The author reflects on the implications of global food preferences of U.S. citizens for the retail food industry. He claims that this trend will lead to a decline of consumer interest in many of the legacy brands that dominated the U.S. commercial landscape, as already shown in the weakening center store sales and rise of private label brands. He adds that this shift also means that consumers will be thinking of preparations, flavors and ingredients, rather than branded food products.
