The rising health consciousness among the consumers and government regulations regarding the procurement of raw materials like vegetables, meat, etc. are restraining the growth of the ready-to-eat food market to some extent. Innovative product offerings in functional ingredients, convenience, and organic foods are expected provide a future growth opportunity in the sector.
