Retro Is Back

Food is looking back to the future! In the past year, movies such as Ready Player One and the Netflix programme Stranger Things have brought retro back to the masses through nostalgic thrill rides using 80s soundtracks, old school movies and iconic technology.

Nostalgia is tried, tested and makes us feel safe. In this time of political uncertainty consumers are keen to have shared food experiences that bring them together with their friends and family and make them feel comforted. As a result, classic dishes invoking nostalgia are being reimagined for the modern consumer.
