Key Market Trends

Hazelnut Spreads is the Fastest Growing Segment

Hazelnut spreads are the second-largest segment, with only almond spreads ahead of it. Hazelnuts also contribute to chocolate and other nut-based spreads. Consumers seeking various healthy options of spreads are also boosting the hazelnut market. Consumers who follow plant-based diets are the major users of nut-based spreads. The major players use this opportunity to produce protein-rich spreads from plant sources. The high sugar content of the hazelnut chocolate spreads has negatively impacted the market as the consumers are becoming more health-conscious and are looking for low sugar substitutes. Consumers majorly drive hazelnut-based products with heart diseases as hazelnut, an antioxidant-rich product, is linked to a reduced risk of developing heart disease. Besides, the rich hazelnut flavor of the nut spread is another factor for its high demand.
