Inspiring great meals from prepared foods since 1924

Food trends for 2017

January 16th, 2017

A few trends which have caught our eye and grabbed the attention of our new product development team here at Roberts of Port Dinorwic:

Dude Food episode 2 – this awesome category is evolving, traditionally heavy on the meat with monster flavours we now see vegetarian bases appearing. Still retaining its indulgent character!

Age is more than just a number – with ageing being the reserve of beef it’s now aged chicken, fish and butter; some great flavours to be expected.

Chefs in the home – with the ease of access to high-tech cooking equipment and every tv channel having “celebrity” chefs sharing their secrets every home now has a chef in the kitchen with ease. It just means we in the industry need to keep raising our game and politely showing cheffing isn’t something which can be learnt in a weekend.
