Reduced Sodium Ham – Prototype Case

Consumer Fit

Consumers are becoming more and more aware of their sodium intake. The Dietary Reference intake of sodium for an average U.S. adult should be less than 2,300mg1, but the average consumption is 3,400mg2. With 77 percent of the average person’s daily sodium intake coming from processed and restaurant foods3, consumers are looking for foods like this reduced sodium ham that can help them balance their sodium intake while still maintaining the great taste they demand.

Points of Differentiation
