The growing middle-class population and the availability of products from international players in the region lead to the increased demand for freeze-dried foods. Moreover, consumers in the country are opting for freeze-dried products as they have become an easy meal choice, are convenient, and provide a long shelf life. Food created from natural resources is receiving a lot of attention in the region.

Additionally, they are increasingly substituting natural tastes and colors for synthetic flavors and preservatives.

The market is primarily driven by rising expenditure on food and beverage, introducing products with longer shelf lives, increasing impulse purchasing, and growing demand for convenience foods that can be prepared quickly due to a shortage of available time.

The active lifestyle of people in the country makes them opt for freeze-dried foods.

Frozen lamb and frozen mutton accounted for respectively 52 and 47 percent of Australian sheepmeat imports to Greater China in 2021.
