The top 2015 food trends align with the growing popularity of nutritious meals and mobile eateries. While the past few years saw a rise in food trucks, this year saw a rise in niche on-the-go options for diners. Innovations such as urban sushi carts, mobile juice bars and experiential food tours have reinvented the concept of grab-and-go cuisine.

With consumers seeking out healthier alternatives to fast food, many brands have introduced pre-packaged food kits to be assembled on the go or at work. Brands have also introduced the idea of DIY farming for urban lifestyles. The Shroombox by Fungaea allows consumers to grow fresh mushrooms in their very own home.

3D-printing has continued to infiltrate the world of food, most notably with 3D-printed cheese and chocolate.
