September 27, 2018

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 27, 2018--The “Global Food Spreads Market - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2018 - 2023)” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

Global food spread market is expected to register a CAGR of 3.5% during the forecast period, 2018-2023.

Consumer Preference for Clean Label Solutions

A majority of consumers in developed countries are looking for food spreads without any artificial preservatives or additives, as the continuous use of artificial additives gradually leads to long-term adverse health effects. The purpose of adding flavoring agents, preservatives, and sweeteners is to develop different product varieties with extended shelf-life. Natural additives are comparatively costlier, and they do not sustain product quality over extended periods.

However, several large manufacturers have introduced spreads/buttery spreads with no artificial preservatives and flavor addition. Unilever has transformed its existing butter spread portfolio toward real/natural products with plant-based oil, salt, water, and no artificial additives.

The aim of clean labels is to drive the sustainability of the product and provide great taste. The leader in food spreads, J.M. Smucker has expanded its spread product range with the launch of honey and fruit spread with natural ingredients. The honey spread market is a growing market in the North America and Europe in terms of clean labelling.
