Food and drink trends
In line with the environmental concerns of consumers, restaurants need to ensure that the environment, sustainability and health is a focus of their menus. Healthy food is certainly back in a big way in 2023.
Healthy juices and smoothies
According to the Global Fruit Juice Market trends report, The global fruit juice market reached a value of US$ 141 Billion in 2021 and the market is expected to reach US$ 182 Billion by 2027. The consumption of soft drinks, such as colas and flavoured sodas, is reducing globally as they have high sugar content, artificial colouring, phosphoric acid, artificial sweeteners, and caffeine which can cause negative effects on the human body. Owing to this, a large number of consumers are shifting from carbonated drinks towards natural fruit juices.
Plant-based foods will continue to take the lead in 2023 driven by millennials. However, also big on the list of food trends for 2023 are mushrooms and faux fish. The New York Times declared mushrooms as the ”2022 ingredient of the Year”. They provide a range of health benefits and play the main role in people’s favorite foods – pasta, pizza and even desserts. Mushrooms are predicted to become even more popular in the coming years.
