Amid new consumer demographics that encompasses the young people, the focus has shifted on sustainability, health, and freshness of the offerings, and the food tech industry is evolving accordingly. The sector is aiming to familiarize itself to the changing times and offer healthier food habits and avoid adulteration in the food products. Blockchain-based mobile applications are strengthening food management by tracing and recording transactions to maintain the security and quality of the food industry. Blockchain is also helping in providing brand transparency and handling big data.

With the emergence of augmented and virtual reality in the food industry, creative food images have become less significant. Transparency in food is now the most vital thing that there is. The calorie intake of a consumer is now connected with what cuisine they are ordering with the help of augmented and virtual reality. Technology is also supporting consumers by bridging in the gap between different cultures. Food mobile applications are leveraging AI-based chatbots to connect with their consumers. These chatbots send food recommendations based on eating behaviors. The support via chatbots is available round the clock.

The food and beverage industry is transforming - that much is clear. The fast evolution of technology, digitalization possibilities - in a conventionally low-tech, complex industry- is opening a variety of applications to the global food chain.
