Hike in Consumption of Processed Foods and Confectionery
The prime factor driving fats and oils market is the increased consumption of processed foods, confectionary and ready to drink beverages. Asia-pacific accounts for largest share in palm oil in terms of production as well as its consumption. The primary driver in consumption is its use in cooking and its role in food processing. Many factors have led to an increased demand for processed and packaged food, encouraging food producers to increase production and invest heavily in food processing equipment and machinery.
The increased demand for olive oil, LDL lowering, and HDL-increasing oils and fats are the primary reasons for the shift in the global oils and fats market. China’s soybean production is projected to see increased harvested area, as policy changes reduce incentives to plant corn. Argentina’s soybean crop is projected at 57.0 million tons, up 0.5 million from the revised 2015/16 crop. The rise in the consumption of soybean is due to its health index. In the global context of health, diet, and physical activity, the European oils and fats sector strives to improve the fatty acid profile of oils and fats formulations (reduction of TFA and SAFA and an increase of MUFA and PUFA) and develop healthier alternatives for all food applications. McDonald’s has urged FSSAI to establish cooking oil standards.
