The processed food products industry is gradually growing as a result of the high demand for convenience foods with improved lifestyles. European Union was the largest importer of processed food products in the world, accounting for USD 462.3 billion in 2017, followed by the US, which recorded USD 117.2 billion, and China USD 64.9 billion. China has witnessed a 10.2% of CAGR on the imports of processed since 2015-2017, which was faster as compared to other developing countries. In the near future, the processed food products market is estimated to grow continuously due to factors, such as diet upgrades, resulting from a rise in incomes, as well as growing health.
