Growing Processed Food Market Accentuating the Market for Preservatives
Food preservatives manufacturers are seeing an increased demand from food manufacturers to preserve freshness, safety, taste, appearance, and texture of processed foods. The growing market for processed food compliments the growth of the food preservative market in Africa. The changing lifestyle of people has also impacted their food habits. Consumers prefer convenience food, as it has high flavor profile and shelf life. In developed countries, like the United States, processed food accounts for about 50% of the daily diet.

Natural preservatives account for about 17% of the total share of Africa food preservative market. A majority of natural preservatives in use now, are antioxidants that are found in a majority of fruits and vegetables. These compounds act as free radical scavengers and bacterial growth inhibitors.
