The Future of Food – 9 Trends to Watch Towards 2030

The food sector will face numerous challenges in the coming decade. From the race to develop plant-based meat substitutes to the power of AI-enabled personalized nutrition, disruptive drivers of change are just around the corner, waiting to break through.

What will the future of food look like in 2030? From our research in the field, our Rohrbeck Heger foresight analyst team has picked its favorite 9 drivers of change for the food sector to watch over the next 10 years. Whether they will all come to be remains to be seen, but quite a few of them will fundamentally change the way we eat and how food businesses operate. This report outlines nine trends in total, divided into 3 parts:

  • Our 5 most surprising trends to watch
  • 3 “Question Marks”– something’s brewing, but it’s unclear how these will play out
  • 1 “Dark Horse” – although less likely to break out in the next decade, this trend will have a tremendous impact once it does.

If this has whetted your appetite, join us on June 23rd, 2021, for our upcoming online trend assessment workshop on drivers of change in the food industry!
