We love to make it, read about it, Instagram about it and we are surrounded by more of it than ever before. Food and drink. Some would say we’re obsessed by it, which has driven the industry to become highly dynamic when it comes to demanding consumers seeking diversity, quality and value.
With the end of a whirlwind year fast approaching, comes the analysis of exciting global trends that are set to take our tastebuds by storm in 2018. The food and beverage sector is in for a game-changing year with even more business growth expected and a whole lot of brands turning their focus to food and drink as it maintains it’s position as a valuable ingredient for many retail precincts, social hubs and brands in both Australia and around the world.
Here at the projects*, 2017 marked a serious love affair between our team and the world of food and drink. We even managed to make our gluttonous dreams come true and put the two together for Lion’s pop-up restaurant,The Dining Table — 10 nights, 10 of Australia’s coolest chefs pairing drool worthy meals with a variety of beers. I still have heavenly dreams about it.
