COVID-19 accelerating the desire for healthy nutrition

Food Ingredients market report

The marginality levels reached by the players in the food ingredients industry remain extremely interesting, as does the expected market growth. With this in mind, we believe that the appeal of this sector will remain high in the years to come.

The COVID-19 pandemic may have reduced demand in many industries, but the nutritional ingredients market is stronger than ever due to perceived healing properties and consumers’ desires to further protect their well-being. In this report, Oaklins’ food ingredients specialist Michele Manetti explains the aspects driving the market, from factors such as macro trends and a desire for sustainable products. While the current pandemic situation will eventually change, some of these elements will continue to have a longer-lasting and positive effect on the sector.

The growing awareness of the benefits of a healthy and balanced diet for physical and mental well-being was already a relevant trend in the industry before the COVID-19 emergency. The current crisis situations could eventually consolidate this positive movement and increase the consumer base of nutritional and functional ingredients.
