And we’re gonna get to it right now. All right, welcome back to and if this is your first video, welcome to This is the premier food entrepreneur channel on YouTube. We talk about everything food and of course business. Food businesses and helping you get your food product onto store shelves or show you how to start a food business and make money selling food. So I’m gonna get into the top five food businesses to start in 2020. If you are looking to start off the new year with a brand new career or a new business and you are a millennial, you are gonna love this list. Because these are five specific groups of food products that will only continue to grow enormously over the next 10 to 20 years. So if you wanna get in something like these one of five businesses you definitely want to listen to this entire video and figure out which one you may want to get into. Now if you want to make your own food product, all five of these have co-packers and also have private label companies that can assist you by creating and manufacturing them for you if that’s what you wanna do. Or if you simply wanna resell food in the top five categories I’m gonna give you you can also do that as well. So let’s get to it, I’m gonna give you from five down two what I believe is the

 number 01

 food business to jump into starting next year. So let’s take a look at this list. And I’m gonna give you reasons why, by the way. I’m not just gonna give you five really quick lists of things, but I’m gonna tell you why their so important and why their gonna continue to grow and of course why you need to be a part of it. All right,

 number 02

 is gonna be gluten-free food products. Now gluten-free if you’re not familiar with it is actually a food product that most people who suffer from celiacs disease, it is actually a disease that their system cannot break down the gluten in certain products so they have to eat gluten-free. Why is this a category that I’m mentioning? Because it is growing rapidly. In the U.S. alone there’s over estimated, over three million people who have to eat a gluten-free style diet. Now with that in mind you gotta keep in mind also the baby boomers also are becoming more and more aware of their gluten intolerance and baby boomers are one of the largest population percentages in the United States. And of course as they get older their systems are not gonna be able to break that down and they will become diagnosed with, of course, celiacs disease and needing some kind of gluten-free diet. Now what does that mean for you? Well there is an enormous variety of food products from snacks to breads to main dishes and dinners and those types of things even. That are gluten-free or becoming manufactured gluten-free. So it’s not designated to one specific type of food. There’s a huge variety, a big menu of products that can be put out into the market place that can be gluten-free. That opens up more opportunity for you as a food entrepreneur. Definitely, especially if you’re a millennial and you’re looking for a new type of career of business, gluten-free food products are somethin’ you need to definitely look into.

Number 03,

 sugar free. Sugar free is definitely something that’s gonna continue to grow of the next 10 to 12 years. Actually it’s gonna continue to grow period over the next 30 or 40 years because there are millions of people who are now being diagnosed as diabetic. But it’s not only that. Sugar-free products in general are good for most people who are health conscious. There’s a lot of people who just want to reduce their sugar intake so they don’t necessarily need to be diabetic or diagnosed as having diabetes to have a sugar-free lifestyle. Or if they just wanna reduce their calories. There’s a lotta people who are super healthy that simply want to take in less sugar. So sugar free products from cookies to snacks to breads and to crackers and to all kinds of products that can become sugar-free, that is a food product category that’s going to continue to grow period. No matter how many people are diagnosed with diabetes or people who just wanna be more health conscious and simply just cut back on sugar. So that is a gigantic part and segment of the population. Now one of the other statistics that I read that was very interesting was that one in four people are actually diabetic or being diagnosed as having diabetes or some form of diabetes just in the U.S. alone. So the sugar-free category is something that you definitely wanna look into if you wanna get into creating a food business for yourself. Now again, as I mentioned in the opening of this video, all of these products have co-packers and private label companies that can actually manufacture these products for you under your own brand and you can even sell it on Amazon under the FBA program or simply as a private labeled product. All right,

 number 04

Millennials are having a lot of children. They are having a lot of kids. And because of that most millennial parents are actually quite aware of nutrition and wanting to have their kids eat healthier, non-processed or minimally processed and foods that are more healthier. So number three is healthy kids’ snacks. Specifically snacks and here is the reason why. Bein’ a father my own, having kids I’m well aware of how much food that kids can consume. Especially when they reach that eight to 10-year-old age. Having snacks around the house is something that is every day consumed. Every single day kids are consuming snacks. The healthier the snacks are, the more appealing they are, parents will buy them like crazy. And of course being snacks, they get consumed quicker than normal meals or lunches or dinners or breakfasts. Snacks are always on the go. You bring ’em to sporting events. You bring ’em to birthday parties. Anywhere and everywhere where there’s a group of kids. Snacks will get eaten very quickly. So creating a line of healthy snacks. Even if it’s energy bars. If it happens to be some healthy low-sugar crackers or cookies that are prepackaged in snack sizes and the list goes on and on. But in general, healthy kids’ snacks is a line of food, a category that’s going to continue to grow always. Especially with parents. Millennial parents who have more than one child. They can tell you first hand that going through snacks is something that is never gonna go away any time soon. Only gonna grow.

Number 05.

Organic anything. Literally anything. The organic industry has exploded to an annual sales of over 4.6 billion dollars in the U.S. alone. That’s just in the category of organic food products. 4.6 billion. That is huge. So if you are looking to create a food business or start one, I would say out of all of them, my actually, my interest lately had been in the organic category. We are looking to create a line of organic food products and it is a bit of a challenge to do. I’m not gonna lie to you. It’s not something you can do overnight. But even if you start with one single product, many of these small startup food businesses that specialize in either healthy or very minimally processed foods or their organic or they’re gluten-free or sugar-free, many of these small startups are being sold to these big companies for hundreds of millions of dollars. I kid you not. I’ve actually done two or three videos on my channel here that actually talk about some success stories of small food businesses that have turned out to be really quite lucrative when they’ve been sold to bigger companies. So organic anything. If you’re talkin’ about, if you wanna get into organic produce, if you wanna start something local and sell to grocery stores, organic produce is always gonna be growing at a rapid pace. Anything organic that’s shelf-stable products. I’ve seen even a full line of gummy snacks. Gummy snacks that are made from all natural products that kids devour but there’s no junk in them. So organic anything is definitely a viable product over the next 10 to 15 years. So lastly it brings me to

 number 06.

And it is supplements. Now you may be saying, “Well Damian, that’s not exactly “a food product.” You’re right. But supplements covers a vast variety of products from actual supplement tablets and pills with a lot of natural herbs and roots that are now coming out that are being used as supplements to everything to protein bars. Meal replacement bars. Powder proteins. Dry dehydrated natural vegetables that are now becoming powdered supplement super foods that they’re blending a lot of varieties of dry powderized vegetables together creating healthy shakes and drinks. So there’s a huge variety of products. And again, this one I came across, there was actually four companies that I found that offered specifically private labeled and co-packing of this type of product. Yes, you can actually start a supplement business without actually making supplements yourself. You can create a business by having a private label company put your name on it and basically ship it where you want. Now I make it sound simple, but of course yes, with any business there are a few hurdles to jump through and get over and then you’ve of course gotta make yourself legitimate and all of that good stuff. Don’t get me wrong, this gonna something you start over night. But these five types of food businesses for 2020 are only gonna continue to grow. So if you wan to get in on food business of some kind and you happen to be a millennial, and I specifically am choosing that demographic by the way, because millennials are opening their own businesses out of every generation, they’re actually one of the largest entrepreneur generations ever. It’s amazing the amount of businesses being opened by millennials so this is something that could be much more appealing
