Personalization offers an important growth area for brands across Food, Drinks and Cosmetics and Toiletries. However, the right Personalization strategy is needed or brands risk personalizing products in a way that will only interest a niche audience. As consumers become overwhelmed and fatigued with the abundance of products presented on retail shelves, manufacturers need to come up with ever more unusual and eye catching products and experiences in order to differentiate themselves. In food and beverage, personalization should be used to offer novelty, such as pushing the boundaries of the extreme and helping consumers make the product their own. In personal care, personalization is more about providing better results; with a third of global consumers feeling that their needs in personal care are not understood, there is an opportunity for manufacturers for further personalization.
