    Middle Eastern and African flavor concepts

    18 December 2018

    Global ethnic flavors resonate very well with today’s consumers. Inspired by travel and a desire for adventure, consumers demonstrate continued excitement around well-rounded, full-flavored cuisine, says Kalsec. An increased focus on authentic flavors and dishes has led to demand for specialized retail ready-to-eat meals, soups and appetizers. At Food Matters Live in London last month, James Smith told FoodIngredientsFirst: “Consumers are travelling much more than ever, and we are offering authentic flavor blends to ensure that we can offer the tastes they are looking for. Middle Eastern and African flavors are quite new for us, we expect to see these flavors more in 2019 and certainly for the BBQ season next year.”
