Top 5 2018 Food Trends
The way that we eat is constantly evolving, and 2018 will prove to be no different, as how, what and when we eat becomes more aligned with our lifestyles. Here are the top 5 food trends we’re behind in 2018!
1. Plant based diets
The hard truth is that livestock production is one of the most environmentally taxing sectors on the planets, with many experts agreeing that cows create more CO2 than cars. This is just one of many reasons people are choosing veganism as a way of life. The health benefits of such a choice are clear, as studies indicate a plant based diet may be instrumental in decreasing the risk of Type 2 Diabetes, Heart Disease and other life threatening sicknesses

2. The 4th meal
The age of “three meals a day” is coming to an end. We’ve all been stuck clockwatching between meals, denying ourselves a bite in favour of waiting for “the right time to eat”. But modern life doesn’t agree with that. If you’ve got a meeting during lunch or a strenuous gym class after work, it makes sense to top up with a strategic meal.
3. Deliciously colourful food
Ingredients like charcoal, beetroot and black berries will continue adding surprising shades to the palette of dishes, but it’s not just aesthetic. Although brightly-coloured food is great at racking up likes in Instagram, many natural food colourants also have many health benefits.
These days, more and more people are taking notice of what’s said on food labelling. And as phrases like “Organic”, “Free Range” and “Non-GMO” become more commonly used, the scrutiny that these terms are under increases too. That’s why food manufacturers and retailers are increasingly making moves to add a level of transparency and honesty to their offerings. We think that this is a great step in the right direction.
5. Jars, bowls, cups & cones
Eating food is no longer something reserved for tables. As our lives become wireless and we’re constantly on the go, we demand food that can keep up. That’s why food packaging will keep moving towards portability in 2018.
