Food for Thought: Food News Trends
While foodies always seek out articles regarding their passion, Terri Coles from the Ottawa Citizen claims that food has splashed onto the front page of mainstream news in a new way.
“From recalled tomatoes to calorie counts on menus, food and health was a big part of the news in 2008” and is gaining steam in 2009.
What’s going on in the fields has long been a reflection of economy, culture, and politics. However, maybe in a time of instant information it’s easier to follow the news worthy trends even as they are happening.
Coles lists the top 5 anticipated food-related hot news topics for 2009.
