As the new year approaches, Amazon’s Whole Foods reveals its predictions for the top food trends of 2020. Trends for 2019 included a rise in vegan meats and eco-conscious packaging; regenerative agriculture tops the list for 2020 which includes West African food, new flours, and plant-based meat products.
