Foodies beware! SIAL 2016 and top food trends

Wonderful gastronomic experiences usually leave everyone on cloud number nine. That’s why we’re over the moon to be building some huge stands at SIAL 2016 in Paris.

SIAL will 7,000 companies from more than 100 countries and see them present their products to retail and foodservice professionals. This 5 day show, starting October 16th, will see many food related products from food to equipment.

It’s no secret that the food industry is evolving. Look a the difference between the food that was served 20-30 years ago and the food that is served today.To gear up for the show, we decided to look into some of the year’s top food trends. Reference

  1. Is the world getting healthier? In the last five years pasta sales dropped by 6% in the USA, 8% in Australia, 13% in Europe … 25% in Italy.
  2. Sandwich of the year: fried chicken
  3. Snacking increased 47% from 2010 to 2014. Good old snackers are leaving sweet for savoury and shifting from high-carb to nutrient dense high-protein indulgent snacks. Sour is also replacing sweet and plant based protein snacks are gaining popularity, particularly amongst millenials.
  4. Good-for-you, good-for-the-earth packaged snacks are getting commanding space on supermarket endcaps … often near the fresh vegetable aisle … suggesting that consumers will pay premium prices for products that cover both bases.
  5. Savoury yoghurts are getting popular
  6. there is a growing consumer interest in the health-enhancing role of specific foods, or what experts call “functional foods.” (Ref)
  7. Brands are “healthifying” products and their positioning In response, some brands are trying to “healthify” foods by adding functional ingredients. (Ref)

Dr. Frank Lipman, the founder of Eleven Eleven Wellness Center in Manhattan points to digital as a major catalyst for our growing health food fixation. “There’s no question it’s coming from the web,” says Lipman. Reference
