The products are in high demand from several food service operators driven by their extensive application in general foods, snacks, commercial food service operations, and bakeries.

Surge in Industry Value Owing to Increased Sales Amid the COVID-19 Pandemic Period

The COVID-19 pandemic led to an escalation in the demand for processed and frozen foods. The period recorded an increase in product sales via e-commerce and online grocery platforms. These products included frozen fries, mashed potatoes, and others. However, the market was slightly affected on account of the shortage of raw materials and disruptions in the supply chain during the pandemic period.

McCain Foods Invests Heavily in Modern Packaging to Escalate Growth

An investment of USD 20 million was announced by McCain Foods Ltd. in their Bethune plant in September 2021. This investment is aimed toward developing a new packaging line, new packages for French fries, and renovation of the site that includes modern setting. It would assist the company in progressing toward modern and sustainable industrial manufacturing.

Industry Value to Rise Owing to Growing Application in the Processed Food Sector

One of the key factors propelling the dehydrated potato market growth is the escalating product demand for various applications such as soups, sauces, baked products, and other food items. The market expansion is further impelled by the growing demand for processed dehydrated potatoes in the food & beverage industry.

However, the market growth could be hampered due to the rising demand for nutritious alternatives to avoid the consumption of additive-laden and high-calorie processed foods.
