Botanical Branding Elements of nature are added to packaging designs to create a more organic feel Implications - Straying away from the cold and minimalist features of mass-produced products, brands are turning to more organic and nature-inspired packaging designs. Utilizing patterns and colors that reference the blossoming of flowers, these branding techniques offer a connection to the raw and untouched elements of the outdoors.

Intentionally Unappetizing A fixation on the eating experience sparks a focus on shocking cuisine Implications - Consumers aren't simply looking for something delicious to eat, but a story to tell afterward. As foodie culture becomes ubiquitous, the unappetizing is becoming a focus for consumers craving an experience that's both satisfying for their palate and worthy of being shared on social media.

Accelerated Homemade Specialty appliances used to make store-bought goods offer consumer control Implications - Consumers often opt for the convenience of buying a ready-made product, but as choices become overwhelming and costs inflate, a growing number are taking the DIY approach with specialty appliances.

Regional Branding Brands use tradition-inspired products to bond with foreign markets Implications - Global companies are using special edition products, created to celebrate regional holidays, to connect with new markets. Helping push the idea that brands not only support but actually participate in traditions native to these areas, this approach is an effective strategy that provides a sense of familiarity to new consumers.

Sweetened Protein The health wave results in protein for all meals Implications - As weight-consciousness grows to include fitness and strength training, protein takes center stage. Typically limited to heavy meats and cheeses, protein-rich foods that are lighter are welcomed into the health sphere to satiate all tastes. This shows a more detailed approach to dieting that takes more than caloric intake into consideration.
