Key Market Trends

Increasing Demand for Vegetable Pickles across Globe

Vegetable pickles are prepared using one among these main methods: lactic acid fermentation of vegetables, and with or without the addition of salt for the preservation of vegetables in vinegar.  Vegetables, such as cucumber, cabbage, olive and onion are fermented by lactic acid bacteria which can grow in low concentrations of salt.  Vegetables pickled in acetic acid (vinegar) would include addition of salt and sugar. As they do not ferment, they posses unique flavor and texture. Also, vegetable pickles with claims, such as gluten-free, kosher,  etc., are gaining more popularity among the global population. Hence key players are coming up with an extended product portfolio. Hotties Spicy Sriracha Pickle Chips were launched by Rick’s Picks in March 2012. This shelf-stable product is made with in-season vegetables from local farms and claims to be low in sodium, cholesterol-free, fat-free, and gluten-free. These pickles are perceived to be natural and healthy food as a side dish, especially in North American and European countries.
