TMR has followed the C19-TREND approach for conducting a comprehensive analysis on the trends and changes in the food and beverage sector due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Each factor is analyzed with scrutiny. These points have been compiled in the report and will assure great assistance to the stakeholders and CXOs in developing sound business strategies.

Some C19-TRENDs that TMR has focused upon while analyzing the food and beverage sector are as follows:

Culinary Tourism

With the COVID-19 outbreak limiting the number of traveling and dining opportunities for individuals, many opt to experience the fun of a restaurant or destination at the comfort of their homes. Ready-to-drink beverages are being focused upon to enable the consumers to feel the vibe of a particular destination. This aspect will churn exponential growth.

Immunity-Boosting Items

A good immunity can help individuals tackle COVID-19 with ease. Many consumers are switching to immunity-boosting food and beverage items for improving their resistance against further infections. Many well-established players are paying attention on launching immunity-rich food and beverage products. This factor will attract promising revenues.

Strengthening of Home Delivery Mechanisms

Restaurants and food chains were closed for a substantial time during the lockdown period. Thus, home delivery of food products, eatables, and groceries became the new norm. Many people still prefer home delivery due to the fear of not venturing out. Home deliveries will play a crucial role in increasing the growth opportunities across the horizon of the food and beverages sector.


These are the major trends that will influence the growth of the food and beverage industry considerably. Although, the food and beverage sector was exempt from the lockdown restrictions, many cases of supply chain disruptions were observed. With mass vaccination drives and certain relaxations in restrictions, the supply chain disruptions will be minimized extensively.
