The Future of Ingredients 2023 is a global market report that covers the latest innovations and consumer trends across the global food ingredients market in 2023. Our global future of ingredients market report identifies evolving areas, consumer attitudes, and important advances expected across regions like EMEA, APAC, and LATAM over the next five years and beyond.


Global Food Ingredients Market Outlook

The agricultural revolution of the 21st century is being propelled by a need to solve consequential problems facing food production. Supply chain disruption brought on by climate change and global conflicts will push innovators to turn to science rather than nature for food sustainability and security.

However, as tech companies, including food tech, are refocusing in response to the current economic situation, cost-cutting measures may slow innovation in the short term.

  • 56% of adults in Canada are concerned about food waste when purchasing food and drinks in stores

Ingredients Market and Trends in the Next Two Years

Economic pressures will drive consumers to seek out products that keep them healthy – not only physically, but also financially.

Ultra-processed foods will continue to be scrutinised, a move that is an extension of the ongoing clean label movement. However, at the same time there will be a push to reduce food waste and nutrition loss.

  • 83% of Spanish consumers aged 45-64 agree that fibre can support digestive health.
  • 71% of Chinese consumers agree that diet therapy is more effective in helping them to age healthily than medicine or supplements.

The Future of Ingredients in Five Years and Beyond

In the long term, technology will be seen as an important tool for innovation and even survival. Consumers are aware of the link between food production and the planet’s health, with many acknowledging that the climate crisis will affect what food they buy in the future.

As predicted by Mintel in 2020, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is playing a bigger role in the future of ingredients innovation. Ingredient companies and food manufacturers are using AI to uncover novel ingredients and solutions to bring healthier and more sustainable foods to market with consumer preferences in mind.
