2017 Forecast: Culinary Trend Tracking Series

Consumer trend drivers arise from core human values. Our values evolve in response to overarching social forces and change coming from society, technology, the economy, the environment and politics. As values evolve, consumer needs evolve, too, influencing what they seek out to meet those needs. Today’s food culture reflects modern values found especially but not exclusively in the Millennial generation. Health & wellness is an additional driver influencing food choices, but of less priority here due to a culinary focus.

This report, 2017 Forecast: Culinary Trend Tracking Series, offers an outlook on the essential culinary trends—the foods, dishes, ingredients and flavors—that Packaged Facts expects to grow in popularity in 2017.
