From a statement issued by the Costa Rican Foreign Trade Promotion Office (Procomer):

Five factors have been pointed out as playing an important role in the food industry in 2015

The market researcher Innova Market Insights noted that there are five factors which will play an important role in the food industry in 2015: clean labels, convenience for amateur chefs, marketing for millennials, snacks, and fats and good carbohydrates.

Clean labels: about a quarter of the food and drinks that were launched and were monitored by Innova have "clean labels". The growing concern about the lack of definition of a "natural product" has created a need for specific detail and clarity in labeling in order to be more transparent with consumers.
