Supermarket Guru Predicts Top Food Trends for 2015

With 2014 drawing to a close – stores couldn't get Christmas displays up fast enough once trick-or-treating was done – it's time to turn our attention to 2016.

Just kidding! We won't skip 2015 like the stores and television channels are skipping Thanksgiving. Which just happens to be one of my favorite holidays. Hence the bitterness.

Supermarket Guru Phil Lempert has issued his picks for the Top Food Trends we can expect to encounter in 2015. Luckily, the list appears light on bacon, paleo, no-carb, low-carb, etc., though I'm sure one or more of these trends will come to annoy the living stuffing out of us over the next 14 months.

Lempert's picks include:
  • An increase in grazing among older shoppers
  • A turn towards online grocery shopping/delivery services
  • More fermented foods like sauerkraut being added to diets
  • Craft foods with specialized, local ingredients
  • And, smoked foods
You can read the whole list here.
