Global Frozen Fruits & Vegetables Market - Overview

Frozen fruits and vegetables are packed below freezing point to preserve and extend their durability. Its market is gaining momentum and expanding rapidly, especially in recent years. This is due to the fact that they are readily available in the market and come at a lower cost. Consumers prefer frozen fruits and vegetables because they are healthier.

Through freezing techniques, the chances of the food having a chemical reaction are reduced significantly, and higher temperature ensures the stoppage of micro-organism development in it, which ensures higher shelf life.

Growth Drivers

Growing Popularity of Non-Seasonal Fruits and Vegetables is Boosting the Frozen Fruits and Vegetable Market

Frozen fruits & vegetables are securing traction among customers because of the various advantages they offer over freshly produced fruits & vegetables. The growing trend in the food and beverage industry for year-round availability of seasonal vegetables and fruits serves as a demand stimulant. Furthermore, the industry has been stimulated by growing awareness of the nutritional value of frozen fruits and vegetables, as well as an increasing trend of clean eating. Also, ever-increasing technological developments along with expanding cold storage chains in developing nations have led to the expansion of a regular supply of a network of frozen fruits & vegetables.

Developing Detail Infrastructure is Backing the Growth of Global Frozen Fruits and Vegetable Market

Restraints

Preference for Fresh and Natural Products May Hamper the Growth of Frozen Fruits and Vegetable Market

A higher percentage of the consumer base still prefers fresh and natural food products as they associate nutritional value with freshness. In 2018, the United States was the world's largest market for organic fresh fruits and vegetable products, followed by the European Union. The reason may be the widespread taboo surrounding frozen foods, as many people assume freezing is a chemical process that reduces nutritional value of the fruits and vegetables although the reverse is the case. This is having a negative impact on the growth of the frozen fruits and vegetables industry.
