International Concepts: Health-Focused Chains
In this month's International Concepts, we're exploring healthy concepts abroad that could translate to U.S. menus and product lines like functional snacks (think seed bars and energy balls), convenient-format smoothie and grain bowls, and flexitarian dishes. Also discover how some international operators are even leveraging on-trend ingredients associated with beauty products such as activated charcoal and collagen.
International Concepts brings you restaurant and foodservice chain activity from around the globe, highlighting up-and-coming concepts, trends, and ethnic flavors. Each issue covers six chains in a single market, complete with menu examples.
