THE FORECASTS and projections are coming in. Mintel recently released a report on what it sees will be the top three trends for the next year and beyond – an assessment of how sustainability, health and wellness, and convenience continue to influence movements in the F&B industry.
For those interested in U.S. retail, Whole Foods Market also came up with its top 10 F&B predictions.
