In an ever-evolving culinary landscape, the theme of 'Provenance' signifies the exploration and amplification of the depth and diversity of Indian cuisine, it not only connects us to the origins of our food but also highlights the need for sustainable practices that preserve our culinary heritage. The report also throws light on conscientious eaters who seek transparency and authenticity and gravitate towards products that champion the values embedded in their journey from farm to plate.

According to the report, Experts forecast that 92.3% of travellers will join Culinary site tours to enrich their travels through authentic culinary encounters while the bar scene in 2024 will be illuminated by dedicated menus around Indian-origin spirits by 82.7%. It also highlights that Korean food culture will grow while the preference for ghee will rise in the coming times. The report also forecasts that women will play an important role in the industry; from regional custodians to food entrepreneurs, chefs, bartenders and brewers, women will finally get due recognition for their contribution to shaping Indian gastronomy.

Commenting on the 2024 edition of the report, Tanya Dubash - Executive Director & Chief Brand Officer, Godrej Industries Limited and Associate Companies, said, “The Godrej Food Trends Report 2024 marks another milestone in our quest to spark conversations and identify trends in the food industry.

Rushina Munshaw Ghildiyal, Managing Director of Perfect Bite Consulting and Curating Editor of the Godrej Food Trends Report, set the stage for the 2024 edition as she said " In India, provenance is guiding our most relevant conversations around food. This interest in provenance is also translating into real growth for the F&B industry. The traditional plate, once dictated primarily by seasonality and local bounty, is now being driven by a quest for flavour. I am optimistic that the Indian food industry will prove to be a benchmark for empowerment and innovation in the years to come. Just as each dish in a multi-course meal tells a story, each section of the Godrej Food Trends Report 2024 invites readers to savour the insights and flavours of our diverse food culture."
