness market reached a value of US$ 3.31 Billion in 2020. Health and wellness refer to the state of complete wellbeing of the body, mind and spirit. Some of the important aspects of the health and wellness industry include personal care/beauty, nutrition, weight management, fitness, preventive/personalized medicine, etc. Apart from this, services based on wellness real estate, wellness tourism, health spas and thermal and mineral springs are also offered to consumers and form an integral operational part of the industry (Diet Food & Weight Loss, 2021)
The growing prevalence of chronic lifestyle diseases across the globe is one of the key factors driving the growth of the market.

For this stage, we will focus in 5 of its major cities: Indianapolis (13% of tot. population), Fort Wayne (4%), Carmel (1.5%), Fishers (1.4%), Noblesville (1.0%) and Westfield (0.6%).
Target market in numbers:
|Projected Population (2030)||435,321||993,289||1,428,610|
|Adults (25 – 64)||178,500||513,000||691,500|

|Labor Force (employed)||180,004||476,851||656,855|
Indiana has a Per Capita Personal Income (2019) of $48,678 and poverty rate of 11.9% and almost 50% of its population (3.2 MM) is employed.
Target Market Rationale
According to the Institute for Health Metrics, poor nutrition has nearly three times the impact on health as low fitness. While more than two-thirds of the U.S. population classified as obese and 86 million Americans struggling with pre-diabetes, the need for better, more accessible nutrition education is evident.
One of the biggest inhibitors to intentional eating is the workplace. Work for most people is stressful and mentally draining – their schedule can be unpredictable, and they are surrounded by people who are inevitably influencing behavior. Most of us are creatures of habit with daily routines centered around work demands. However, these factors actually make the workplace a prime opportunity to improve our intentional eating game.
Eating with intention requires thought and focus, and it can be hard when there are so many life stresses competing for that mental energy. “How many times have you been starving after a long, stressful day and did not have the energy to think about what foods for dinner would make you feel the best? Or you’ve tried to stick to a certain diet and gotten confused or overwhelmed by all the conflicting nutrition information out there.
Our company will make eating at work/home even easier by providing a wide variety of unquestionably healthy, fully prepared meals that are crafted by specialized chefs advised by nutritionists and other health experts.

Hello Fresh is a company is an online service consumer frequent to purchase meals for their week. They allow consumers to do so through an app. Consumers have the option of setting their app preferences to receive recommendations for themselves based on the following subcategories. Options include meal plans for carnivores, vegetarians, for those who count their calories, gourmet options, and more (Hello fresh, 2021). Hello Fresh has consumers choose between twenty-two or more meals a week. From here, there’s chefs prepare the meals to be delivered to consumers households. Once received, consumers can begin making their meals for the week with the assistance of recipes given. Additionally, consumers are given the option to continue ordering meals for the following weeks, or they can cancel their subscription if not satisfied with their order (Hello Fresh, 2021).

This has to be done before the next delivery date they’ve set up though. They have four meal plans that consumers can chose from as well (Hello Fresh, 2021). According to their website, they also come up with meals specially designed for consumers with the help of nutritional specialists (Hello Fresh, 2021). Typical meals, calorie wise, can be seen to be up to six-hundred and fifty calories a meal (Hello Fresh, 2021).
Consumers are also given the option to add onto their orders for an additional cost, such as garlic bread as an example (Hello Fresh, 2021). In terms of delivery time, Hello Fresh delivers consumer’s meals to their households across three days (Hello Fresh, 2021). They serve people who reside in the United States, although don’t deliver to those who reside in Alaska or Hawaii. In fact, Hello Fresh service’s is available in over 15 countries across the globe. On every meal prepared and packaged, they also include a nutritional label to include what ingredients went into preparing their meals. For pricing, they have set it up where each serving is seven dollars and forty-nine cents (Hello Fresh, 2021). The recipes and meals included are intended to serve two people within a household, in which three recipes are included for the week. The cost for the weekly order is fifty-three dollars and ninety-four cents (Hello Fresh, 2021). Therefore, they charge their customers on a weekly basis, not monthly for a subscription (Hello Fresh). They don’t give consumers the option of subscribing or not to their service in order to purchase meals.
Many people who have utilized Hello Fresh’s services enjoyed it for their low expenses and flexibility. Some utilize their service in replacement of going grocery shopping or out to eat as a result. They also work on sustainability efforts such as portioning out their meals in an effort to eliminate the food from being wasted. Additionally, they have an approach of reducing their carbon footprint (Hello Fresh, 2021). However, according to their website, they have meals to be served around dinner time. Not breakfast options or advertising them as lunch options as well.
Based on their prices, an average meet and veggies plan for a serving would be 8.99 plus shipping. While they have several other meal options and prices can vary based on the plan you choose and the number of servings ordered.

