With so many new businesses opening up every day, it can be hard to keep up with what’s going on in the industry. That’s why we’ve put together this guide to help you stay on top of the latest trends.
Here are three F&B trends that are shaping up to be big winners in Singapore:
The rise of the “gourmet” coffee shops
The Singaporean coffee scene has been booming in recent years, and it’s not hard to see why. The city is teeming with talented baristas who are passionate about their craft, as well as customers who are willing to pay for quality brews.
The term “gourmet” has always been associated with food, but now it’s also being used to describe coffee. The rise of the gourmet coffee shop has been driven by an increase in demand for higher-quality coffee and a desire for more personalized experiences.
The popularity of these gourmet coffee shops has grown so much that they’ve become an integral part of many people’s daily routines–they provide a place where people can go to relax after work or school (or even during), where they can meet with colleagues, friends or family for conversation or quiet contemplation.
A renewed focus on sustainability and local sourcing
This is reflected in the growing popularity of restaurants that source ingredients from local farmers, as well as those that use sustainable practices when it comes to waste management.
Consumers today want transparency when it comes to where their food comes from and how it was made. Singaporeans are becoming more aware of the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle and dietary practices. Many restaurants now feature locally sourced ingredients on their menus–they know this will appeal to customers who care about sustainability as well as taste.
With an eye toward environmental sustainability, many restaurants are also working hard to reduce their carbon footprint while still offering delicious meals and it seems customers are willing to pay extra for them
A focus on wellness and health
As consumers become more conscious of the food they eat, restaurants are focusing on how to make their offerings healthier.
We’ve seen the rise of plant-based products and an emphasis on healthy eating habits over the years. People are becoming more aware of what they put into their bodies, which is leading many establishments to offer healthier options.
