How can we make the most of this year’s grocery trends as we prepare to kick off 2024? With the help of Instacart, that task will be less daunting for many retailers. The grocery partner recently released insights on the items that drove specialty food growth in 2023.

One trend undoubtedly caught our eye, as Instacart reported that “higher protein intake is on the rise.”

“Our survey found that of those who plan to make dietary changes in the new year, 39 percent want to eat a higher protein diet,” the company said in a recent release. “Instacart’s purchase data also signals that people are starting to reach for higher protein items and snacks. Fueling up on protein isn’t just a hunger buster; it may come with a host of health benefits.”
