In this issue

In this issue of Inside Food, we explore how the industry is working to combat fruit waste, and take a look at the trends likely to shape the year ahead. 

We also find out how the plant-based food sector is growing and innovating, examine the consumer desire for authentic brand engagement and comforting products, and see why Campbell Soup should be getting back to basics.  

Finally, we ask whether a chocolate tax could tackle sugar consumption in the UK, investigate how blockchain is set to transform global food supply chains, and discover what 'clean meat' means for the meat and livestock industry.
