A Taste of Things to Come: The Future of Food (in partnership with the Almond Board of California)

18 October 2021 10:10 - 10:40

We adapt our eating habits depending on our location, culture, social environment and the time we live in. And we are living in unprecedented times. We are much more health conscious, concerned for our planet and aware of what we consume, but we are still as aspirational as ever. Trends matter, and what we eat doesn’t escape this vortex.

As we look towards such an unknown future landscape, it’s essential that manufacturers and product developers capitalise on shifting demand, not just thinking about the latest fads but more about what underpins much larger trends, and how to innovate for a new future.

In this session, Food Futurologist, Dr Morgaine Gaye, will outline some of the future trends which we can expect to see (and taste) in the years ahead. Armed with insights on these upcoming trends, the session will provide inspiration on how key ingredients like almonds can support developers in tailoring innovation to meet the shifting demand.
