Visual recipes are becoming increasingly popular on Facebook and Instagram. They are quick how-to videos that make cooking look fun and easy. Even though we know recipes take longer than a few seconds they are very entertaining to watch. Here is one of my favorites by BuzzFeed Tasty:
Meals in a Box
Meals in a box services promise fresh healthy meals at your doorstep. The most recognized meals in a box service are Blue Apron and Hello Fresh. These companies offer prepackaged fresh ingredients that are evenly proportioned along with step by step recipe guides. Meals in a box service offers the consumer an easy way to cook healthy meals in the convenience of their homes.
Consumers are becoming more aware of the foods they eat. They want better quality ingredients such as locally sourced meats & seafood, locally grown produce, and natural ingredients. Chipotle recently became to first food chain to eliminate GMO from their food and you can expect to see more restaurants and food chains follow in Chipotle’s footsteps.
Food + Technology
Big companies like Amazon, Google, and UberEATS are gearing up to offer food delivery services. AmazonFresh will offer next day delivery on groceries and goods from neighborhood shops and Google Express offers a similar service. UberEATS offers the best meals from local favorites within 10 minutes and is offered in major cities like LA, Atlanta, and New York.
