As well as an 18-year summary, it provides the key take outs and learnings, and influences for the future. Using unique trend archives, The Food People have mapped the finer detail of the food and drink timeline from 2006 to 2023 – key products, services, restaurants, chefs, flavours, ingredients, colours, global events, diets, tech, politics, awards… and much more!

From information gathered over the last 18 years, there have been seismic changes in how we produce, purchase, and consume food & drink. With the world more connected than at any other time in history, the changes of the next 18 years will only become bolder and swifter.

For 18 years, The Food People have been rooted in their intent to shift the future of food & drink, by harnessing the power of trends and foresight. They have meticulously and rigorously mapped food and drink trends around the globe, which has enabled them to write this book.

This e-Book serves a reference point of key markers in the way that the food & drink landscape has evolved. It covers food & drink from many perspectives – retail products, hospitality, technology, chefs, social media influencers, cuisines, ingredients and more. It looks at the bigger picture, too, taking into account social, cultural, political, economic and climate events from around the world – as this influence the way we eat and drink.

Embracing climate-smart eating stands as one of the most impactful trends both now and for the future. We are passionately optimistic about our shared mission with The Food People to create a more sustainable future for food.
