What are some current consumer trends in the commercial baking industry? What baked goods do bakeries sell the most?

In recent years, consumer preferences have shifted away from standard bakery items. Instead, consumers have opted for artisan breads and specialty baked goods because they are looking for more variety, higher quality products, fresher ingredients, and unique flavors. 

Artisan breads and specialty baked goods often use more natural ingredients, and they don’t contain the preservatives that may be found in traditional bakery items, which many consumers find attractive. 

Additionally, artisan breads and specialty baked goods are typically made using more traditional methods which can give them a unique complexity in taste that is not found in other products. Finally, the presentation of artisan breads and specialty baked goods can often be more visually appealing than traditional bakery items.
