What you need to know
The big stories
Vegan innovators should implement 'comfort' food options to satisfy the growing flexitarian consumer. Meanwhile, free-from (eg gluten-free) has developed to target the FODMAP diet, helping consumers with irritable bowel syndrome. Finally, private label innovators are upping their game to target emerging cuisines and seasonality.
In the next two years
Ramen stocks and sauces can help consumers to bring the popular foodservice dish to the home. Sauce brands should support parents to boost their kids' cookery skills and prepare them for later life. Lastly, pasta sauces should react to consumer demand for simple ingredient lists, with traditional, herbal and light sauces.
In five years and beyond
The future of shopping will become increasingly automated and rely on direct sales. Brands will need a strong online presence to succeed, with new apps, social media sites and digital 'bricks & mortar' stores offering new shopping opportunities.
