Lynn Dornblaser, Mintel’s Director of Innovation and Insight, will be speaking on Mintel’s 2018 Food and Drink Trends at this year’s Western New York IFT Food Industry Expo. More details on the event’s website here and Lynn’s presentation below:

Mintel’s 2018 Global Food & Drink Trends are the result of collaboration between 60 of Mintel’s expert analysts in more than one dozen countries around the world. The concepts reflect current consumer themes including trust, self-care, stress, individuality and sustainability. The trends also incorporate elements that are evolutions of Mintel’s 2016 and 2017 Global Food & Drink Trend predictions, which continue to be significant influences in many categories and countries. To further showcase the relevance of the five future-looking trends, our analyst insights have been supported by evidence gathered from Mintel’s proprietary consumer research, innovative developments observed by Mintel’s expert team of trend spotters and international food and drink products collected in Mintel’s Global New Products Database (GNPD).
These five trends for 2018 will be explored in this presentation:

  • Full Disclosure
  • Self-Fulfilling Practices
  • New Sensations
  • Preferential Treatment
  • Science Fare
