The future of food
November 9, 2022
The food industry is constantly evolving. Food is becoming more sustainable, and consumers are increasingly turning to plant-based food, which is more environmentally friendly. According to a Bloomberg Study, plant-based diets have increased by 300% for Americans in the last 15 years.
Increased health and environmental consciousness drive consumer decisions, meaning food production and manufacturing companies must adapt accordingly. There is not one answer to where the future of food holds. It is striving to balance conventional food products with new technology and developments.
“Being in food innovations means exploring the possibilities of food and learning from old and applying to new with it but in novel ways,” Pitka said. “It is hard to say what the future food will hold, but so much change has happened in the past 10 years that it’s exciting to see what’s on the horizon.”
