TikTok has a little bit of something for everyone, and the food industry is no exception. Whether you're a farmer, restaurant owner, foodie or anything in between you're sure to find millions of educational, funny, inspiring and mouthwatering videos.

If you aren't on TikTok or utilizing its vast library of influencers, it could be time to give it a try! Check out how TikTok is being used across the food system.

On the farm.

Farmers are using TikTok to increase business, connect with other farmers around the world and educate the general public on hot topics like animal welfare.

There's no shortage of farm life on TikTok. The top farm-related hashtags speak for themselves:

#FarmTok has over 5.2 billion views
#FarmTikTok has over 130 million views
#FarmerTok has over 81.6 million views

One popular creator on #FarmTok is Shay Myers, a 3rd generation onion farmer. Shay uses his platform to share videos with topics ranging from why farmers rotate crops to how to pick a great onion at the grocery store.

Another popular creator is Dr. Michelle, a dairy vet with 258 thousand followers, who shares educational videos with users like what it's like inside a dairy parlor and what additives you might find in your milk.

Roughly 43% of TikTok's global audience is between 18 and 24 years old and 32% are aged between 25 and 34.

A new favorite of foodies.

Social media has always been beloved by foodies and TikTok is no exception. Recipe and cooking videos continuously rank as one of the most popular content categories on TikTok with over 18 billion views as of July 2022.

Popular foodie creators like Morgan Hipworth and Colin Wingerter share recipe videos that are sure to make your mouth water and serve up some serious meal prep inspiration. Other popular foodies spend time reviewing meals from everywhere from fast food joints and food trucks to Michelin star restaurants.

Other creators dedicate their time to reviewing specific products. Whether it be the latest trendy item from Trader Joe's or a new sports drink, there's a creator on TikTok ready to review it. Creator Loryn Powell, a self-declared "seltzpert" has amassed 26.8 million likes and 877.6 thousand followers creating hard seltzer review videos.

The foodies of TikTok are also bridging cultures with their videos. After going viral on the app, the classic Mexican dish birria tacos have started appearing on menus across the US.
