1. Spitaler, B. Which gluten-free products should Schaer launch on the Dutch market?:.

Degree: 2012, Delft University of Technology

This project aims at developing new gluten-free food product concepts aligned with the Dutch market needs for the Italian gluten-free food producer Dr. Schaer. Therefore, it is essential to identify and understand the needs of the Dutch consumers.The new gluten-free food products should deliver unique benefits and superior values to the consumers and differ from the competitors.The literature suggests that to create successful products it seems important to involve the consumer throughout the whole process.Therefore, in this project most emphasis is put on the identification of the needs of the Dutch consumers and how to translate the gained insights into new product concepts. The first phase of the project concerns the internal analysis that establishes the strengths and weaknesses for a new product concept development.The results of the internal analysis indicate that the strategic focus of the company possibly does not fulfill the demand and the needs of the Dutch market and that the current product offer does not completely satisfy the needs and the demands of the Dutch market. The second phase concerns the customer research. A qualitative research has been applied to reveal the needs, behaviors and opinions of the Dutch consumers. Through personal in-depth interviews it has been possible to gain insights in the purchase behavior and the satisfaction level of the consumers with the company and the products offered by Dr. Schaer.The outcome of the customer research provides the requirements for the new product concepts. The third phase consists of the external analysis and describes the environment of the company in the Netherlands. In this phase the competitive environment, and the trends and developments within the Dutch food industry are analyzed.This analysis leads to the opportunities and threats for new product concepts. The conclusions of the internal and external analysis and the customer research are summarized and evaluated through a SWOT analysis (phase four). The most relevant factors were selected and compared to each other. The analysis has been used to determine the challenge for which the new product concepts should be developed and leads to the description of the current situation that is used as the starting point for the fifth phase, the idea generation phase.To generate ideas and to come up with new concepts, an adapted ViP approach has been applied.The ViP approach is believed to generate innovative concepts and comprises several steps including different activities. These steps have led to two product concepts with variations, which then have been tested with the consumers through a quantitative research.Therefore, an online questionnaire was developed and published on the Dutch forum for celiacs. Through the analysis it was possible to select one concept which was finally improved based on the outcomes of the quantitative analysis.The last part of the project presents the final product concept and provides advices for the marketing and launch of the product to the company Dr. Schaer.

2. Mansour, Reima. Food security among students at University of Wollongong.

Degree: PhD, 2014, University of Wollongong

Background: Food insecurity occurs whenever the availability of nutritionally adequate and safe foods or the ability to acquire acceptable foods in socially acceptable ways is limited or uncertain. There has been limited research into food security among university students, although one previous study in Queensland reported the prevalence of food insecurity with hunger up to 25% and 46.5% food insecure without hunger using a multi item question, and 12.7% using a single item question to assess food insecurity. This study aimed to investigate the level of food security among university students attending the University of Wollongong (UOW). It investigated the extent of food insecurity among domestic and international students and the factors influencing access to and preparation of foods suitable to meet cultural and religious needs of university students. Design: An online questionnaire was distributed to all the university’s students via UOW student clubs and associations. Food security was measured using both a single item question taken from the Australian National Nutrition Survey (NNS) and multi item questions, based on the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Community Food Security Assessment Toolkit. Students were also asked about purchasing behaviours and cultural requirements of food. The data were assessed using descriptive data analysis, and multiple logistic regression assessed a range of factors associated with reported food insecurity. Conclusion and Recommendations: This study confirms previous studies which show university students are at significant risk of food insecurity, indicating a need to provide better support services to university students. The study provided a comparison of the single item and multi item instruments used, and included recommendations to include questions about special food needs. Information from across the sector should be obtained to determine the extent of food insecurity amongst university students throughout Australia.

3. Corbridge, Tara. Food Security Among Families with Children with Special Health Care Needs.

Degree: 2013, University of Washington

Purpose: In 2012, 16.7 million (20.6%) of U.S. children lived in food-insecure households. Objectives of this study were to examine the association between household food security and presence of children with special health care needs (CSHCN) in a university-based pediatric dental clinic. Methods: Caregivers of patients under 18 years (n=142) at the University of Washington's Center for Pediatric Dentistry were surveyed about food security and CSHCN in their households. Results: Among households with CSHCN, 37% were food-insecure compared to 26% of households without CSHCN. Households with CSHCN with more health consequences had 2.59 higher odds of experiencing food insecurity compared to those without (95% CI 1.17, 5.72, p=0.019). This relationship was not significant after adjusting for covariates. Among households with CSHCN, those that were food-insecure reported significantly higher service use, functional limitations and need or use of mental health counseling in their CSHCN. Conclusions: Screening at dental visits identified a high proportion of families with food insecurity, particularly among some families with CSHCN. Screening for food insecurity may improve identification of needed services for children and their families. Advisors/Committee Members: Johnson, Donna (advisor).
