Market driver: increasing demand for food products with long shelf lives

The increasing demand for food products with long shelf lives is a major driver for the global packaged dehydrated food market. Busy lifestyles and the rising working population have led to the rise in demand for packaged dehydrated food products as they can be stored for long periods and yet retain their freshness.

According to a senior analyst at Technavio for food research, “The popularity of ready-to-eat foods are growing among end-users. Packaged dehydrated foods are considered to be of good taste, and the lack of moisture helps in storing them for a long time. These products retain their original flavor and nutritional benefits. Similarly, frozen, dried products can be stored for a long period.”
