In fact, according to the latest EY Future Consumer Index, consumers are responding to crisis by taking active control over their household spending, put less emphasis on products’ brands and shifted priorities towards affordability within a constrained family budget. In short, families continue to spend considerable amounts on a daily basis, but much more wisely.
As new families become more cautious in wellbeing as well as their spending, below are some smart choices to source from to target these customers.
