Seven Promo Products Keeping Up With Nutrition Trends
Our relationship with food is every changing. It can be a source of comfort. During the pandemic, cooking became an American pastime. We were baking bread — from scratch. Flour sales in March 2020 rose over 2,000% for one company. A 2020 survey found that 74% of respondents used cooking as a successful coping mechanism to deal with the stress of being home.
Now, people are looking at food to enrich their lives. Plant-based eating will only become more popular. Plant foods, like fruits, vegetables, beans and grains, are full of nutrients, vitamins and minerals. Plant-based eating is also better for the environment. Meat production produces twice as much greenhouse gas emissions per day compared to plant-based foods, according to one Oxford University study.
Food choices greatly impact our well-being and planet. Since the pandemic, drivers of food purchasing decisions have changed. One survey found that healthfulness now matters more than taste and price. Here are seven promo products that represent the future of food.
