When are peaches ready to pick? What month is best for asparagus? Why are oranges called a winter fruit if I can buy them in July? If you asked the average consumer what is currently in season, the chances are you will be met with deafening silence.

Astonishingly, there are approximately 40,000 varieties of bean in the world, and they are as important a source of protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals today as they have been for centuries. The common bean – or Phaseolus Vulgaris L. to give it its Latin name – is widely recognized to have originated from two separate ecogeographical areas, namely Mesoamerica and the Andes, and has since spread globally to become a day-to-day foodstuff that is truly worth celebrating.

Aside from tried-and-true water, beer is one of the oldest beverages in the history of humankind. The development of cereals for foodstuffs is the most likely source of its origins. The wild yeasts present in the air would start the fermentation process when the cereals themselves became wet, making pioneer craft brewers among those that were living around 12,000 years ago. It was doubtless a happy by-product of what was likely a basic diet, and a product that has been enjoyed ever since by each generation that has followed.

Biscuits. If there is a food item more synonymous with a treat, then we don’t know what it is. They are versatile, delicious and come in such a wide variety of shapes and sizes that there is literally something for everybody. A treat and inclusive – no wonder they have been given their very own National Day, which will be celebrated on May 29.

Single person? Enter single-serve. These smaller size types of products are increasingly trendy, and they are certainly on the rise considering that single unit households make up nearly a third of all households in the EU28, according to 2017 figures. Time is of the essence in consumers’ busy lives and brands must be savvy to their needs in order to gain maximum traction with their products housed in metal packaging. Easy to grab and consume on the move, they allow for delicious meals to be put together without the problem of excess waste creeping into the equation.

On March 21, we are celebrating International Fragrance Day, a full 24 hours dedicated to the billions of olfactory experiences that are possible in our day-to-day environment. Not all are perfume-related of course, and each one of us has a fragrance or scent that transports us to a place in time – the smell of paint freshly applied to a garden fence, for example, or the heady aroma of just-mown grass.
