Food preservatives are classified as natural and chemical preservatives, with chemical preservatives currently accounting for a large market share. Preservatives are used in foods such as oil & fat, bakery & Confectionary, Fruits and Vegetables, dairy & frozen products, meat, poultry & seafood, savory snacks, and beverages. The Spanish preserves industry focuses on four types of food i.e. fish, vegetables, meat and fruit, and consumers are increasingly moving towards natural preservatives with limited reliance on chemicals.
