Food, health, and wellness in retrospect: The top news, tech, and questions you asked in 2018

February 13, 2019 | State of the Market Report

Over 2018, we saw major changes across the food and health value chain, from the introduction of new crops developed with gene editing to progress on growing meat without needing animals. It was an eventful year, which can make it difficult to keep perspective on the major changes, and avoid getting caught up in day-to-day happenings. This report offers a retrospective view of 2018 - the news we covered and what it means for your business, the top developers our analysts feel are worth engaging with, and the major questions that you and your competitors asked our analyst team. It also helps frame the themes we anticipate covering in 2019 and beyond
