The North American food market is constantly evolving with new trends influencing consumer eating habits creating many different issues for manufacturers aiming to capitalize on the food market. Some of the most important trends in the region include traditional foods, exotic and healthy foods, high-quality convenience and the growing importance of vegetables as the main component of a meal.
The US is the one of largest food markets in volume terms among the countries analyzed. This can be attributed to population size, high income and consumption rates.
Increasing food adventurism, diets, experimentation and a focus on both local and exotic foods are changing the food landscape in the region.
The food market in the region is becoming far more diverse and fragmented than in previous years due to globalization, immigration and food experimentation.
