From post-Arabica coffee to umami-flavoured mould: Retail predictions 2022
What major trends should we expect to see on shelf this coming year? According to trend forecaster WGSN, they all reflect consumer focus on sustainability – which remains ‘top of mind’.
“Serious consumer concerns are driving the 2022 top trends, including global warming and sustainability impacts on our food supply, and an urgent need for more diversity, inclusivity and respect in the food world,” said Kara Nielsen, WGSN’s Director of Food & Drink.
“Food makers and product developers need to address these issues while also realising how savvy eaters are about the benefits food ingredients like koji and prebiotics bring to the table.”
