In 2018, foodie culture is at an all-time high. The is thanks largely to the popularisation of healthy and “responsible” eating driving consumer decision-making as people are more happy than ever to buy premium ingredients (including “organic”,”fair-trade” or “ethically sourced” foods). However social media also has a hand in this – with everyone being able to snap their perfectly styled meal and post it for the world to see the chosen ingredients need to be exciting and on-trend!

So what are 2018’s trendiest foods?

According to a recent Kantar Worldpanel report pineapple sales are growing incredibly quickly. Pineapples are seeing 6.8% growth in the year to Feb 2018 (spend levels were at £43,935,000 for the year) with Tesco reporting a 15% increase in sales of the tropical fruit last year.
