The biggest trend in culinary travel today is the growing diversity of food tourist profiles, and how travel companies are adapting to that increasing segmentation. A growing awareness of this trend is changing how new and existing companies are developing and reimagining their products and services. Some examples include:
- The rise of meal sharing - Get Gone is an online platform that matches food tourists with local chefs, homeowners and tour leaders, much like Airbnb does for accommodations.
- Demand for culinary storytelling - Indagare Travel is a member-based travel community combining both travel content and travel agents services to help clients choose between over 250 destinations.
- Homecooking, Havana style - The culinary landscape in Havana has blossomed in the last few years, because it is now easier for Cubans to own their own businesses. Just 90 Miles culinary tours in Cuba is leveraging against this boom of local restaurants.
