Garden and Grove: Culinary Trend Tracking Series
Freshness is officially at the forefront of food trends. More than non-GMO, more than local, organic, or natural, more even than low price, consumers value freshness in food—and nothing says freshness like garden-fresh vegetables or fruit. This fandom for freshness extends to Millennials, further securing the status of freshness at the center of culinary trends.
