Key Market Trends

Increasing Demand for Bakery Products

Currently, bread is a food staple in many cultures across the globe, which is majorly driving the demand for baker’s yeast, as bread is typically made from wheat flour dough and baker’s yeast. Moreover, packed baked goods, such as cake, are expected to witness significant demand in the upcoming years, owing to the rising preference for eating packed cakes as snack, mainly among children across the globe. Furthermore, bread and bakery product sales have been driven by the ongoing surge in demand for free-from ranges and speciality breads and the impact of inflation on retail prices, which is further driving the demand for baker’s yeast in bread and bakery product application.
