Market Trends of Wheat Flour Industry

This section covers the major market trends shaping the Wheat Flour Market according to our research experts:

Rising Demand for Organic Wheat Flour

The demand for organic foods has increased as these foods are produced in an agricultural system that provides food that is free from toxic pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, and genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Consumers across different parts of the global market are perceiving organic food as more nutritious and safe for the environment and human health due to the rising prevalence of several chronic diseases such as diabetes, cancer, and heart disorders, which in turn drive the demand for organic wheat flour. In response to the shift in consumer preferences, wheat flour manufacturers are also offering different packaging sizes of organic wheat flour for retail markets. For instance, in August 2021, Cascade Organic Flour expanded its line of retail flour products with the launch of 5-lb retail bags of organic all-purpose flour. In addition, the demand for organic packaged food such as bread, noodles, pasta, pizza, and other bakery products is further driving the demand for organic wheat flour in the industrial manufacturing sector.
