Portalatin continued saying “This (trend) will continue as breakfast foods meet consumers’ primary needs of function, convenience, and enjoyment. “While breakfast as an institution is deeply rooted, the what, how, and why surrounding our food and beverage choices and where we get them is changing,” .. “Busy schedules mixed with good intentions and the need for fuel, shape what we eat and drink in the morning.”
Here is what we liked to hear a lot the “NPD’s study finds that today’s consumers are less concerned with the food itself and more interested in solutions that can bridge meals.
