In the fast pace life of today’s, the urban millennial population is increasingly getting inclined towards ordering food from outside. Students and professionals who are living in cities away from their home are choosing to order food from takeaways, small outlets or through apps like Zomato and Swiggy.
Firstly, because the food is cheaper than before now from these sources. Secondly, there’s hardly any compromise in terms of quality and the delivery is faster.
This hassle-free and pocket-friendly availability of food is taking away a large chunk of the population away from the daily chores of the kitchen. And this is adding up to the long list of customers of the food industry.
As per a report in Statista, the Food and Beverage Industry’s ‘Revenue is expected to show an annual growth rate (CAGR 2020-2024) of 14.2%, resulting in a market volume of US$1,264m by 2024.’
This tremendous probable growth is sure to boost the industry further paving way for more business to enter the sector as the amount of consumers are in no way coming down in the coming years.
This allows individuals having a knack in the industry to either try and get a job or even open a new startup outlet to tend to the people.
However, the present millennial population also are quite health conscious. They do care for what their food consists of and the healthy items that their food should contain.
Keeping the health and preference factors in mind, it becomes increasingly difficult for the new age chefs to cater to the hungry crowd.
And herein culinary science plays an important role. Knowledge in culinary science helps an individual understand the ingredients that a certain food item should possess. Molecular Gastronomy is the new art of food science and culinary science introduces one to that.
