Market Insights: A Selection From The Report
Flavors From Around the Globe
2010: Packaged Facts expected that Korean food would be the fastest growing Asian food while Japanese would continue to have a strong presence, especially in relation to udon and other noodles, and the popularity of Vietnamese and Cambodian foods would rise, primarily the result of banh mi sandwiches. All types of Latin foods were expected to grow in popularity, and French food was thought to become more commonplace following the release of the foodie film, Julie & Julia. It was anticipated that American Southern food would become better established throughout the United States due to its strong nostalgic and comforting connotations.
2011: With the number of food trucks on the rise, Packaged Facts anticipates that there will
be a wider assortment of ethnic food available with the specific skills and inclinations of
individual entrepreneurs driving local trends. Food trucks are expected to accelerate
familiarity with the South American cuisines of Columbia, Brazil, Argentina, Peru and
Venezuela and those of specific regions of Mexico, including the Yucatan. In terms of Asian
food, it is predicted that Japanese food will draw the most attention, especially with yakatori,
while Indian and Korean food continue to become better established. Already ubiquitous
Greek food is likely to gain a greater presence at retail with hummus and yogurt while it is anticipated that Moroccan and Turkish food will gain recognition and an entirely new genre
of Scandinavian cuisine could well create a culinary stir.
2010: Last year Packaged Facts predicted that health and wellness would get a lot of attention in anticipation of the Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2010 with sodium reduction being of primary interest. Concern about sugar intake and advertising of empty-calorie foods to children along with more FDA scrutiny of front-of-pack nutrition labels and health claims associated with probiotics was anticipated. Beverages to boost cognitive function and promote relaxation were predicted to gain consumer interest.
2011: One year later, Packaged Facts anticipates that food will get more attention as the foundation of health, and wellness activities will be better integrated into overall lifestyle. Continued focus on sodium reduction is expected to preoccupy packaged foods manufacturers while foodservice scrambles to offer menu items with fewer calories in time to comply with Obamacare legislation mandating its posting. Growing recognition that digestive health is a key link in promoting overall good health will help drive sales of yogurt and other foods containing probiotics, but gluten-free foods will likely show signs of slowing down after a year of unjustifiable, fad-like explosive growth.
Food Desert Showdown - Convenience vs. Drug Stores
Jeff Lenard, Vice President of communications for the National Association of Convenience Stores commented, “Food presents some opportunities. We’re looking to take the lead on providing healthier options in areas that are considered food deserts.” Packaged Facts believes that at least two challenges must be addressed: Creating the physical space in many convenience stores to display produce, and creating the desire on the part of residents to purchase and incorporate healthier foods, including fresh fruits and vegetables, into their diets. The price of fresh produce relative to other food options must also be taken into account along with the ability for these Americans to tap into government assistance programs where they shop for food.
Packaged Facts anticipates that drug stores will act more quickly and be more successful than
convenience stores in exploiting the opportunity to address America’s food deserts. The
nation’s largest drugstore chain, Walgreens, expanded the food sections of 10 Chicago stores
in areas considered to be food deserts and they now contain more than 750 new food items...
Health, Budget Concerns Will Drive Food Flavor and Ingredient Market in 2011
New York, January 11, 2011 — Consumer thriftiness and health-consciousness will continue to exert a notable influence over the food and beverage ingredient and flavor trends to emerge in 2011, according to Food Flavors and Ingredients Outlook 2011, the eighth edition of the annual series by market research publisher Packaged Facts.
"Heading into 2011, consumers are growing evermore weary of economic and nutritional health gloom and doom. Many have spent the last few years reinventing their financial and employment lives, and are now starting to focus more emphasis on their overall wellbeing and happiness in a way that is reflective of their values, being more pragmatic and deliberate in making decisions about how to spend both their time and their resources," says Don Montuori, publisher of Packaged Facts.
Packaged Facts believes food marketers, from the retail and foodservice sectors, will take that consumer mindset to heart in 2011. Some of the key trends Packaged Facts forecasts to hit it big in 2001 are:
