A recent study has unveiled a striking revelation: over a third of global consumers are now inclined to invest extra for sustainability, mirroring the surge in demand for eco-conscious alternatives. Initially, consumers begin by considering eco-friendly products, but this initial consideration has evolved into a profound transformation. A new phenomenon has emerged where purchase decisions are now predicated upon personal values and principles. This emerging trend, coined as Ethical Consumerism, is propelled by a variety of factors, including fair trade, eradicating child labor, and environmental concerns. With this seismic shift in consumer behavior, brands are facing a critical challenge. The increasing adoption of Ethical Consumerism is compelling brands to provide products that align with these conscientious preferences. The question that surfaces is: How can brands effectively address this challenge and adapt their strategies to meet the demands of this new consumer behavior?
Navigating this new consumer behavior requires more than a unique resolution to meet consumer’s concerns. Through KoltiTrace SHOP, we believe that providing digital e-commerce for brands that focus on delivering ethical production and sustainable products is essential to tackling this challenge. By doing this, we empower local Indonesian brands by extending their products’ distribution and supporting their producers’ livelihoods with sustainable income opportunities in the expansive market. Our approach is deeply integrated into KoltiTrace MIS, Koltiva's integrated ecosystem, ensuring traceability from seed to table.
