- by Peggy Packer
BAKERSFIELD, CA - Before we know it, 2022 will be at our doorstep. In order to prepare, companies have looked at possible food and beverage trends—particularly in the fresh space. Bolthouse Farms recently released its own predictions of what will take the industry by storm in the new year.
First on the trend docket are dips and veggies that consumers want to dip! According to a release, Bolthouse Farms recently commissioned a study and found that carrots are viewed as the most dippable vegetable, and most likely to be included in a veggie tray. In the study, broccoli and celery came in second and third as the vegetables likely to be included on a dipping tray.
A perfect pairing for this is Bolthouse Farms Classic Ranch Dressing, which is made with creamy yogurt, hints of garlic, and onions, offering a creamy, delicious flavor for 45 calories per serving.
The next trend predicted is immunity-boosting products that taste good. The release explained that consumers are looking for healthier food products, especially amid a global pandemic, but they aren’t willing to sacrifice taste.
The products that Bolthouse Farms offers to counter this demand are as follows:
- Bolthouse Farms Green Immunity Boost - a tasty combination of pineapple, cucumber, apple, ginger, and kale combined with immunity-boosting ingredients. The vegan beverage is an excellent source of vitamins C, D, and E, and has no added sugars, all to help support a healthy immune system
- Bolthouse Farms Superfood Immunity Boost - packed with immunity-boosting ingredients and great taste. This beverage is a great source of vitamins C, D, E, and Zinc, with no added sugars. Each Superfood Immunity bottle is made with over 1,400 elderberries, 250 cranberries, and 300mg of echinacea, supporting a healthy immune system and overall wellness
Last, but not least, Bolthouse also predicts that flexitarian diets will continue to trend. Plant-based diets aren’t going away any time soon, and the flexitarian diet is perfect for consumers who aren’t quite ready to give up animal products entirely but want to incorporate more veggies into their diet.
Bolthouse Farms leads with the vision of Plants Powering People™, supporting vegans, vegetarians, and flexitarians alike. The company offers plant-based dressings, snackable carrots, creamy dressings, café beverages, immunity juices, and more.
We’ll continue to keep track of what’s to come in 2022, so stay tuned!
