Bunzl Lockhart, the UK’s leading distributor of catering supplies, has announce the release of its much anticipated seventh edition of Trend set magazine, which aims to provide those working within the food industry with valuable insight, supported by actual examples of realistically priced products, trends and themes to ensure professional food presentation.
Trend set magazine showcases innovation in food and drink presentation by pin-pointing real time trends and ideas from around the world.
Bunzl Lockhart believe ‘spotting and reacting to those trends and ideas is vital for any business as customers constantly look for the latest dining-out experience or the newest type of food to try for the first time.
Key trends the magazine identifies in its latest edition include ‘Taco’s transformation to reach the food gourmet league’, discussing how Tacos are undergoing a remarkable transformation from traditional Mexican street food, to cosmopolitan haute cuisine. ‘Greens are in’ looks at Mintel’s latest research which discusses the expansion of vegetarian, vegan and plant-based menu options. ‘New kids on the block’ looking at innovative children’s tableware, and how it promotes healthier eating.
‘Small is Beautiful’ expands on the importance of side dishes when creating elegant, and trend-forward food presentation. Plus, their ever-growing list of ‘cool stuff’ is recommended by their very own trend spotters who are located all over the world.
Trend set has built a global trend-spotting team of people who work for the best catering supply manufacturers in the world and either live in or visit the gastro capitals of the world, from New York to Hong Kong.
Simon Armer, Bunzl Lockhart’s Marketing Director said: “Trend set magazine is designed to be a key asset to those working in the food industry when making purchasing decisions in an industry where trends are imperative to the customer’s dining experience. We have captured insight from our collection of trend-spotters, and condensed it into Trend set, a magazine and website that will keep you fully briefed on all the latest developments.”
