The food production process has become an important piece of information for today’s consumers.
Social networks have become the best window for brands and companies to show themselves as they are to their consumers.
In the past, the production process of many products was considered a secret for consumers, but with the arrival of the internet and social networks, this type of information has become a content widely seen by Internet users. This is the case of a TikTok content creator who shared the process of the Atún Dolores brand in each of its factories.
The production process is defined, according to Cetys Universidad, as “the set of various steps to which the raw material is subjected to transform it, in order to produce a product for sale”. This process is very attractive to consumers that increasingly require brands to be more transparent with the information they offer.
