Supermarket Perimeter - December 2019 - 26

Deli

Ethnic trends
BY JEFF GELSKI

WITH THE WELL-DOCUMENTED RISE IN IMMIGRANTS in the United
States, as well as the desire of younger shoppers to broaden their palate
with new and exciting flavors, supermarkets have an opportunity with
their deli and prepared departments.
Creating connections with ethnic consumers and inquisitive shoppers is one of the biggest challenges for retailers. Instead of offering
watered down versions of what might be served in other countries,
supermarkets can differentiate themselves by staying on top of ethnic
trends and respecting the flavors and dishes that are currently popular.

African, Indian flavors trending
Integration is happening now with flavors from Africa and India.
Although not as prominent as flavors from Mexico and Asia, they are
starting to appear more often in U.S. restaurant menus.
26 - DECEMBER 2019

The National Restaurant Association, based in Washington, DC,
placed North African cuisine/flavors atop its global flavors ranking in
the "What's hot 2019 culinary forecast." Tajine, a stew, was one example.
West African cuisine/flavors came in second. Fourth was Ethiopian/
Eritrean cuisine with examples being berbere and injera.
"Most consumers are now familiar with North African cuisine, but
some other regions are starting to trend now," says Roger Lane, marketing manager, savory flavors at Sensient Flavors, based in Hoff man
Estates, Illinois. "We've seen a surge in the flavors of other parts of
Africa, especially the eastern and southern parts of the continent,
places like Ethiopia, Somalia and South Africa. The cuisine is so new. So,
it's a perfect place for exploring new flavors."
Some consider harissa, which is a combination of spices common
in North Africa, to be the African ketchup, says Dax Schaefer, corporate
