World Retail Congress 2014: Authenticity and the conscious consumer

02.10.2014 Online Retail : Sustainability : World Retail Congress 2014

Paris – Authenticity and new consumer values were major themes at the 2014 World Retail Congress. Maxine Bédat, the co-founder of Zady, spoke on a panel about how to connect with consumers through transparency and storytelling.

Launched in 2013, Zady is an e-commerce platform for conscious consumers – people who want to know more about the products they buy and where they come from. For every product on the site, there is a full brand story and a peek behind the curtain at the supply chain.

In the video interview above, LS:N Global spoke to Bédat about the site, its latest project and why the rumour that Millennials are impatient consumers may not be entirely true.
