Convenience products are the future
Factors such as hectic lifestyle, rapid urbanization, adoption of new lifestyle trends and food habits will drive the demand for packaged, ready-to-eat, and convenience food such as processed meat. Growth in food service and retail industry has led to increased supply of processed meat products. Demand for meat products has also been influenced by variety, prices and services that the food retail firms have been offering to their customers. Innovation in meat processing technologies has led to the introduction of diverse products in the market thus ensuring bigger consumer base. The growing demand for frozen food products across the globe will also drive the processed meat market.
Increasing obesity level due to high intake of processed food is the main factor which is hampering the adoption rate of processed meat.
