Curious about Hispanics' Culture and Community and how brands are working to reach Hispanic consumers?

From the Mintel report Hispanics' Culture and Community U.S. March 2020:

"As Hispanics are proud of their heritage, and they see Hispanic culture influencing their groups and communities, brands may benefit from not looking at Hispanics separately from the mainstream. Hispanics can feel validated if they see the mixed culture they see in their groups also reflected in the content they are exposed to."
