McCormick Announces Top Flavors And Food Trends For 2014 And Beyond





SPARKS, Md., Dec. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Marking its 125 th year as a food industry innovator, McCormick & Company, Incorporated (NYSE: MKC), a global leader in flavor, kicked off a yearlong celebration today of the tastes that bring us together with the unveiling of its McCormick ® Flavor Forecast ® 2014: 125 th Anniversary Edition.

The report, developed annually by McCormick experts around the world, highlights five top food trends and more than a dozen emerging flavors predicted to impact the way we eat in the coming years. First launched in 2000, this anniversary edition explores how today's unparalleled connectivity is driving faster-than-ever adoption of new trends and tastes around the globe.

One such trend is the growing obsession with chilies. "Everywhere we looked, people have a growing fascination with the delicious range of flavors and heat chile peppers deliver," said Kevan Vetter, McCormick's Executive Chef. "In the U.S., cooks are embracing exciting new varieties like the aji amarillo from Peru, which is prized for its sizzling heat and surprisingly full-bodied, fruity notes."

These emerging trends and flavors highlighted in the McCormick Flavor Forecast 2014 offer a taste of what's next on the global menu:
