Boom times for gourmet, packaged, bakery and dairy
The gourmet food market in India has been experiencing significant growth in recent years. Food tastes in the country have shifted from traditional to global due to a shift in consumer preferences. Ever increasing demand is observed for a variety of high-quality food products, sophisticated tastes, and premium products across the market.
Meanwhile, demand for packaged foods is expected to double in the Indian market over the next 5–10 years – including formats for packaged bakery and dairy products, canned and frozen processed foods, ready-to-eat meals, diet snacks, meats, health products, and beverages. In particular, packaged food use is increasing in urban areas due to a high level of income, a high standard of living and convenience.
India’s bakery market is being driven by growing demand for biscuits and cookies, rapid advancement in technology, and increasing population. India is considered the third largest biscuit manufacturing country in the world and one of its leading biscuit exporters today.
The final key trend focuses on the dairy industry, given that India is the leading producer and consumer of milk across the globe, and is expected to grow by about 9–11 per cent in 2022. Increased per capita consumption of milk and milk products is driving improvement in quantity and quality of production across this segment.
