Foods Trends of 2016

With 2017 just around the corner, there’s a lot of talk about new food trends. But what about the trends we were all hungry for in 2016?

Here’s a look at three of the most notable ones!

1. Food delivery – the year food came to you

Big names like Uber, Amazon or Facebook amped up their capabilities to either offer or facilitate food delivery services through their apps.

2. Food taxes – the confirmation of a fiscal health trend!

There are already seven cities in the U.S. that have passed legislation to tax sugary drinks. Now, a debate over the health and money benefits of a meat tax has started gaining momentum.

3. Food waste awareness – a move in the right direction!

160 Billion pounds of food go wasted each year in the U.S.. That shocking number has sparked inspiring initiatives around the world, from start-ups coming up with machines to reconvert waste, to restaurants embracing the ‘no waste’ model!
