Tyson Predicts 2019 Food Trends

Tyson Foods, the largest U.S. food company, is offering up its predictions for food trends next year. Noting that years past have led to avocado toast, and others, including the poke bowl in 2018, Tyson says it takes “enormous pride and responsibility in helping shape and identify the next wave of culinary trends.” For 2019, while no specific dish or item is identified, Tyson says there are several key trends to focus on. Those include personalized foods to promote health and beauty, transparent food production, adding more proteins in more forms, harnessing the power of smart technology and food, creating food as a form of self-expression and a fusion of global cuisines at home. This year, to identify the next top food trends, the company created the Tyson Trendtellers Council, made up of a dozen of the company’s top food thinkers and innovators.
