Key Market Trends

Demand for Packaged and Convenience Food

A rapidly rising population and greater levels of urbanization in India have boosted the demand for processed food products, thus, driving the demand for food ingredients. In Asian countries, like India and China, with greater disposable incomes and busy lifestyles, the demand for packaged, processed and ready-to-eat foods are increasing. The manufacturers of food emulsifiers are seeing an increased demand from food manufacturers to preserve the freshness, safety, taste, appearance, and texture of the processed foods. All food emulsifiers are required to be approved by appropriate authorities and organizations must ensure strict limits on added amounts and types of emulsifiers in processed foods. Every emulsifier must be included in the ingredients listing on a package to ensure choice for the convenience-demanding consumers.
