Ecommerce certainly is not a future concept. It’s already here, growing—and dramatically changing the landscape for everything from food and beverage R&D to consumers’ purchase decisions. Each day brings more new foods and drinks exclusively developed for online sales—ranging from Amazon’s Wickedly Prime teas, snacks, soups and spreads; to PepsiCo’s new “Drinkfinity” flavor pods.

What’s next for this market in 2019 and what do leading CPG innovation leaders and small industry disruptors need to know? Come hear New Products Conference speaker Manu Sareen, Managing Partner, Marketplace Explained; and Amazon’s former General Manager for Private Brands (2013-2017).
