What does it all mean? Restaurants are entering a period of time where culturally inspired creations are valued over corporate manufactured menus. And, consumers will continue to crave food choices that more accurately represent the cultures and food traditions that they identify with. For retailers, it means understanding the mentality of consumers purchasing with a purpose. Whether that’s a trip abroad or a new pair of shoes, they’re looking for a more personal connection and desire to make a positive impact. Either way, cultural diversity opens the door for fresh perspectives and big possibilities across industries.
