Key Market Trends

Increasing Demand for Seasoned and Flavoring Salt

Consumers trying to get more creative with cooking and experiment beyond traditional pairings, are opting for flavored salts. The flavored salts are resulting in a flavor concoction that is more impactful than a seasoning blend. The increasing demand for foreign cuisines, such as Italian and French food, among consumers in emerging economies, due to rising westernization trends, has led to an increased usage of flavored salts. Consumers are purchasing seasoned and flavored salts from online channels, including company websites, such as The Meadow and third party sellers, like Amazon, due to the availability and accessibility of different varieties of the salts. The growing demand for hot and spicy fast food among young consumers have enabled food service restaurants to use flavored salts such as jalapeno salts in the regional processed meals.

Salts and Flavored Salts Market1

Asia-Pacific being the largest as well as the fastest growing region

China Salt Industry Group Co., Ltd (former China National Salt Industry Corporation) controls a major market share and production of edible salt in the country. It is the largest salt enterprise in Asia and second-largest in the world, with the production of 18 million metric ton of various salt products, in 2017. The Japanese consumers do not use a huge amount of spices or seasonings in their food, despite their love and appreciation for food, thus, natural sea salts that are made by boiling down Japanese sea water are preferred by the consumers in the country. For instance, The Salt Industry Center of Japan is a public foundation involved actively in performing investigative research on salt and supplying household cooking salt with 99% sodium content in the country.
