Food habits changed during the quarantine period and the closure of restaurants, and the dependence on preparing food at home and on delivering food through multiple delivery services increased. During the isolation period, interest in public health, the quality and cleanliness of foods, and the keenness to know their sources increased. The changes that occurred during the isolation period will continue after the era of "Corona"; Both from the consumer side and the industry itself.


Among the other trends that started their precursors before the era of "Corona"; Switching from meat to more vegetarian alternatives were part of the public health maintenance effort. The food industry has responded to this trend and other alternatives to meat have appeared, which are now increasingly popular. Consumers now find more plant-based foods on the menus of major food companies.


The quarantine provided a rare opportunity for the public to think about the sources of food and how it was manufactured and delivered to the consumer. The world is now moving from the stage of manufacturing meat on a massive scale to a balance between vegetarian foods and meat and a shift towards a meat industry that is not environmentally destructive and can be considered sustainable.


- New styles


The expectations that food experts exchange about the expected changes after the epidemic period and the new patterns that will prevail after that, generally agree on many shifts and trends in the future. These five trends are the most prominent indications of a future post-"Corona". The most important of these trends:


- "Delivery": It will generally increase the activity of food delivery to homes, but the new trend is towards ordering fine meals from restaurants prepared by famous chefs for home delivery. This pattern was not known before, and it is crystallizing due to the concern on the aspects of quality and cleanliness. The decline in the general income level and the loss of jobs also led to a decline in the general income.


- The trend towards alternatives to meat: the change of lifestyle during the period of "Corona" towards the consumption of vegetarian and organic food. And the closure of burger restaurants and fast food contributed to this. This trend will be transformed into a lifestyle in the future, with less reliance on meat and a shift towards healthier alternatives. And will contribute to the spread of this method the emergence of models of new restaurants that provide healthy menus that include meat alternatives and free of fat.


- Decline in the demand for restaurants: All previous trends of relying on "delivery" to preparing home meals will lead to a decline in the demand for restaurants. There are other factors, such as a decline in the level of public income, fear of aspects of hygiene, and the trend towards healthy meals that the consumer prepares himself and knows all its contents and the cleanliness of their preparation. And restaurants may be restricted to special occasions in the future. The decline also includes the elderly age groups, and the demand for fast food outlets will decrease among young people.
