2019 Food & Beverage Trends
We love food, so much that we study it even when we don’t have to.
We’ve partnered with the Institute of Culinary Education the past 10 years to track food trends and the why’s behind them. Each year it becomes clearer that food is bigger than taste and health; it’s fundamental to our identity and values. Food tells us what’s happening in technology, social and environmental responsibility, wellness and culture.
A few of this year’s trends include:
From AI to robotics, even our beer is getting more high-tech.
CBD is everywhere, but look out for adaptogens on the rise.
We are seeing high levels of activism across the world, and the F&B industry has not gone unscathed.
Being “extra” is the key here, from artisanal junk food to dispensing with boundaries.
We’d love to present these trends to you and discuss the implications for your business.
