Inspiring great meals from prepared foods since 1924

Food trends for 2020

February 5th, 2020

Pea Protein

As the worlds of meal smoothiesand plant-based lifestyles collide, you’re going to see pea protein offered up in place of powders like whey and collagen, both of which are derived from animal sources. More and more brands will take a cue from trendsetters and add the protein powerhouse to faux meat alternatives and vegan cheeses.

Biltong

Biltong, which hails from South Africa, is a form of dried, cured meat. But unlike jerky that’s cooked and dried out on racks in the oven, biltong is hung to be naturally air-dried. Often containing no sugar and aligning with paleo and keto lifestyles.

Fast Food Breakfast

If 2019 was the year fast food outlets boosted their plant-based offerings, 2020 will be the year they diversify their breakfast options. Almost every single major chain is putting out new breakfast options.

Pinsa

It’s a century-old Roman cooking method that produces lighter, fluffier, and marginally healthier pizza (it’s easier to digest due to the rice, soy, and wheat flours used).

Ghost Kitchens

In short, where restaurants strip the setting of any in-house dining options, creating a large commercial space that can churn out more food. This results in delivery- or pick-up-only restaurants.

Flexitarianism

Veganism is polarising. Even vegetarianism can be. That’s why there is an uptick in people who call themselves flexitarians, aka those who follow a largely plant-based diet but also eat meat and animal byproducts on occasion. Nielsen reports 37% of the people purchasing meat alternatives are people who identify as such. Plenty more trends that are already popular with the veg/flexi set, like Meatless Monday and meat-free fast food alternatives.
