Thanksgiving is in our rearview mirrors, and the New Year will be here before we know it. The new year means new growth opportunities for many, and our industry is looking forward to that potential as we continue to predict trends and products that will create major waves in stores. Bolthouse Farms is one such company preparing for a new year as it recently released its own predictions of what will take the industry by storm in 2022.
First on the trend docket are dips! 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. Bolthouse Farms Classic Ranch Dressing is an ideal pairing for the crunchy dunkee as it’s made with creamy yogurt, hints of garlic, and onions, offering a creamy, delicious flavor that is only 45 calories per serving.
Next trend on deck is predicted to be 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 include:
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.
