Indonesia Frozen Food Market Trends

Increase in Demand for Convenience Foods

An important aspect fueling the expansion of Indonesia's packaged food business is the growing consumer appetite for convenience meals. Since packaged foods require minimal or no further preparation before eating, especially ready meals and frozen food, there has been an exponential rise in their popularity due to the convenience element. Ease in the availability of staple, seasonal, and regional food products has influenced the purchasing patterns of consumers. They are now placing frozen food on their list of daily consumables. Owing to the wider availability of seasonal ingredients all year round, there has been a steady growth in the demand for frozen food products in Indonesia.

The packed food includes canned food, packaged food or meals, frozen food, preserved food, and instant products. Frozen-ready meals appeal to consumers in Indonesia with hectic lifestyles, those who are trying to lose weight, and those who live alone and do not want to prepare a full meal. The presence of various global players in this country has led to wider availability of products. Furthermore, due to the increasing purchasing power, food safety and hygiene are considered by consumers in the country. These factors have given global players the potential to make their products available on retail shelves, as brands are often considered high-quality products.

The Frozen Meat and Fish Segments Contribute to the Maximum Revenue Share

The consumer preference for frozen meat is increasing in Indonesia, in part due to the hygiene issues associated with making fresh products available. According to UN Comtrade, in 2021, the imports of meat to Indonesia amounted to USD 965.34 million, as compared to the meat imports in the previous year, which were valued at USD 710.54 million. The popularity of protein diets has made meat and fish all the more popular, and seafood, in particular, is emerging as an important source of export earnings for the country. With the increase in bilateral and international agreements regarding the expansion of agriculture and food trade, the frozen meat and fish segments are expected to grow during the forecast period. These products exhibit a longer shelf life, ranging from six months to a year, making them convenient for export to the farthest of places. Indonesian companies export various types of fish meat after processing and adding preservative materials according to international standards and consumer demand.
