The Trends

The 6 hottest trends that we will see entering our industry will change what businesses have to offer and how they work. We can see that Gen Z and the Millennials have the most control over the upcoming trends, with the older generation wanting to see classic foods like fish and chips, whilst the younger generation wants focus on the likes of veganism and plant-based diets. Businesses are becoming more eco-friendly, and focused on health and wellness as the interest in feeling fit and healthy has taken off rapidly across all generations. Menus will have a frequent change as the public feel that lack of change is boring for menus; driven by both Gen Z and Millennials who are in search for foods to entice their exotic taste buds. 42% of consumers say that pubs and bars have lost their ‘community spirit’ due to technology and the digital world we now live in. Not only this, we have a fast paced world where our lives just don’t stop! Due to this, the rise of food-to-go has increased phenomenally, it has been said that this market will be worth £23.5 billion by 2022!
