In Food & Beverage, health, taste, all-natural and convenience are key drivers in consumers’ food preferences and selection. Changing consumer demands and recent regulatory interventions have impacted the R&D landscape of this market sector significantly, and still do. For example, sugary products have become a hard sell. In the UK sugar taxes are being implemented and more countries are expected to follow. Consumer preference is shifting towards fermentation and craft foods. Dairy and meat alternatives, such as vegetarian burgers and non-dairy milks, are becoming mainstream.
