Food and Beverage Industry Trends Report
H2 2022
Morning Consult’s semiannual State of Food & Beverage report tracks evolving consumer trends in food and beverage and what they mean for the future of the industry.
Based on survey interviews conducted monthly since October 2021 with around 2,200 U.S. adults, plus a quarterly international survey of more than 14,000 adults across the Americas, Europe and the Asia-Pacific region, this report provides insight into how consumers are thinking about and engaging with food and beverages today.
  • With the consumer price index for food at home up 13.1% annually in July, consumers are concerned about costs across grocery categories.
  • Evaluating restaurant spending is top of mind for consumers amid inflation. Consumers still have not fully returned to on-premises dining, despite high comfort levels.
  • Convenience and cost, not enjoyment, are driving more consumers to cook and eat at home.
