Summary

Over the last five years, consumer confidence about brand/company has declined and doubts have been cast on industry integrity. Misleading and exaggerated health claims, ethical issues, and health concerns about products and associated ingredients are the major reasons behind the depleting trust and questionable integrity. Organizations are skeptical about potential damage to their brand/company by news reports and social media, despite the fact that news stories have helped to enhance the reputation of their brand/company and will continue to do so. A Lack of social media presence is unfavorable for a brand/company, as the channel helps to distribute information to a larger customer base in an effective manner; however, faster communication through social media could cause an escalation in 'online PR disasters, and trust/health issues are easily exaggerated on social media.
