Event Details

Join us on the 2nd of February at 8.30 a.m. for the Irish Chamber of Commerce Singapore's February First Friday Breakfast.  Our 'Spotlight series' this month will be focusing on "2024 Taste Trends – Meeting consumer food and beverage expectations" with Avinash Lal, Market Research & Customer Insights Director at Kerry Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa. 


Avinash will reveal the flavour trends in South East Asia for 2024 and the science behind the predictions through Kerry's 360-approach to innovation and proprietary tools including Taste Charts and Trendspotter. Each year Kerry dives deep into consumer trends to identify emerging taste and nutrition flavours and ingredients that will influence the food you buy and eat responding to consumers' ever changing food and beverage expectations. Kerry has analysed consumer preferences and purchasing decisions in real-time, including menu trends, product launches and ingredient labels, as well as social media chatter and proprietary research. Where does nutrition fit in? There's no denying that in the post COVID world, consumers want healthier products but taste is still number one.
