Consumer preferences for food and beverage products are experiencing significant shifts in nature and demand as companies rapidly innovate to serve an increasingly health-conscious market. Natural ingredients, removal of chemical or synthetic elements, and the 'homemade' sentiment will all continue to play a key role in food and beverage product development.
