Food Trends 2013
The food industry pundits have been busy making their predictions for the coming year
A fairly mixed bag of predictions for 2013 against a background of little or no overall growth in the UK economy.
Despite the flat economic outlook, pundits from Leatherhead Food Research and Food Navigator predicted continuing interest in ‘natural’ ‘free from’ and ‘functional’ foods, with ‘ethics’ and ‘sustainability’ fighting their way back onto the consumer agenda.
And little doubt that rising food prices will be a key issue on the industry agenda in 2013, with bread, potatoes, milk, pork and bacon leading the upward charge.
All told, an interesting year in prospect!
