Here at Athena Farms, we are always trying to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to menu trends and consumer preferences. As 2023 just started, it’s important to start thinking about the types of health-conscious menu items that consumers will be looking for in the coming year.
Plant-Based and Unprocessed Options
One trend in 2023 is the demand for plant-based options. More and more people are choosing to incorporate plant-based proteins into their diets, whether for health, environmental, or ethical reasons. This trend is expected to continue to grow, with a predicted increase in demand for plant-based burgers, sausages, and other meat alternatives.
Another trend that is expected to continue in 2023 is the focus on whole, unprocessed foods. Consumers are becoming increasingly aware of the importance of whole, unprocessed foods for their health, and are looking for options that are minimally processed and free from additives and preservatives. Athena Farms offers a variety of locally grown products such as eggs, nuts, as well as fresh fruits and vegetables, to meet this demand.

Global Flavors and Sustainability
In addition to plant-based and unprocessed options, there is also a growing trend towards global flavors and cuisines. Consumers are becoming more adventurous in their food choices and are looking for new and exciting flavors from around the world. Athena Farms offers a wide range of international ingredients, including spices, herbs, and seasonings, to help restaurants and food service providers offer their customers a taste of the world.
Lastly, there is a growing trend towards sustainability and eco-friendliness in the food industry.
