Description

Discover the latest global trends and innovations across the table sauces, seasonings and oils markets. Our forward looking report identifies areas which are evolving, consumer attitudes and important advances expected across the next five years and beyond.

Where we are now

Healthy eating was trending pre-COVID-19 but the pandemic saw a renewed consumer focus on healthy eating. Many table sauces had already evolved to remove processed ingredients but launches saw brands targeting higher up the hierarchy of health needs via gut health and all-natural ingredient claims.

In the next two years

The downturn has created a hyper-stressful world. The trend for simplicity will resurface and brands will find ways to cut complexity. Sustainability will return as brands tell a human story. The pandemic boosted the link between ingredients and wellness. Brands will innovate with ingredients which offer flavour and a mood halo.

In five years and beyond

Brands will stretch into wellbeing via fortified table sauces. A focus on sustainability will see table sauces offer recycled ocean plastic packs – as they close the gap versus homecare and soft drinks. Food science is likely to have perfected lab-grown meats and table sauces will evolve to complement new their tastes and textures.
