Key Market Trends

Freeze-Dried Fruits Hold the Predominant Share

Food products, such as fruits, are highly heat-sensitive, and their chemical composition, structure, texture, taste, and nutrient content change drastically and quickly when exposed to higher temperatures. Food preservation methods, such as drying, boiling, and smoking, require high-temperature exposure, which is not suitable for quickly perishable food items, such as fruits. Owing to this, freeze-drying is considered a superior procedure for the preservation of delicate fruits, such as raspberries. The freeze-drying process locks in their tanginess and keeps the fiber structure intact. This factor, coupled with the seasonal availability of fruits, such as strawberries and raspberries, propels the market growth. Manufacturers are focusing on achieving various certifications with an aim to gain consumer/client trust and interest. Chaucer Foods Ltd offers Halal and Kosher-certified freeze-dried mango in powder, slices, pieces, and organic formats with a shelf life of typically 12-24 months.

Competitive Landscape

The market is fragmented and competitive at the same time as different companies master in different fields of expertise. The companies that are into fruits and vegetable freeze-drying are mostly not involved in the freeze-drying of dairy products, coffee and tea, and so on. Thus, it creates a wide base for the manufacturers to compete on in order to prove their superiority. Thus, to cater to the vivid demands of the Chinese culture and to support the export trade, manufacturers are establishing multi-functional lines, especially for fruits and vegetable freeze-drying as they can be easily dried using the same processing line. Conversely, meat and seafood, though related, are tough to process on the same line due to their typical smells, which might get incorporated into one another at the time of processing.
