United Kingdom to Drive the Regional Market

In the United Kingdom, the changes in traditional meal patterns are driving the demand for convenience and on-the-go foods and snacks. This has fueled market growth in the country. Fruits, vegetables, and dairy products together account for the major share in the European market. The demand for spray-dried ingredients sourced from fruits, vegetables, and dairy-based products, like avocadoes, berries, mangoes, apple, milk, etc., is high in the United Kingdom, as they form an important part of the preparation of local cuisines and staple food, such as bakery products like cakes and pastries.

International brands operating in the United Kingdom, such as Camilk, Arla, and Nestle, are also offering innovative products, which is gradually gaining traction in the country.
