Flavor Trends from Symrise Come to Life at Recent Fancy Food Shows

Every year, Symrise tracks and analyzes popular foods, beverages, flavors and ingredients from around North America to determine the most prevalent and upcoming flavors that industry members can expect to see on the rise. The resulting product is our annual Top Trends Report.

Alongside our annual trends, we determine two separate sets of trends based on our findings at the Winter and Summer Fancy Food Shows. With the 2019 Winter Fancy Food Show around the corner, we’ve looked back at our annual and Fancy Food Show trends between 2016 and 2018 and aligned some of our annual trends with products from the shows.
