What Does Eve Do?

Research and write about the Millennial and Generation Z relationship to food culture
and food policy.

Deepen brand understandings of Millennial and Gen Z wants and needs to generate human-centered solutions and strategic innovations.

Eve Turow Paul uses her many years of empirical research on Millennials' behaviors to advise Fortune 500 companies, start-ups and independent entrepreneurs on how to connect with Millennials and how to re-think product offerings to better meet the needs of this increasingly powerful consumer segment. 

Eve researches the wants and needs of young people around the world.  She investigates the latest research in psychology, sociology, anthropology, speaks to thought-leaders and interviews the people of the Millennial and Gen Z generations to gain a better understanding of their anxieties, hopes and desires. Eve then look at how young people today sooth themselves and fulfill many of their needs through food culture, where young people overwhelmingly spend their discretionary income.

Absolutely the engine of dining, even fine dining now, across the board, is this generation of seemingly food obsessed people who are willing to drive an hour and a half for a sweet taco or save up money— that my generation would have spent on cocaine— to go to Le Bernardin.
— Anthony Bourdain, A Taste of Generation Yum
