With the surveys we have done, we have been told by customers and experts that we are looking for a good customer service and technical help line, which will be provided as well.
Speaking with the experts and food stuffs material distributors we have found that what we need is training on the product to allow for a better knowledge base to allow for easier selling. We also stated if we discount material on our end for selling purposes we would agree to discount the material for the consumer. Allowing people that would not normally purchase the product the chance to do so, and for the awareness of the product to grow and become more of a household name. Food stuff materials have become one of the most popular products for cooking and the higher income demographic due to the lack of maintenance needed and durability.

Whole Foods had pretty much maxed out market share in the “organic and natural” customer segment, but were pursuing growth. Research indicated that 80% of first- time Whole Foods shoppers became loyal customers, and “Foodless” represented a highly prized customer segment with the most untapped growth potential. So the question was how to appeal to this segment more effectively and inspire Foodless to try shopping at Whole Foods for the first time. The answer was a shift in brand strategy. We De-emphasized the organic/natural messaging, and developed a new brand strategy targeting Foodless (without alienating the “earthy-crunchier”) captured n the tagging “Passionately Picky’.
The strategy was expressed in an advert campaign focused on getting Foodless excited about a specific food item. Each advert told the story of a single item that exemplified Whole Foods’ “passionate peskiness” in scouring the globe for the best foods in the world. The micro-success of this campaign was the consistent selling out of the items advertised in the campaign. The far more important macro-success was: a) Driving immediate first-time visits by Foodless that sought the specific product advertised. B) Delivering the message to the broader Food audience that Whole Foods shares their passion for the best foods, not Just the most organic/natural foods.
