Food for Thought: Food and drink trends 2020

2019 was a year of attention-grabbing launches, pop-ups and activations. Remember that sausage roll? The Bank of Ice Cream? How about the arrival of bug protein? Brands were looking to capture the eyeballs – and pounds – of consumers across the country, and the year ahead will prove no different. Our food & drink specialist team dug out their crystal ball to see what 2020 might have in store for us.

In addition to reading the night’s skies, we enlisted the expertise of leaders, trendsetters, opinion makers and influencers in the food and drink industry. We probed them on consumer behaviour trends, who or what shapes influence, as well as convincing them to share the new tastes and experiences we can expect to see from brands across the year.
