Fortification is a process of adding a nutrient or ingredient that was not found naturally in that product. In North America, women health is a major driver for the fortified food industry. Concern regarding bone and pregnancy health is becoming increasingly important for fortified packaged food. Many brands of dairy products and bread focus on bone health, emphasizing calcium content. These products particularly appeal to older American consumers who wish to obtain the maximum quantity of nutrients in their food. Thus, North America plays a vital role in the development of this market, with focus on innovation of ingredients.
The fortified food industry is segmented based on the ingredients, applications and geography. The ingredients segment mainly consists of vitamins and minerals, which are further classified as vitamin A, D, C and iron, iodine, folic acid and zinc, respectively. By application, the market for fortified food and beverages is segmented as cereals, dairy, confectionery and infant products, to name the major ones. However cereals and confectionery are the major market share holders.
North America is the major market for the vitamin fortified and mineral enriched food industry. Therefore to stimulate growth, manufacturers are working towards varying their formulas in order to include newly popular ingredients based on consumer demand and market opportunities. Nestle, Industrial Lala and PanificaciÃ³n Bimbo are the major players in this region, with value shares of 16%, 11% and 10%, respectively. Nestle is particularly strong in fortified milk formula with its Nan and Nido brands, which are widely popular. Industrial Lala is strong in fortified dairy products with its Lala range, while PanificaciÃ³n Bimbo is strong in fortified bakery products with its flagship brand, Bimbo. The market of fortified food is considered to be a niche market and hence high pricing and stringent regulations restrain the new players from entering the market.
