You hear the word millennial constantly, referring to the generation born in the 1980s and 1990s, becoming young adults in the first decade of the 2000s. Millennials are technologically advanced and skilled in the use of new technologies that make their modern lifestyles possible and have become the generation of the Internet.
Millennials are also changing the way we shop, cook and eat our meals:
Millennials Want Transparency
Millennials want to know what’s in their food and value simple, healthy ingredients. Millennials are health-conscious (and educated) and want to know what ingredients are in their food choices. Is it natural? Free of additives and preservatives? Are the ingredients sustainable?
Millennials Want Convenience
Millennials live busy lives and have less time to cook at home and value convenience and ease of preparation. Prepackaged foods are an excellent option IF they contain healthy ingredients. If these food choices are available online with home delivery options, this internet savvy group will order them.
Millennials Like Snacks
Millennials prefer to customize meals and the ability to choose smaller or larger portion sizes based on how hungry they are. Millennials rarely eat the traditional breakfast, lunch and dinner but will often turn to snacks that are convenient and easy to prepare for their on-the-go lifestyle. They often choose snack options that are portable and easy to open and eat on the run.
Millennials Want Value
Millennials value work-life balance, getting “rich” may not be a priority, so value for their food dollar becomes important.
Millennials Love Ethnic Foods
Millennials often search for dishes with new or innovative flavors and ingredients. Latin and Caribbean flavors like chili-lime and jerk seasonings are also growing in popularity. This generation has grown up with access to more food choices than any previous generation and they are more than willing to try new flavors.
