A leading flavor supplier, T. Hasegawa, knows many consumers have shifted a larger share of their food budget from foodservice to retail—opting to harness cooking skills over restaurants. In addition to consumers being cautious with spending, 34% of consumers will only return to a restaurant once there is a vaccine.
Looking at consumer packaged goods flavor innovation during the past year, there’s been an increased emphasis on classic and nostalgic flavors, particularly within the desserts and bakery categories.
Elsewhere, chili pepper has continued to trend in sauces and snacks, along with natural flavors that can offer wellness properties (both mental and physical).
