Food is an extremely lucrative industry where major companies and new entrants are relentlessly trying to outdo each other through taste, safety and transparency, innovation and product differentiation, as well as capitalizing on new trends like plant-based meat alternatives that are often touted as a solution to food security problems. According to the National Restaurants Association in the United States, there were close to $700 billion in food sales made by restaurants in 2020 despite the COVID-19 pandemic.

So don’t be afraid and invest in the following companies. You can find success through them, just like the entrepreneur Juan Jose Gutierrez Mayorga did.

New Trends in the Food Industry and the COVID-19 Impact
In the convenience food sector, sales went up more than 70% due to supply chain chain disruptions to large food suppliers.

Global management consultancy McKinsey claims that data driven innovation is going to drive the food industry forward in the next few years. These data trends would also result in a pivot towards personalized marketing of food products, the consultancy has forecast. It also says that big brands will face stiff competition from challenger firms, but bigger companies are likely to prevail as the post-pandemic economy will shift focus towards private label products. The pandemic-induced wellness preferences are also here to stay.

The technological innovation in the food industry is also affecting the stock market. The entire hedge fund industry is feeling the reverberations of the changing financial landscape.
