Key Boosters and Top Challenges
With the world currently on a strict lockdown post the COVID-19 outbreak and people mostly stuck at home, frozen food and ready-to-cook products are flying off the racks. Although SARS-CoV-2 has disrupted supply chains, sales of frozen foods have observed an incredible surge, since the panic stricken public has been stockpiling on all the essential items. As a result, the frozen food market share has been performing well following the onset of the novel coronavirus. The fact that frozen food are able to retain the nutritional value for a long period, and in turn helps bring down the number of times consumers have to visit the shop or outlet, also works in favor of the market.
Over the year, the preference for quality regardless of the high price has risen significantly, while traders are increasingly focusing on efficient monitoring of frozen food so that they maintain their nutritional importance. Although the COVID-19 impact on the cold chain supply has been significant, the evolving buying patterns of the consumers with more inclination towards health has helped the frozen food markshaeet size develop faster than expected. The increasing employment rate worldwide has also steered consumers towards RTE/Ready-to-Eat foods since these types take less cooking time. Add to it the hectic lifestyle; consumers are more interested in purchasing frozen foods like meat, ready meals, fish and frozen potatoes.
Since the pandemic and the scarcity of workforce in the food industry, leading market firms have been putting additional emphasis on maintaining continuous stock supply to hypermarkets and supermarkets. These firms are also taking up strategies such as mergers, collaborations, acquisitions and product portfolio expansion to boost their market presence around the globe.
A case in point, in August 2020, Nestle expanded its presence in the frozen food industry by launching Life Cuisine, a frozen food range that caters to mainly consumers with meatless/plant-based, high-protein, low-carb or gluten-free lifestyles.
