Trends are a pretty useful feature of Twitter that offer a glimpse of what people are talking about around the world.
And this week, people are talking food. More specifically, about the #FutureofFood and #NationalVegetarianWeek.
The Future of Food
When it comes to food security, consumers and the industry alike are practicing ways to hold down our food supply for years to come. It is currently estimated that by the year 2050, the global population will be around 9.6 billion. That projection, coupled with concerns about limited resources, hunger, climate change and obesity, has people talking.

Vegetarian food is exciting, flavourful and always very vibrant, whether it's the from supermarkets or a restaurant menu. So this week, consumers of the vegetarian community are sharing their favorite recipes and best ideas to incorporate more meat-free food into your diet.
