But in Star Trek they have replicators! They can replicate fresh fruit and raw meat and grains and all kind of perishables like poof!-- fresh, no need for the food to be subjected to prehistoric techniques of preparation and storing.

In TOS Kirk is seen to eat small colored cubes. Is it possible THAT properly represents the food of the future, replicated nutrition from pure energy, unrestricted by storage and conservation requirements?
Well as you say in TNG they have replciatrs and can therofre replicate any meal they want so long as the pattern is in the database. Before replicators they would still have the same issues we have today. long term storage of food for deep space missions were resupply might not be easy or possible.
