INGREDIENT AND DINING-OUT TRENDS AROUND THE WORLD

AROUND THE WORLD

• Four macroenvironmental trends are contributing to an increased focus on health and wellness: an aging global population; rising chronic-disease rates; a rise in self-care, treatment and prevention; and increasingly educated and connected consumers.
• Food sensitivities also are influencing food preferences. More than one-third (36%) of global survey respondents say they have an allergy or intolerance to one or more foods, and retail sales data has shown strong growth for products catering to food sensitivities in the U.K., Germany and the U.S.
• Nearly two-thirds of global respondents (64%) say they follow a diet that limits or prohibits consumption of some foods or ingredients, with response rates in Africa/Middle East (84%) and Asia-Pacific (72%) higher than average.
• Retail sales data shows that consumers are cutting back on certain foods that are typically high in fat, sugar or sodium, but there remains a place for indulgences in consumers’ diets, particularly more healthful treats.
• Consumers are adopting a back-to-basics mind-set, focusing on simple ingredients and fewer processed foods. More than half of consumers say they’re avoiding artificial ingredients, hormones or antibiotics, genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and bisphenol A (BPA).
• There is a clear opportunity to better serve consumers’ dietary needs. Among respondents who say they have a food sensitivity or follow a special diet, fewer than half (45%) believe their needs are being fully met by current product offerings.

Almost anyone you ask will tell you that eating a healthful diet is important—a sentiment that isn’t new. So why is there a seemingly heightened focus on clean eating? A contributing factor is the convergence of several macroenvironmental forces:
• Global graying. The world’s population is aging rapidly (though at a slower rate in some parts of the world, including Africa and parts of Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean) and living longer. The U.S. Census Bureau predicts that over the next 35 years, the growth of the world’s older population will outpace that of the younger population.
• Chronically ailing. Chronic diseases, including cardiovascular disease, Type 2 diabetes, respiratory diseases and cancer, are the leading causes of death and disability worldwide, and incidences are on the rise globally. According to the World Health Organization,
