Doing Business in the Halal Market

The Muslim religion is the second largest and fastest growing religion in the world, with Muslim consumers expected to reach 26 percent of the global population by 2030.

Muslim consumers seek products that cater to their religious needs and comply with Islamic requirements: from halal production process to halal labelling and packaging. The lack of permissible offerings has led to a surge in demand, as Muslims grow hungry for trendy products and services adapted to their lifestyle.

How Retailers are Addressing Global Food Waste


Listen as MP3

Top Trends Seen at FMI Connect and United Fresh 2015

The FMI (Food Marketing Institute) Connect, InterBev, and United Fresh co-located trade shows took place in Chicago from June 8 to 11. The three trade shows hosted attendees who saw the latest in alcoholic drinks, fresh produce, hot and soft drinks, and packaged foods for the supermarket industry. Below are the top trends that the Euromonitor research team of Beatriz de Llano, Emily Balsamo, Eric Penicka, Mark Strobel, and Virginia Lee observed.

Authentic Italian


Italian companies had a big presence at this year’s FMI Connect through the Italy pavilion. Organized by the Italian Trade Agency (ITA), the pavilion featured about 50 Italian food and beverage companies featuring products from gorgonzola cheese to Prosecco to packaged cornetti (an Italian pastry). While the presence of Italian products at FMI Connect was undoubtedly to increase exports of Italian products into US retail outlets, the underlying goal of the ITA was to educate Americans about what separates products from Italy and those made in the Italian style. Further, the ITA’s final objective is to obtain geographic labelling protections much like those which currently exist within the European Union, which are currently being negotiated under the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership. If passed, geographical indications on European products would give consumers an additional informative label to trust, much like “Certified GF Gluten Free” and “USDA Organic” certifications, assisting consumers in identifying true Italian products from their imitators.

China Banks on Potatoes for Food Security

Simone_BarokeAnalyst Insight by Simone Baroke - Contributing Analyst

The Chinese Government has decided that its people need to eat more potatoes in order ease pressure on the country’s scarce agricultural resources. It is true that fresh potatoes are performing quite well as the leading starchy root in China, but they face a tough battle ahead in their quest to rival the country’s most popular carbohydrate staples. The government may well succeed in turning the potato into the economical choice, but imbuing it with trendiness is another matter.

Potato production lags behind

In early January, China’s Central Government announced that it was to turn potatoes into the country’s fourth most important staple crop after rice, wheat and corn (maize). By 2020 the area allotted to potato cultivation would be doubled to 10 million hectares (100,000 km2). The government’s motivations for this move are safeguarding the country’s vast food security, relieving environmental pressure and helping to release more of its rural farming population from the clutches of poverty.

Eggs: The New Favourite Protein

Simone_BarokeAnalyst Insight by Simone Baroke - Contributing Analyst

Eggs are very much on the menu. In the US, their dynamism not only puts dwindling fresh meat sales to shame, but it seems that protein-packed eggs are turning into a threat for carbohydrate-based breakfast cereal. As eggs shed their high-cholesterol stigma, sales will increasingly be fuelled by rising demand from mature consumers, providing excellent long-term growth prospects.

Eggs beat meat

Consumers who love protein love eggs, and they certainly have a lot to offer. Eggs are tasty, nutritious, versatile and relatively cheap. Plus, frying one up does not require an advanced master class in haute cuisine.

The high-protein trend originated in the US, where eggs are benefitting from consumers searching out alternatives to meat. As growing numbers of people tune into environmental and health issues, they start to realise that their meat consumption is already on the high side, and that meat for breakfast, lunch and dinner is not the way forward.
