business news in context, analysis with attitude

CNN looks at the coming likely food trends…

• Consumers are expected to focus on “a healthy balance of carbs and calories,” as opposed to extreme diet choices.

• There is expected to be a real focus on products containing whole grain fiber.

• Functional foods with specific health benefits are likely to become extremely popular.

• Organics are expected to develop greater mass-market appeal.

• More products are likely to be developed specifically for baby boomers, with easier to open packaging, easier to read labels, and ingredients that cater to their specific health issues.
KC's View:
It is sort of funny that baby boomers are looking for easy to open packaging, since it was just a few years ago that we were demanding packages that were hard to open so our young kids couldn’t get into them.
