Research Strategy

We began our research with a thorough analysis of the company website of Kraft Heinz, specifically in the ‘Upcoming Events’ section; however, there was no information available on the website nor the company’s social media pages. We then found a list on their website of chief-executive level employees and attempted to find specific conjunctures the respective employees were planning to attend via their social media accounts and press releases. After exhausting the search for the specification of Kraft Heinz, we broadened our SEARCH to include all major CPG companies. We attempted to find specific events related to condiments, children's eating, targeting moms, or healthy eating by analyzing industry publications, articles, and CPG company websites; nonetheless, no specific information pertaining to the given categories in the CPG industry were publicly available. Thus, the information provided is events in the United States where director-level CPG company employees are listed as speakers for 2020, with some inclusion of health-related topics.
