Frequently Asked Questions
About our data & insights:
- We are happy to discuss your data needs to see if a custom set of data is possible. Please contact Claire Morton Reynolds if you are looking for custom data.
- NBJ defines the natural and organic products industry as including dietary supplements, natural and organic food and beverage, functional food and beverage, and natural and organic personal care and household products. View NBJ’s full Data Model and Methodology.
- NBJ recognizes that you can’t run your business simply by looking at what has happened in the past. Smart companies look to future market trends. Thus, NBJ estimates generally include 3 to 5 years of industry forecasts to help executives construct market-based business plans.
These forecasts are derived from NBJ’s in-depth understanding of the industry. A few of the factors NBJ considers are past performance, industry maturity, media, science, ingredient trends, trade shows, parallel industries, and the economy. View NBJ’s full Data Model and Methodology.
NBJ’s general model of the natural and organic products industry segments consumer sales for six sales channels: Natural and Specialty Retail, Mass Market Retail, Internet, Practitioner, MLM/Network Marketing, and Mail Order/DRTV/Radio. Readers will see the same sales channel breakouts for most of NBJ’s data, with a few exceptions noted on page 7 of the complete Data Model and Methodology.
