As another year comes to a close, we, the editors of Prepared Foods, like to survey the new food and beverage product landscape to gain a sense of how many important product launches came into being.

Traditionally, the food and beverage industry generates something in the neighborhood of 20,000 new products annually. To be certain, we haven’t taken a hard look at every introduction. However, below is a sample of the range of innovative new food and beverage products that entered the marketplace in 2015.
