[WEBINAR] Food transparency and simplified ingredient lists: Trends and tips for understanding the "clean" eating movement

Publication Type:

Published / Updated:
June 23, 2016
The National Restaurant Association's annual food service forecast, called "What's Hot," listed "natural ingredients/minimally processed food" as one of its top five culinary trends in 2015 and 2016. 
The demand for a pared down ingredient list is being influenced by millennials and Generation Z, who crave authenticity and transparency. These generations of consumers will continue to drive consumption growth in the areas of fresh ingredients and more healthful meal preparations.
Providing simplified ingredient lists is a trend at the point of no return.
In this webinar restaurant operators will learn: 
  • The importance of meeting the growing need for food transparency from the consumers' perspective. 
  • Top and fast-growing "clean" keywords to incorporate on restaurant menus.
  • Clarifying consumer perceptions of "clean” keywords. 
  • Organic and non-GMO trend updates.
