Europe Remains the Largest Region in Baker's Yeast Market

The European bakery market are well-established in terms of the supply chain, product array, distribution channels, and consumer preferences. Innovations and new product development are increasingly observed in the indulgence categories, like cakes, pastries, and cookies. Increasing demand for processed foods, coupled with increasing awareness about health-conscious products is significantly propelling the growth of the baker's yeast market in the European region, which is in turn, driving the growth of the market studied. Several health-claims associated with bakery products, like “organic”, “no additives/preservatives”, and “low/no/reduced allergen”, etc., have been attracting higher sales, as the baby-boomer generation is extremely health conscious, and thus, they tend to dictate the purchasing scenario of bakery products in the region.
