Strategically Moving Toward Natural Ingredients

With the increasing food safety concerns in Egypt and food safety regulations by the National Food Safety Authority (NFSA) in January 2017, food markets are pressurizing manufacturing to adopt clean labels. The major restraint faced by the industry is the rising awareness about the ill effects of synthetic colors. This has triggered the demand for natural colors, which have high costs when compared to synthetic colors. The increasing disposable incomes and changing lifestyles in the country are driving the demand for processed foods. The stringent food standard regulations by FDA and several Egyptian regulatory bodies are proving to be a constraint for manufacturers, thus forcing them to look for alternatives in the form of innovations in natural colorants, which is expected to increase their application during the forecast period.
