Weight Watchers International Inc in Health and Wellness

Company Profile

About This Report

Nov 2017

Wellness is no longer simply exercise and nutrition, but also mindfulness. The trends around holistic consumerism and minimalism reflect this shift. Weight Watchers is in the middle of a transformation towards these trends with its “Beyond the scale” programme as a first step, emphasising healthy foods rather than only focusing on weight loss. There is a long way to go to capture the most current HW trends in its product portfolio, and to engage with consumers from a more personal perspective.
