It looks as though millennials are shaping the food industry. It turned out from the studies that people aged 18-34 were influenced by the food culture around them. That will no doubt shape the food industry for years to come. A lot of young people love to explore culture through food.
- To craft the survey, the Y-Pulse team engaged with foodservice experts who regularly participate in trends surveys, but also included creative experts who work in important lifestyle industries such as fashion, architecture and fine arts.
- Influential Foodie Culture—Today’s food-centric culture has given rise to food halls, fancy food emporiums and food festivals that offer fully immersive experiences.
- Foodservice operators will see a continuation of this trend, both in dining experience and innovation in global flavors.
“In a study examining dining experiences of millennial consumers (18 to 34 year olds), Y-Pulse was able to dig deep into what drives the same consumer to very different types of food experiences outside the home.”
