Investment is made annually to produce various food products. Even though there is intense competition in markets such as tea, canned, jams, coffee, etc., we still see new investments being made in these markets. Investment in these markets, in most cases, means getting involved in a fiercely competitive space. that limits profitability and reduces the return on investment rate. In the food industry, there are many attractive markets that are rarely paid attention to them. These are high-value markets that are mostly in the “raw materials” sector and are classified as B2B markets. The country’s need for food raw materials is more than for final products, new investments still emphasize the production of Final products. not raw materials. In the following, we will review some of the most attractive raw material markets in the food industry. and invite investors to pay attention to these markets as well.
This issue is important both at the national level and in terms of profitability and has a higher attractiveness.
The most attractive markets in the field of raw materials in the food industry include:
– Food enzymes, especially rennet (widely used in the dairy industry) and pectinase enzyme (widely used in the beverage industry): the trend of using enzymes in the food industry has a very high growth rate. and more than 100 different and commonly used enzymes are used in the food industry. This is while a limited number of specialized producers in this field are present in the country. and the country’s competitive potential in this field lags behind the world’s latest knowledge.
– Ascorbic acid: as an additive and product PH controller, it is one of the most commonly used raw materials in the food industry, medicine, cosmetics, etc., which is mainly imported from China. There is a misconception that importing this product is more justifiable than its domestic production, while in fact, there are many opportunities for investing in this product.
– Food colors: food colors that are used to produce almost all food products are mostly imported, and little investment has been made to produce food colors in the country. This is while the food color market in the country has very high attractiveness and its annual consumption gives it a high weight and financial value.
– Sodium benzoate: The preservative is anti-fungal but most of the country’s requirement is imported, and limited investment has been made to produce this product in line with global technology and quality.
