According to the report, there has been a rise in the demand for processed foods due to the improving economic conditions across the developed countries. This growth is accompanied by an increase in disposable incomes in developing countries such as China, India, and Saudi Arabia. At present, consumers are inclined to buy protein-rich foods and prefer buying food products that have high nutritional value, quality, and long shelf life. Food and beverage companies are demanding enhanced and unique food processing machinery and solutions to meet their production requirements that help to differentiate their products. Countries like China and India are the largest producers of fruits and vegetables. These factors contribute to and influence the consumers who choose and demand a variety of products.
Further, the report states that processing and packaging extend the shelf life and preserves the quality of products. The equipment used for the packing of processed fruits and vegetables should have features such as easy cleaning and sanitary processing. For instance, the beverage sector is one of the end users of processed fruits as many beverage companies use the fruits for preparing fruit juices or jams. Such beverages regularly come in contact with various surfaces throughout the packaging line. Manufacturers prefer that the processing and packaging equipment that are designed must maintain strict hygiene standards. It is mandatory to ensure that such fruit and vegetable products are sterilized or treated so that microbial growth is avoided on the products.
