This research was conducted in three stages:

  • Desk research and social listening to identify the most engaging key topics and the consumer profiles interacting with them
  • Social profiling and primary qualitative research to identify the behaviours and attitudes of consumers who are engaging with food topics, with a view to building a number of consumer typologies (distinct type of activist food consumer)
  • Analysis of relevant behavioural change theory to identify a possible logic model (sequence of steps from passive to active) for activist consumers
