The National Restaurant Association’s annual “What’s Hot” culinary forecast predicts the food and menu trends for the coming year. For 2015, the NRA surveyed nearly 1,300 professional chefs to find out what the hottest menu trends will be. The link below will take you to a page on restaurant.org’s website where you can select from a menu of trend articles.
Although this forecast is geared to the restaurant industry, there is no doubt that there are many crossover trends that also could play equally important roles within the grocery and specialty food retail segments. It will come as no surprise that concepts like local sourcing, sustainability and nutrition are three key themes that are highlighted throughout the 2015 forecast.
