The influence of Western culture has brought in the concept of processed foods strongly as young adults have a hectic lifestyle and find it difficult to find spare time to cook healthy food for themselves.

The increasing urbanization and industrialization have been educating more and more people about the latest technology and healthy eating concepts which has further been driving people to adopt veganism and other healthy and sustainable consumption patterns, especially in the large towns. However, despite the suburban people being still unaware of the concepts, the internet is playing a crucial role in passing on the information, which is likely to surge the demand for more clean label foods in the country, in turn, regulating the market of clean label ingredients in the country in the near future.

Competitive Landscape
