With rising consumer demand for healthy products in mind, the Food Institute Podcast invited Fran Guzman, lead of strategy and insights at the Kraft Heinz Co., to discuss recent developments in the healthy food space. The conversation focuses on emerging healthy beverage brands, consumer demand for healthy products, a turn towards real foods among consumers while snacking, and the use of food as medicine. Additionally, Guzman talks about the use of CBD/THC in foods, the legal uncertainty surrounding the products, and why a brand like Kraft Heinz may be wary to enter the space in the current climate.
