The year 2023 looks promising following a couple of years that saw some restaurants and farms shutter and buying and eating habits at home and out changed as costs rose, availability changed and some jobs in the food industry went unfilled.
Find out what to expect when Chicagoland Food and Beverage Network holds its Trends: Past and Coming, Dec. 7, 2022 at the CoLaboratory, 1210 W. Lake St. Chicago.
An early evening event from 5 to 7:30 p.m., the session includes a summary from Datassential on 2022 and what to expect in the food and beverage industry in 2023. It will be followed by tastings of new products.
CFBN members who can’t make it can obtain meeting notes. For reservations, cost and other information visit Chicagolandfood/event.
It’s likely that some of these trends will show up on the tables at the 2023 James Beard Foundation’s “Tastes Of America.” They start in San Francisco in January, show up in Miami, Phoenix and Atlanta in February and then Chicago, San Juan and San Antonio in March.
