About the Vegetable Report

The Vegetable Trend Report examines food trends popular with consumers, with a focus on raw foods, hydroponic vegetables, healthy snacks and DIY recipes. The health benefits from fruits, salads, green vegetables and organic produce is causing a shift in consumer eating habits and food choices. We examine how meals like gourmet vegetable soup and homemade vegetable juice are becoming staples in today’s diets. We explore different consumer options, like farmer’s markets, health food stores and grocers like Whole Foods and Planet Organic. Finally, our research delves into the world of vegetarianism and looks at how that lifestyle is affecting fast food chains such as McDonald’s and Tim Horton’s.

Who It's For

From farmers to global food chain conglomerates, our research will benefit anyone in the food and hospitality industries looking for concise consumer insight to help with business strategy and enhancing product quality and service. However, this research will also be beneficial to health care workers like dietitians and nutritionists seeking more information about the eating and dieting habits of today’s consumers.
