"Good food is a good trend."

OFI’s team is continuously researching and evaluating the latest food trends and up and coming foods from around the world.  With extensive global travel experience and solid food manufacturing connections on 5 of 7 continents, we tap into what is happening in today’s markets and restaurants both at home and abroad, and bring these exciting, emerging trends to you.


We conduct a thorough analysis of any potential category, specific product or ingredient.   We start with a high level, macro analysis and progress into key item detail in order to develop the best and most successful strategy for your brand.  We then align your project to one of our many qualified manufacturers, and manage your program from concept to shelf.
