Fruit and Vegetable Revival:
This theme is about recognising the inherent health benefits of fruits and vegetables and developing innovative new products to help consumers increase their intake of fruits and vegetables.

Culinary Expansion:
Due to economic constraints, there is a trend that consumers eat out less, but instead spoil themselves with true indulgence at home. There is also a rising interest in quality home cooking. This theme caters for the creative home cook and people who like to entertain friends at home.

New Retro:
This theme is about revitalizing old and traditional products, tapping into the escalating trend of nostalgia.
