Technomic predicts 2024 will be the year of the tomato, an ingredient with vast applications, appeal and health benefits.

The research firm describes potential, sometimes non-traditional uses for the tomato: “Next year, expect more nontraditional uses of tomatoes, such as in desserts and as a meat replacement, along with jam, fermented, frozen and clarified preparations.

“Global tomato-based sauces and dips such as Mayan sikil pak, Libyan chraimeh sauce and Japanese yum yum sauce, as well as dishes suchas Philippine sarsiado and West African mafe stew will gain ground.

“And beyond bloody marys, tomato will blossom in adult beverages, like caprese- inspired vodka drinks and Chavela beer cocktails.”


These and more trends may be found in Technomic’s white paper, “What’s in Store for 2024.”
