Emphasis on eco-friendliness
As a global trend, the food industry will also become more dependable on the eco-friendly manufacturing process. The customer is now more conscious of their surroundings and will prefer sustainable protocols, redefined food chain, and urban farming.
Focus on self-care
Besides improving their physical health, the consumer will now be more focused towards their mental well-being too and would add food items that would promote relaxation, slow down aging, and improve their quality of life in their platters. Some examples of such food include leafy greens, nuts, berries, and yogurt.
A return of fruits and vegetables
Due to the recent pandemic and the prominence of improving immunity will lead more consumers towards the fruit and vegetable aisle. If you are also looking to increase your fruit and vegetable intake, the Infographic contains a list of items that will give a boost to your immune system.
Interestingly, the research by the Food People indicates a surge for ‘taste’ and ‘flavorsome’ foods. Japanese cuisine will top the list of culinary delights for the masses while more preference will be given to foods with hot sauces.
