Europe is an important region for chilled processed food products. Chilled processed food industry gets impacted by several factors like social, cultural, economic, technological, etc. Critical elements of the operations in the chilled processed food business are logistics, efficiencies in supply chain, and traceability, among others. Chilled processed foods have to be stored at very low temperatures. Hence, commercial refrigerators and cooling systems are integral to ensure quality, maintain food properties and avoid microbial proliferation.
Such technology calls for huge capital investments by market operators. This poses a challenge for large-scale growth. Health scares (e.g. Avian Flu) also have a negative impact of sales. Consumers perceive processed ready-to-eat food as ‘stale’, high fat, high sugar, and laden with preservatives.
Europe chilled processed food industry is expected to grow on account of rising preference for healthy, convenience foods. Health and nutrition has become an important focus area in the overall food & beverages market. Cultural changes like higher percentage of working women and demand for superior quality food aid growth. Rising disposable incomes are increasing the affordability of chilled processed foods. Economic stability and growth also influence growth.
