If you run a catering business, then you understand the importance of being able to provide good food at any sort of venue for large amounts of people. That can be a real challenge. Will the new trends in catering make things easier or more difficult for your business? Here is a look ahead:
- Tapas – The small plates trend is not showing any signs of slowing down. In fact, many people are happy to have their party catered with cocktails and appetizers.
- Sustainable menus – People want to know the source of their food, and they want confidence that local growers are being supported.
- More veggies – Vegetarian meals are on the rise. The more information that comes out linking the meat industry in America to climate change, the more of a clamor there is for meat-free diets.
- Customizable options – People are on so many different diets that the idea of providing a customizable menu, or even food stations where guests choose their own options, is continuing to gain ground.
- Reduced waste – Consumers are concerned about food waste. Will they get to take home leftovers? Will they be donated to a local homeless shelter? Whatever option you choose, you want your clients to be satisfied that the food isn’t just going in the garbage.
