How popular are food trucks these days? Smithsonian Magazine recently declared America to be a “ food truck nation.” According to Mobile-Cuisine, meanwhile, there are currently 4,130 food trucks in the US generating annual total revenue of $1.2 billion — a 12.4 percent increase over the past five years.
The National Restaurant Association declared “sustainable seafood” to be number nine on its list of the “Top 20 Food Trends” for 2016. Also making the cut? “Locally sourced meats and seafood,” as well as “environmental sustainability”.
All three add up to one major takeaway for forward-thinking restaurant owners and managers. If you’re not aiming to show off your commitment to serving up sustainable seafood, you’re falling short of fulfilling some key requirements among today’s diners.