Much like other competitors in the industry, they mention their meals are designed to be served at dinner. Therefore, not offering options for breakfast or labeling them as lunch options. They have a focus on portion control to help eliminate food waste as well (Blue Apron, 2021). All of their ingredients that come in the box are also served on ice to keep everything from spoiling throughout delivery (Blue Apron, 2021). Therefore, if people aren’t home at the time of their delivery, their food doesn’t go bad.

If consumers chose the four meal per serving options, those that have pre-existing health conditions don’t get that option. They would have to choose the two serving per meal, per what the website mentions (Blue Apron, 2021). The four servings per meal options include meals for those who focus on meals containing meat, fish, other meat options, and offer meals that are health conscious (Blue Apron, 2021). Whereas, the two serving per meal focuses on meals that offer meals approved for those utilizing programs like weight watchers, health-conscious meals, or the option to choose meals focused on pre-existing health conditions. Consumers have the option to choose either the two serving per meal or the four serving per meal. However, prices between the two vary.

Brand awareness is essential for Fresh & Natural, especially since we are a startup. One of the most effective ways to create awareness is through digital platforms considering we have a mobile app that connects us to our consumers to our services. The main target for the awareness program is to bring in a profit of 10% in the first four months.
As part of the brand awareness goal, we can create posters, videos, and advertisements across all social media platforms. With this, we will be able to reach a good number of people. However, given that reaching people does not translate into immediate customers, we need to make sure that the content we are sharing about Fresh & Natural has a broader reach because the more comprehensive the reach, the higher the number of prospective customers and sales. We can also incentivize the sharing of our advertisements, for example, creating a promo code that will allow them to order more food for less. That will encourage consumers to want to buy our products.
Given that Fresh & Natural is in Indiana, we can hold sampling programs for people to come and taste our food and buy them if they like it. We can introduce our healthy and natural foods in the market and encourage people to lean towards the consumption of Fresh & Natural nutritional meals by the end of the first month. We can also partner with other businesses which advocate for natural foods. By partnering with these companies, we will also be able to gain more customers.
Natural & Fresh can also provide personalized meals for our consumers. This will encourage more people to choose our products as their go-to nutritional meals. Everybody likes something made especially for them because it makes them feel understood and cared for. This strategy will also pull in new consumers and make us known in the food market.
Improve customer retention rates
As Fresh & Natural, we can improve our customer retention rates by sending them welcoming emails whenever they sign up. After customers are gotten through brand awareness, we must keep the consumers loyal to us, and that can only happen if we show them we care about them and their opinions. Feedback forms play an important role after a customer receives a service, which is the food and service delivery. The them that interact directly with the customers need to be trained on dealing with different customers to provide excellent service.
Given that the economic times are tough, we need to be customer-focused regarding the pricing and billing. High costs will make us lose customers, while meager costs will make the consumers question the quality of our foods. As such, it essential to maintain a reasonable balance between the demands of the consumers and the economy at large. Additionally, we can engage our consumers during product promotion; for example, we can make public the feedback we get from our consumers. We can offer rewards for the most loyal customer. We can also create promotions that will benefit the consumers and us.
