Retail Industry Insights

Given the increasing popularity of podcasts, the Retail Dietitians Business Alliance has embraced this method of education for you, our members.  Today, we’re pleased to announce the addition of two new podcasts, which are available for free listening and download on iTunes, Stitcher, and SoundCloud.  Hosted by RDBA CEO Phil Lempert in his Lost in the Supermarket® podcast series, these podcasts are guaranteed to be of value to retail RDs.  

The two new podcasts are described here.

Today’s Nutrition Challenges

The majority of today’s consumers are seeking healthy foods, but many admit that finding healthful options is difficult.  During this podcast, Brian Hannigan, Sr. Marketing Director of Innovation Strategy at PepsiCo and Jessica Jones, MS, RDN, CDE, from Food Heaven Made Easy, discuss the current state of nutrition and unique challenges for consumers in today’s food landscape.  Discussion includes how dietitians and the food industry can learn from each other, function-forward and plant-based food trends, and the future of food.

Communicating Health & Wellness in Non-foods Categories 

As the leading wellness experts in grocery, retail dietitians are now being charged with expanding health & wellness guidance to non-food categories. But for many of us, giving advice on better choices in health & beauty care, supplements, and even pet food can be challenging. In this podcast, Monica Amburn, MS, RD, LDN, Sr. Director of Health & Wellness with healthyAisles® will discuss the biggest wellness trends in these non-food categories, and how dietitians can best address these trends, responsibly, with shoppers. As a companion to the podcast, this list of resources provides more information about controversial ingredients in non-food categories:
