The Future of Cooking/Pasta Sauces and Stocks: 2020

Key points included

  • As nature intended
  • Gourmet creations at home
  • Vegan sauces are well planted

The big stories

Naturalness continues to be a key innovation strategy for sauce brands. Consumers are also looking for ways to replicate the restaurant experience at home. Veganism has stepped up its game in the sauce space with higher-quality plant-based formulations.

In the next two years

Authentic dishes from Japanese, Mexican and Caribbean cuisines are set to make an impact. Collaboration will be essential to succeed in the future. Sauce brands will find new ways to innovate with competitors, other brands and restaurants. Lighter meal choices will inspire innovation but methods will be different in the East and West.

In five years and beyond

The fusion of mainstream DNA testing with 3D printing technology could be a revolution over the next decade. Consumers will be able to design their own sauces at home, not only flavoured by their favourite brands but also personally designed formulations based on their own diets.

Consumers are scrutinising labels and ingredients more to ensure they meet health and sustainability demands. Cooking and pasta sauces are fighting the scepticism with all-natural and simple product formulations. Edward Bergen
