Three Global Food Trends Driving Innovation at Nestlé

From local foods to plant-based diets, we’re listening and leading the way on new flavors and ingredients


1. Innovation is borne locally and scaled globally.

Around the world, Nestlé is fueled by an incredible 323,000 employees, each of whom has their own cultural connection to food and unique viewpoint. That gives us an incredible opportunity to tap into new flavors, customs, and ways of thinking. Empowering our teams to innovate locally has helped Nestlé unlock creative approaches to product development, while elevating local flavors and incorporating them into our products, just like our launch of Maggi Masalas of India.


2. Nutrition, taste, and convenience shouldn’t have to be a trade-off.

People want meal options that are delicious, nutritious and hassle-free. We’re committed to meeting this need by offering products that offer taste and convenience, while also providing vital nutrients.


3. Plant-based foods are blooming.

The popularity of plant-based foods is growing, with more households following a “flexitarian” diet. Our research has found that 59% of consumers eat meatless meals once a week, plant-based foods are expected to fuel a $5 billion marketplace by 2020.
