The role of someone working in food marketing
For those of you looking to get into a food marketing career, it would probably for you to understand what it is exactly that you would be expected to do. Unfortunately, food marketing as a job cannot be generalised into one simple description, as different positions require various levels of experience and many varying degrees of involvement.
Your function within a company could be anything from promotional advertisements to market research and liaison with potential clients. A quick Google search will throw up the following definition: “Food marketing is defined as the activities that take place within the food system between the farm gate and the consumer. This includes processing, wholesaling, retailing, food service, and transportation functions and excludes all functions performed by producers on the farm.”
This is a very bland description and fails to acknowledge what is undoubtedly one of the most important factors to food marketing – market research, which involves the likes of branding, positioning, test marketing, segmentation and many other areas.
Lars Perner, a professor of clinical marketing at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles has written a very detailed brief on the position of a food marketer, and their role amongst the food industry, both in manufacture and consumerism.
