I’m not sure how much ‘foresight’ this report offers to readers of this blog, but interesting to note that a research organization is covering biomimicry…

Biomimicry is the practice of drawing inspiration from nature to solve human problems and inspire innovation. A small but growing number of products now imitate natural plants and animals, with untapped opportunity for manufacturers to acknowledge the potential application of biomimetic techniques in their processes and products.

– Consider emerging opportunities and threats in the CPG market and gain insight into potential future consumer behavior.

– Identify interesting new and emerging concepts, products, and ideas on offer in retail, foodservice, online spaces, and beyond.

– Understand how new concepts and ideas fit into – or challenge – current consumer trends.

– Gain insight and inspiration for innovation programs and new product development.

Consumption is outstripping bio-capacity. As the pressure on the planet’s limited resources increases, interest in sustainability will only heighten. Therefore, bio-utilization – using biological ingredients in product formulations – is being increasingly replaced with more sustainable ways of obtaining natural ingredients.
