A new decade dawns in less than three months (in most people’s eyes anyway). While an arbitrary landmark, it also coincides with (hopefully) a convincing end to this recession and a return to prosperity and growth … though not business as was usual.

The new decade brings a new set of priorities and challenges for the food & beverage industry. From governmental/regulatory changes, which could come any day now, to more gradual (though certainly not glacial) changes in consumer buying habits, the one constant remains change.

Food Processing asked its Editorial Advisory Board, contributors, readers and web site visitors what they foresaw as the biggest game-changers for 2010 and beyond. We got a wide diversity of opinion, but we managed to consolidate some and distill them down to the following eight. Several of them were written by regular contributors.

If you think we missed some, let us know. E-mail the editor at with your thoughts. If we get enough, we’ll print the comments in our December issue.
