Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Cold Cuts Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global cold cuts market: Boar's Head, Hormel Food, Kraft Heinz, Seaboard, and Tyson Foods

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Bar-S Foods, Daniele, Kunzler, Blue Grass Quality Meats , Bryan Foods, Smithfield Foods, Frick's Quality Meats, Royal Foodstuff, Bridgford Foods, Golden Bridge Foods, Black Bear, Applegate, Cris-Tim, Raspini, Vantastic Foods, LINCK, and Flavours and Colours of Biodiversity

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The popularity of organic packaged food is increasing as consumers are beginning to value healthy, natural, and safe food products more. Consumers perceive organic food as healthy as the origin and quality of the ingredients that are used in the preparation of these products is usually verified by various agencies. Organic products are mostly priced higher in comparison to conventional products. The premium price is due to the comparatively high production and distribution costs as well as consumers’ willingness to pay extra for these products. The additional or premium cost associated with organic production is passed throughout the supply chain and paid by the end-consumer at last. In 2014, the US accounted for 43% of the total retail sales of organic food globally and Germany accounted for 13%. Seeing the growing preference for organic food (including packaged food products), players like Applegate Natural & Organic Meats, VANTASTIC FOODS, Flavours and Colours of Biodiversity, and Aalbaek Specialiteter are coming up with more varieties of organic cold cuts.”

According to the report, the demand for convenient and packaged products has been on a rise since the last decade. Many countries around the world have experienced development and urbanization in the recent years. Urbanization is inculcating new eating habits, and consumers are developing a palate for international food. The urbanized population is demanding ready-to-eat packaged foods that are convenient to consume. Thus, various super and hyper markets are storing chilled and packaged food materials.

Further, the report states that players in the global cold cuts market face issues complying with the stringent rules and regulations imposed by the authorities in the countries they operate in. These regulations pertain to permits, the entry of new players, the launch of new products, and the expiry dates for certain products. The production of cold cuts suitable for export to countries like the US is difficult as the players need to follow lengthy procedures involving strict rules. In recent years, many revisions have taken place in government rules and regulations to control the presence of pathogenic microorganisms such as listeria monocytogenes and salmonella in cold cuts. For instance, in countries like Canada, Canadian Food Inspection Agency has increased regulations regarding testing and reporting of listeria in processing plants that make cold cuts.
