Summer is here, and so is the desire for picnic-ready food-to-go options. As temperatures rise, people are seeking convenient food-to-go options, without compromising on flavour. In this blog post, we’ll explore the top trends in summer food-to-go.
When the weather heats up, there’s nothing better than enjoying the natural goodness of fresh, seasonal ingredients. Think vibrant salads packed with juicy tomatoes, crisp cucumbers, and leafy greens. Customers are leaning towards summer veggies in a tortilla wrap for easy one-handed-eating, or choosing refreshing fruit bowls for a sweet snack. Do you offer either of these options?
With the highstreet food offering ever-diversifying, you don’t need to travel to taste world flavours. Grab-and-go establishments like Greggs are spicing things up by offering a world of flavours. Their globally-inspired options make for an exciting customer experience and offer the customer a wide variety of choices.
More and more people are embracing plant-based lifestyles, and summer food-to-go trends are following suit. Businesses are catering to the growing demand for plant-based and vegan options. From juicy veggie burgers to deceivingly creamy plant-based ice cream. These guilt-free and sustainable choices let customers indulge in while keeping the planet happy.
Summer and picnics go hand in hand. Food-to-go establishments should be ready to fuel their customers’ adventures with easily transportable and picnic-friendly options. Think gourmet sandwiches or pre-packaged snack boxes. These grab-and-go goodies make it easy to enjoy a delicious meal in the park, on the beach, or anywhere else you’re exploring.
Staying hydrated is a must during the summer heat, and food-to-go trends go beyond just food. Customers are now looking to quench their thirst with refreshing beverages that pack a flavour punch. Make sure you stock plenty of cold-pressed juices, infused waters, and iced coffee beverages to keep them happy.
Summer food-to-go trends are all about embracing the season’s fresh flavours, convenience, and taste on the move. From fresh and vibrant ingredients to global-inspired delights, plant-based options, portable feasts, and thirst-quenching beverages, as a food retail establishment it is important you are offering up to date items for your customers.
