Traditionally, the migration of influence has often been seen as moving from Western markets to emerging and Eastern ones, a product of the perception that the West has a monopoly on the "best" and most innovative ideas. However, this perception is now changing as players from around the globe grow in prominence in both reputation and innovation.
As consumers encounter a wider range of cultures and demand more exciting experiences, this is reshaping the food innovation landscape in their home markets. This demand is being reinforced by the sentiment that almost half of global consumers (43%) agree that their taste in food has changed as a result of exposure to foods from other cultures.
