The 2018 Flavor Charts represent Kerry’s annual review of food and beverage flavor landscape, utilizing sales performance, consumer trends, foodservice influences and endorsements from our internal culinary experts to predict flavors for the coming year. Flavors are broken up into four categories: mainstream, key, up & coming, and emerging. Mainstream and key flavors are the top flavors that are here to stay, while up & coming and emerging flavors are set to create ripples in the food industry. The Flavor Charts program spans over a decade to provide Kerry customers with a proprietary view into flavor charts.
