Posted by: jillw in: Lane News -

Our annual report – now in its eighth year – coalesces impressions from food and beverage industry insiders to provide insight to changes that may be expected in the coming year, from potential fads to substantive shifts in how Americans eat, drink, shop and entertain. This year’s report gleans views from chefs, nutritionists, writers and artisan producers from around the U.S.

“One of the most exciting things about the food and beverage industry is its constant evolution,” said Wendy Lane Stevens, president of LANE. “Each year brings new experiences to the fore, and by knowing how Americans’ tastes are shifting, we can arm our clients in the industry with a more complete picture of the environment in which they are competing. We’re committed to driving business success for our clients, and we’re pleased to work with partners around the country to provide an overview of the industry’s movement.”
