Happy New Year!

Let’s hope that, as the name suggests, 2020 will be a year of perfect vision. If 2019 was a year of change, 2020 will be a consolidation of those changes, a reworking of ideas, old and new, and an exploration into a new way of doing things. The food industry has been somewhat stuck in a rut for the last decade or so – 2020 could be the year we see some truly visionary new ingredients, a raft of exciting, fresh recipes and an acceptance of different ways of eating.

Here are my predictions:

As veganism becomes more mainstream, there will be an emphasis on plant-based proteins and dairy-free ingredients; if 2019 was the year of plastic awareness, 2020 will be the year of developing plastic-free alternatives in the food industry; awareness of alcohol consumption reached a critical point in 2019 so expect a surge of non or low-alcohol drinks to flood the market; and as sugar was public enemy number one last year, 2020 will be the year of searching for truly natural sweeteners.

I may be right, I may be wrong, but what better way to start the new year than full of positivity and optimism for the future.
