Every day, food and agriculture brands face a new wave of increased pressure from consumers, digital influencers, regulators and other stakeholders to drive change.

It wasn’t always this way: farmers produced crops and livestock, sent them through various channels to store shelves and restaurants, and consumers purchased what was available. They didn’t have much influence. Today, though new communication channels, consumers and influencers have a direct voice and are using it to play a larger role to impact how the foods system operates. With so much at stake, how will you adapt and grow trust in your brand?

Look East can help.

We live these challenges alongside our clients every day.

Why Shared Values

While facts are important, research shows that shared values are 3 to 5 times more important in building trust. Commonalities move people to experience a greater connection with your brand. That’s why we focus on identifying and communicating the values you share with your stakeholders to build trust in your products, processes, people and brands.
