Trend subjects

Slowing down and mindfulness

In our hectic, efficiency-driven society, the need for relaxation and mindfulness is on the rise. This can also be seen in the increasingly careful preparation and conscious enjoyment of our food.

Zero Waste

From Green members of Parliament to influencers on YouTube: low-package nutrition is a hot topic when it comes to "zero waste."

Ecology and Sustainability

Now new, but more and more important: aspects such as ecology and sustainability give nutrition a political dimension. Suddenly, for example, powerful politicians are discussing the dramatic death of bees.

New media

Food formats are becoming more and more fluid - constantly growing digital communities, food blogs and food tubers with millions of followers, recipes in the form of GIFs and much more.
