Session title: Evolution of Eating Occasions in Post Pandemic Era
Session description: Eating Occasions are becoming more complex as consumers balance demand for healthy, flavorful food with increasingly time-pressed lives. These pressures have only been amplified as the pandemic uproots traditional routines. Snacks, ready meals and foodservice are tying to meet demand for convenient food that is also experiential and indulgent. Under the pandemic, former interest in portability has yielded to at-home products that are easy-to-prepare, convenient and offer access to cuisines that are often difficult to cook from scratch. Also, the pandemic blurred lines between foodservice and retail. Restaurants were forced to pivot to delivery, take-out or creating new products for retail. Homebound consumers found ways to recreate the restaurant experience at home via delivery, meal kits or new culinary adventures. Meanwhile, “grow-it-yourself came from consumers’ needs for transparent food origins instead of a form of home entertainment in the pandemic. These new business environments and consumers lifestyles are gradually influencing the food industry.
