Key Market Trends

Fruit-Based Spread Holds The Largest Market Share

To augment consumers’ interest, new sweet spread products are being launched in the British market with an emphasis on premium qualities and eco-awareness attributes, such as "vegetarian" and "environment-friendly packaging." 
In terms of health and wellness, the sweet spreads are not so healthy products and therefore the Europeans are shifting to Fruit Spreads. They may not be so healthy but are definitely better than chocolate spread or any other spread. Also, the Europeans are more into using fruit spreads during their baking operations rather than breakfast.
