Changing Consumer Demands Create Opportunities for U.S. Food System

David E. Davis and Hayden Stewart

Food Review/ National Food Review, 2002, vol. 25, issue 1

Abstract: In response to shifts in consumer demand, different sectors of the food system are competing to identify and provide more processed and higher value-added products. The foodservice industry has benefited from Americans' desire for convenience. The retail food industry, however, is now responding to the new challenges by offering consumers a variety of processed, readyto- cook, and ready-to-eat foods.
