Top 100 Food Products in May

From Make-Ahead Breakfast Bites to Earthy Organic Juice Bars

— May 31, 2015 — Lifestyle
In addition to covering recipes and unique items, the May 2015 food innovations include interesting restaurant design, food packaging and related topics. These insights will prove especially useful to marketers involved in food and beverage industries as well as chefs, restaurant owners and other food industry professionals.

As hybrid food items continue to be very popular, some creative cooks are turning traditional meals on their heads. Spaghetti and meatballs have been revamped in a number of ways online and on menus, such as spaghetti meatball sandwiches and spaghetti meat bowls.

When it comes to May 2015 food packaging, sustainability is a running theme, from eco take-out containers to rice paper packaging. This can also be seen in real restaurant locations, as many incorporate a garden-to-table model or will only serve fresh produce, fore-going meat all together.
