Millennials, Gen Z, and social media play a big role in the rise of specialty food products.
Chef Robert Irvine discusses how specialty foods are no longer on the sidelines in the food service industry.
Consumers today have higher expectations for the foodservice industry. Millennials and Gen Z specifically are looking for specialty foods that offer more options for a healthier diet.
Whether it’s creating new chef-inspired meals and products, or chefs using specialty food products in their menus, the specialty food industry is on the rise. Earning in $140.3 billion within the last year, there is a convergence between chefs and specialty food makers to meet these expectations.
