Based on top consumer food searches across its platform, Pinterest revealed its projections for trending foods in 2019, showcasing healthy, sustainable meals with unusual ingredients

Visual discovery social media platform Pinterest recently released its projections for next year's trending foods based on this year's data collection. In particular, the food and beverage list for 2019 includes Pinterest's predictions for the most photogenic foods, and are slated to potentially have a strong market influence.

The official list includes mushrooms, oxtail, a combination of vegan and paleo dishes, homemade breads, jams and jelly, large trays of fruit, cheese and other quick bites called grazing tables, ginger water, dinners made in foil packs, oat milk and chayote. Each of these items has seen a recent increase of search activity, the highest of which goes to homemade jelly at 829%, earning the food a place on the Pinterest top 10 for 2019.

Given the influencing power of social media, the impact this data collection has on the consumer indirectly affects the retailer, and has the power to restructure inventory in a given market. These selections are of a healthier nature and therefore could have an impact on health food retailers like Sprout's, Whole Foods or Natural Grocers in particular.
