Get ready to chow down, because 2023 is cooking up a storm of tasty food trends! As the food biz is always changing, this year is set to be a smorgasbord of exciting new flavors.

The industry is whipping up fresh, out-of-the-box dishes and ideas as folks become more health-savvy and environmentally conscious. Here are a few hot trends to keep your eye on in the coming year.:

Plant-based Options

In recent years, plant-based meat alternatives have been growing like weeds, and 2023 is shaping up to be another banner year for this trend.

As people become more health-conscious and environmentally friendly, they are demanding more plant-based options.

You can expect to see more meatless burgers and sausages popping up in grocery stores and restaurants, as well as alternative milk options like almond and soy milk becoming more commonplace.

So, get ready to sink your teeth into a veggie burger, as the trend of eating more plants shows no signs of slowing down!

Sustainable Seafood

As people become more mindful of how their seafood choices affect the environment, they're demanding more sustainable options.

So, get ready for a wave of responsibly-sourced and certified seafood options like the ones endorsed by organizations such as the Marine Stewardship Council and the Aquaculture Stewardship Council.

It's a great way to enjoy seafood and make sure that it's not harming our oceans.

Immigrant Cuisine

As the world becomes more interconnected, dishes from all over the globe are making their way to mainstream menus. So, get ready for a delicious smorgasbord of authentic and diverse options, like the mouth-watering dishes of Africa, the Middle East, and Latin America.

Not only will it be a feast for your taste buds but also a way to learn and celebrate the cultural heritage. Sarap Now is all about sharing the amazing flavors from the different diasporas within the AAPI community.

Fermented Foods

Fermented foods, such as kimchi, kombucha, and kefir, have been gaining popularity in recent years due to their potential health benefits.

In addition to more education and information about the advantages of fermentation and how to include fermented foods at one's diet, anticipate seeing a greater variety of fermented foods out in the wild.

Low-Alcohol and Alcohol-Free Options

Increasingly health-conscious consumers are seeking out low- and alcohol-free solutions.

As well as more zero-proof cocktails on drink menus, expect to see additional non-alcoholic beer and wine alternatives in pop up.


Snackification is all about taking traditional meals and shrinking them down to snack-size portions like sliders and street tacos. This way, you can have more options, and they're more convenient to eat on the go.

So, keep an eye out for more bite-sized options in grocery stores and restaurants. It's all about having food that's easy to take with you and enjoy anytime, anywhere.

Healthful Indulgences

Healthful Indulgences refers to the idea of incorporating healthier ingredients into traditional indulgent foods.

Expect to see healthier options in dessert, fast-food and restaurant sectors, such as low-calorie ice-cream, plant-based cheese and gluten-free options.

The goal is to provide healthier and more guilt-free options for consumers to enjoy.


2023 is shaping up to be a delicious year in the food industry with a wide selection of new options to enjoy: From plant-based meat to sustainably caught seafood, variety of ethnic dishes and fermented foods, low alcohol and snack-sized meals, to healthier indulgences.

As the world and consumer preferences change, companies need to stay on top of the game to keep up with the trends.

It's all a reflection of people's growing awareness of how what they eat affects not only themselves but also the planet.

So, get ready to sink your teeth into the yummiest, most wholesome and ethical foods yet.
