Organic, Healthy Foods Trends Growing


CHICAGO—The NPD Group released its new report, “A Look into The Future of Eating,” which forecasts “better for you” foods, such as organic and light or low-calorie foods and beverages, will be among the fastest-growing food trends over the next decade.

Restaurant meals eaten at home and appetizers eaten as in-home main meals also are expected to be among the fastest-growing food trends.

The report provides a 10-year forecast of eating trends based on generational influences, population and trend momentum, and covers a broad spectrum of food and beverage categories, preparation methods, meal situations and other food-related behaviors.
