THE TOP 20 MOST POPULAR FOOD HASHTAGS FOR TIKTOK 2024

As you may have already noticed, TikTok is showing your posts to a few of your followers. Yes, that’s right! most of your followers never get to see your posts.

Regardless of the industry, even the fastest-growing industries and some of the most followed brands on TikTok are having to spend money (boosting their posts) to reach their hard-earned followers on TikTok.

Marketers – obviously – do not like it and are stressed and cannot sleep properly at night time trying to find ways to bring sales from TikTok.

Professional marketers who have taken my marketing strategy training session or are subscribed to my exclusive newsletter, are already putting into practice some real & proven marketing techniques to increase their food business sales and do not rely on vanity hashtagging.

As a result, publishing popular food hashtags has become one of the biggest social media marketing distractions, especially for marketers or business owners who still need to improve their social media strategy, customer service or yet meet their business and marketing objectives.

Remember, the gains from popular food hashtags are super minimal compared to activating a real marketing strategy for your food business.

Not saying more, find below the most popular food hashtags on TikTok.

By 2050, there will be 9.7 billion people on Earth. One of our biggest challenges is how to produce enough food to feed growing populations. At the moment, 75% of the world’s food is produced from just 5 animals and 12 plants. The last pandemic has also shown the fragile food system is vulnerable to supply chain disruptions, diseases and weather. To feed growing populations, countries must produce more protein, more sustainably and from more sources.

WHY DO PEOPLE SHARE FOOD PHOTOS AND VIDEOS ON TIKTOK?

As food dishes and recipes have become a new form of art, delicate palettes and hungry consumers are ready to experience the unique food options, snap them and share them on TikTok.

Not only young people but all generations are looking for food and restaurant recommendations from experts, food sites and friends on TikTok. They find food photography a great way to document their experiences and enjoy the best eateries where they find the best food. This has a domino effect on profits as more people filling vacant tables means an increase in sales.

As trendy food becomes fashionable items, clever food retailers are catering to this hunger perfectly with unique foods and innovative dishes.

Their success does not rely on hashtags, it is all about product development. Hashtags are just a tool to further amplify the social media promotion of their new food creations.

Examples include:

  • The Dalgona Bobamisu, by the Burwood Hotel (Sydney, Australia). The Dalgona Bobamisu is a deconstructed tiramisu with boba pearls and a coffee foam called “dalgona”. The Dalgona trend had gone viral on TikTok during lockdown where people made the foamy coffee at home and the Burwood pub has now paid its tribute to the fad.

This dish always appears on social media because they look good and taste really good so customers come back to eat it over and over. I analyse our social media reach and our videos of some of our dishes have a lot of reach in America as well, so it’s quite global

But among their top sellers is their Nuclear Fire Noodles – a combination of spicy instant ramen, shoestring fries, crispy seaweed and their nuclear fire hot sauce that has foodies going wild. Customers who see their posters about them and their videos on TikTok get curious and want to try them. “It’s one of our biggest sellers and we have both the extreme version and the regular version” The pub also offers bubble tea-inspired cocktails for those craving something sweet after the firey noodles.

TikTok food-related videos can bring a young demographic to your food business and people still want to try new food locally and share the experience on TikTok.

People expect us to only have steaks and burgers and schnitzels, which we do have. But our East meets West menu is a huge point of attraction.” Ms Li said.

And with a hunger to explore locally on the rise, food lovers are gravitating to unique and lesser-known foods to eat and share.

Among them is Bubble Nini tea which combines the ever-popular bubble tea with a florist shop to create beverages that look as good as the bouquets they are surrounded by.

People on TikTok are also proving that the most shareable food videos don’t have to be expensive with affordable foods like Bengong’s Tea and Bakery’s yummy melon and strawberry bread and Mr Hot Dog’s delicious fried Korean corn cakes being a hit on TikTok.

CONCLUSION

The TikTok algorithm relies heavily on hashtags to categorise and discover food content.

Also, stay up-to-date with trending food-related hashtags to leverage the popular food right now and increase the chances of your food content reaching a wider audience and potentially for your food videos to go viral
