DUBLIN, Sept. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "South American Flavors: Culinary Trend Tracking Series" report to their offering.
South American Flavors: Culinary Trend Tracking Series spotlights emerging, penetrating and integrated food and ingredient trends that are seeing resurgent opportunities as their popularity is recast in a new light.
With 20% of U.S. adults agreeing that they enjoy eating foreign foods, and Peruvian cuisine being identified as a hot cuisine to watch by both the National Restaurant Association and influential chefs across the globe, South American Flavors is a timely research report that includes category relevant charts and trend application tables.
South American Flavors spotlights the major drivers of these trends within the following framework:
- Health and wellness
- Food integrity and authenticity, including natural, organic, local and food freshness
- Bold flavors and flavor tourism
- Craft and artisanal
- Purposeful eating
At its best, marketing and promoting international and regional cuisines is neither strictly about tradition nor exactly about fusion. It's about participating in the evolution of foodways that are always-already fused, continuing the intermingling of traditions and cross-cultural influences in the spirit of authenticity rather than under the strict letter of culinary law.
South American Flavors uses a data-driven approach, along with a comprehensive understanding of restaurant, retail and consumer trends, to create the opportunity-scape for our customers:
