Food Marketing

SHA HF 765

This course will explore marketing and brand management for food products, components and ingredients in the restaurant and retail industries. Of particular interest will be the convergence of various parts of the food system and the erosion of conceptual distinctions regarding the source and nature of prepared foods. This will include the extension of retail brands into the restaurant channel and vice versa, as well as the supply chain for agricultural and manufactured products consumed in the restaurant channel. The course will cover strategic and tactical marketing issues related to food including new product development, manufacturing and production, packaging, pricing and distribution. It will also cover relevant topics in consumer behavior, such as connoisseurship. Some attention will be given to sustainability, including the marketing dynamics related to the slow and organic foods movements. HF765 meets concurrently with HF565, but the graduate section has additional assignments. Graduate students must be registered concurrently in another department of the university and must obtain approval from their faculty advisor in the home department.
