M.A.D.E. 2018 promotes health
Health, flavour, and sustainability are all growing trends! Consumers are looking for virtuous approaches and products. In keeping with these trends, the 2018 edition of M.A.D.E. will be dedicated to two main themes: Healthy Food and Healthy Planet. Exhibitors will promote these trends throughout the exhibition via tastings, events, and discussions in the TV studio.
3 needs are emerging in the Healthy food trend:
> Back to basics : a return to 100% natural additive-free products, with fewer ingredients and more transparency.
> Less is more : less fat, sugar, salt, calories, and gluten.
> More is more : more whole grains, protein, fibre, vegetables.

In recent years, various diets have emerged that highlight animal welfare and sustainability and promote the use of healthy plant products. These diets are increasingly popular.
Focus on the new eating habits of French people:
Strict vegetarianism: a diet that includes only plant foods. Strict vegetarians reject meat, fish, and seafood, as well as dairy products, eggs, and other products that have an animal origin (e.g., honey).
Veganism : a way of life and consumption that seeks to avoid any animal suffering and cruelty to animals whatsoever, whether for food, clothing, or any other purpose.
Flexitarism : a diet followed by people who are generally vegetarian, but who occasionally eat meat, fish, and other “animal products.” For example, flexitarians may follow a vegetarian or vegan diet at home but eat meat on special occasions, like when eating out or with friends.
"Healthy Planet" is a CSR that is extremely popular with consumers
Local chains, short cycles, cooperatives, organic traceability, tradition, responsible purchasing, fight against food waste ... In general, the French public has lost confidence in manufactured products. These days, they want transparency, authenticity, and traceability. They want to understand what they are buying, to know the history of the product and the producer. Consumers want to restore meaning to the act of buying a product, by putting the priority on criteria such as well-being, health, and quality ingredients in a product.
