Quirky cafes and food from Peru: the red-hot trends for start-ups

People in cafe

A new report has suggested that quirky cafés, 3D printed products and Peruvian food are trends that should be exploited by UK start-ups this year. Small business website Startups.co.uk has picked 14 'erupting' trends, which are set to become hot business opportunities over the next 12 months. High-growth areas include cycling safety accessories such as the fashionable Hiplok bike lock, high-protein products for those doing high-intensity exercise, and 'free from' foods for increasingly niche diets. Companies House start-up registrations are set to soar beyond 600,000 and the emergence of Peruvian cuisine could be a lucrative niche for new entrepreneurs, the study found. Martin Morales, of Soho Peruvian restaurant Ceviche, said there had been an 'explosion of interest' in the cuisine.
