Consumers are open to new flavors and ingredients, but the way they are learning about innovation is shifting. Brands can tap into transportive flavors to take people where they can’t physically go.
During her presentation, Mattucci outlined how transportive flavors provide comfort to consumers who are longing to go out or travel, offer a value-for-money appeal that is recession-proof, embolden brands through consumers' already adventurous tastes and create experiences through flavor and aroma that build connections with authentic ingredients.
Mattucci noted, "The global travel shutdown has made many consumers yearn for flavors that offer escapism, a kind of virtual tourism for the tastebuds. Flavors can transport people where they can’t physically go. They can provide comfort for consumers who are longing to go out or even travel and experience new things."
