The clean label movement is broadening its scope to include products that can be linked to health benefits. The term “clean label” has been used in the food industry for many years, but it is now used as a catchphrase to attract modern-day consumers. Clean label has now become the norm, with consumers demanding to know everything about the products, from their origins to their benefits. As a result of this trend, manufacturers are stepping up their clean label game and introducing more products with less complexity, greater transparency, and simplistic ingredients.

Smart consumers today expect a premium experience from their products, whether in terms of presentation or taste. Convenient-innovative-and-sustainable packaging, vibrant colors, fortified-enriched ingredients, a strong label game, and exotic flavors are expected to capture the attention of consumers.” Said a lead analyst at FMI
Pervasive digitization of the path to purchase and last-mile delivery
The convergence of artificial intelligence and flavor science is expected to transform the global food industry. Manufacturers are developing technologies that can predict flavor combinations, as well as tools that can add solutions to some of the food industry’s critical challenges, ranging from the “Internet of Food” to machine learning. Advances in the field will allow the food industry to drastically improve flavor formulation and product development. The use of a digital thread can enable the calculation of a product’s nutritional profile, the finalization of recipes in the lab, the monitoring of the entire supply chain, and the tracking of ingredient sourcing from different providers all the way to the consumer.
Customers are increasingly interested in having a multisensory experience when they consume food and beverages. Consumers prefer food products that are visually appealing, have a pleasant odor when opened, and provide a satisfying taste when consumed. Manufacturers are also demonstrating an interest in developing technological advances that focus on an understanding of the multisensory influences on flavor perception in order to improve the design of human–food interactions.
Among the sensory systems, visual and mouth feel are the most valued by consumers and have a significant impact on product selection. Citrus fruits have the widest range of taste variances of any fruit category. As a result, manufacturers are using citrus flavors in their products to catch the attention of consumers.
