The 365 days of a year is a very long span. If you try to look back a year before, you will yourself see life was so different then, from where it stands now.
As a human being experience a lot of changes in this span of a year, so thus a community, a party, an organization, a state or an industry.
Alike this, the food industry of India experienced a lot of changes throughout the year of 2015. It’s not any political party or influential individual altered it. It happened due to people like us, who gradually made changes in our gastronomical taste without even getting aware about it.
Let’s check the culinary changes that hit India in the year of 2015.
Emergence of Mobile Food
This year the country witnessed the utmost rise of mobile food services via websites and apps. Food startups flourished to supply hungry tummies even at the middle of the night. The concept of home delivery was accepted by Indians years ago. Now their dependence on mobile food of course shows the fascination for outdoor food and less inclination on home food.
The trust on the hygiene and quality of restaurant food had reached a stake for which many eateries now have open kitchens. Here, you can see your food getting ready and some also allow you to customize the food as per your taste and want. To name one such popular DIY eatery in India is Subway, where you can select your own kind of ingredients to prepare a filling sandwich.
Importance of beverages
The ending of a food treat or a complete meal with a sweet meat not only offers a sweet tooth but is a culinary satisfaction that hits out buds. If not every day, but on weekends or special occasion don’t you like your lunch or dinner to end with a chilled ice cream or ghee spread sweet? This acceptance of dessert as an important ingredient in menu thus made the country shower with outlets of Café Coffee Day,Barista, Buskin Robbins, Kwality Swirls, so on and so forth.
Sustainability is the word
This is due to the government initiative of Swaatch Bharat. Public food zones like canteens, hotels or hostels dominate India yet; no initiative or regulation was taken on the food waste it generates. The country produces food wastes equal to what people eat in the UK. So much of it was dumped here and there creating environmental degradation. Now, with emphasis from the Modi government, even these eateries make sure of a sustainable way to decompose the food waste.
Rise in food catering
The rise in number of nuclear families has made Indians set apart from near ones. Hence, we now try to fetch opportunities for meet overs and celebrations. When these happen, it’s of course not possible to cook at home for such large number of people. Then we call the nearest food caterer or web search for the best one. Looking at this growing need for food caterers, business houses all ready to serve food in these occasions are coming up at every nook and crevice of the country.
As young Indian parents spend a lot of time in offices, thus they don’t get the scope to cook lovely treats for their kids. Thus children now tend to know more of rolls, burgers, sandwiches and tacos than usual curries and gravies. This led to the growth of fast food chains, pizza outlets and pasta counters throughout India.