In promoting services for Fresh & Natural Foods, within interstate 465, this is more designated to groups who will use the app for services. With this in mind, social media will be a huge presence in promoting our services to the demographics within this population. According to Macro Trends, within I-465, the population in Indianapolis as of 2021, is increasing at a growth rate of 1.44% (Macro Trends, 2021). As of 2020, there’s a large percentage of females living within the Indianapolis region surpassing males. This includes those living within and directly outside of Indianapolis and I-465 (Suburban Stats, 2020). Total female population in Indianapolis, as of 2020, was 424,099, and male population was 396,346 of the total population (Suburban Stats, 2020). Therefore, there was a total population of 820, 445 people residing in Indianapolis (Suburban Stats, 2020). Median age is roughly 34 years of age (Suburban Stats, 2020). Therefore, this includes those in the workforce, who may also work within the Indianapolis region.
Family led homes are what makes up the majority of the Indianapolis region, which is useful information in regards to preparing meals and being able to serve families in neighborhoods outside of interstate 465 through our food trucks. With the demographic information in mind, this will allow Fresh & Food to better understand the target market in which the company is offering services to and best practices to reach this target market through promotions.
With the median age in Indianapolis being 34 years of age, and the increasing use of social media from the millennial populations, the use of social media for promotion purposes would serve our company in a great way in terms of promoting services. According to Pew Research, the top social media platforms people utilize on a daily basis is Facebook at 70%, Snapchat at 59%, Instagram at 59%, Youtube at 54%, and only 46% utilize Twitter (Pew Research, 2021). With being a fairly new umbrella company, creating brand awareness is vitally important. With this in mind, for food truck deliveries, food trucks will travel to different locations within the Indianapolis region and the company will post on social media the location of the food truck, to encourage others to come out. With utilizing social media, the company could propose to those who try our products, that if they post a picture of their meal or a story detailing their experience of Fresh and Natural Food’s services/ products, they will receive a 10% discount on future purchases. This will also help in creating brand awareness without having to take a huge pay cut.
According to an article, they mention the benefits of social media use for businesses by stating, “social media can reach broad audiences, target specific groups based on location, many forms of social media are free for businesses and paid options are at low costs, communicate on a personal level to groups and individuals, inform others instantly by a post, and no need for purchasing high tech to get the companies message across.” (2020). Along with social media, the company will inform others of upcoming specials, menu items of that week, and inform others of the loyalty program the company offers after making so many purchases. With being a healthy food delivery company, locations for our food trucks will be suited at gyms, and fitness studios alike to reach the companies target market, who also put an emphasis on fitness and clean eating. Also, where a lot of traffic is, to reach as many people as possible in hopes of increasing word of mouth referrals about the services/products offered. However, products and services from the company will be offered to everyone no matter lifestyle preferences, regardless. In offering these services outside gyms and fitness studios alike, the company will also ask these centers to promote products/ services the company offers by handing out coupons to everyone.
In relation to promoting delivery services, social media will still be utilized in the same domain. In addition to social media being used for promotion purposes, to increase brand awareness and reach the company’s other target market, being groups and the working people of Indianapolis, working with other companies in promoting the services/products to start out will help. Especially catering purposes to businesses alike that may want to offer their employees healthier food options to appease all lifestyles/ preferences in their work environments for conferences, charity events, meetings, etc. For utilizing the company app, the first time, users will receive a request to subscribe to text alert notifications to their cell phones letting them know when we are in the area to make a delivery, and exclusive discounts and promotions taking place those on social media won’t have access to. For those who refer a friend/ family member to try our services by sending them an email through our app, by inserting their friend/families email on their own account, will be entered into a giveaway. Giveaways will include a free meal kit to one individual, who will receive a months’ worth of healthy meals from our company.
