As the world changes, food trends change as well. Find out how the industry captures these emerging food trends and serves them on grocery shelves and e-grocery screens. 

Today, consumers are faced with evolving technologies, demographic shifts, climate change and economic uncertainties. Constant change is nothing new, but what makes it challenging is the speed of it. Change is particularly salient in people’s diets.

Everyone has a relationship to food, every day, all their lives – a relationship in which their dreams, lifestyle, heritage, status and even their fears are often expressed. New needs are driving new food trends, diets and groups that people choose to belong to. Some buzz words on everybody’s lips are: flexitarian, paleo, ketogenic, high-in-protein and superfood ingredients. Where did these food trends come from?

“The future is already here, it’s just not evenly spread”, says William Gibson, the American-Canadian speculative fiction writer. In this webinar, the featured speaker will share a glimpse of that future through both global emerging food trends and facts captured by Tetra Pak in partnership with IPSOS, as well as real-life illustrations on how these trends are turning into new products, new packaging and food offers.


Thierry Gihan, Director, Marketing and Food Industry Business Intelligence, Tetra Pak
