Denver, Colorado (July 6, 2010) – Concept Catalysts, Inc. in conjunction with iModerate Research Technologies announced today the launch of BeveragePulse.com.

BeveragePulse.com was created to address the impact on shopping behavior and consumer preferences within the packaged beverage industry as consumer concerns for the environment, obesity, health and economic hardships evolve.

Using a hybrid combination of quantitative and qualitative research, BeveragePulse.com will provide in-depth reports containing relevant, high quality and affordable insight into what drives consumer purchase and consumption of packaged beverages. Understanding these issues will help businesses better prepare to serve their customers in the future.

Bob Falkenberg, president of Concept Catalyst says, “We are excited to furnish timely and relevant consumer information for our stakeholders. Our intent is to quantify and provide a deeper understanding of relevant packaged beverage issues as well as do some ‘myth busting’ along the way. You may not always hear what you want to hear about your package or beverage; our commitment is to provide the unbiased facts to a broad range of clients.”

The first released report, available free of charge at BeveragePulse.com, addresses consumer perceptions of environmental issues and the impact on packaged beverage purchases and consumption. The topic is receiving attention from the media, the beverage industry, retailers, and consumers. Subsequent reports for purchase will address further pertinent issues for the industry and will be published regularly.
