The big stories

The growing awareness of mental health and wellbeing has helped boost their significance among consumers. Interest in holistic health made gut wellness paramount in 2019, with its broad health potentials. Rising cases of diabetes create opportunities for low-sugar and high-fibre food and drink, and low-calorie or low-carb diet plans.

In the next two years

Sustainability abounds in future innovations, with sustainable nutrition and practices at the top of people and brands' minds. Shortfalls of nutrition and naturalness of plant-based diets will be a priority for brands. Claims that combat other factors that may harm health, such as anti-pollution, oral and eye health, will emerge.

In five years and beyond

Technology-driven food supply chains are set to emerge in the future. Digitalisation will be the key for fresher, cleaner and safer foods. Food and agri-tech investments will continue to help deliver more healthy, sustainable food systems. Adopting heritage diets will weave authentic, simple and ‘healthy-ageing’ food and drink.
