Natural food preservatives prevent multiplication of microorganisms, thus constraining or suspending the process of spoilage. Natural food preservatives market is expanding robustly as high demand for organic foods has repercussions on preservative categories needed to maintain freshness in products. Growing demand for organic food is fueling the growth of natural food preservatives.

Adoption of Performance-Driven Strategies Becoming Paramount

The natural food preservatives market is witnessing rapidly changing trends, such as the development of modified and highly advanced natural preservatives with more efficiency in increasingly shelf life of food products. The rigorous competition in natural food preservatives market is propelling natural food preservatives’ manufacturers to induce innovation and technology in their manufacturing processes to move ahead of the competition. To capitalize on the growing demand for organic food preservatives, and to gain hefty natural food preservatives market share, several leading players in natural food preservatives market are adapting numerous unique market strategies, such as mergers, innovative product development, acquisitions, partnerships, and expansion of existing facilities. For instance a leading player in global natural food preservatives market has recently developed flavonoids based on genetically modified yeast.

The increasing number of innovative product launches in tandem with the rise in new entrants in natural food preservatives market are expected to make natural food preservatives market highly competitively priced in the upcoming years. Some of the notable developments in natural food preservatives market include:

  • On January 29, Kerry Group launched a non-GMO yeast as natural solution for acrylamide reduction. Kerry Group’s latest solution, Acryleast™, has been brought to market via a partnership with Renaissance BioScience.
  • Leading natural extracts manufacturer, Arjuna Natural Extracts, has recently released an organic, formulation-specific preservative intended to increase the shelf life of chilled meats. According to Arjuna, X-tend’s natural formulation can safely switch with chemical nitrosomyoglobin-forming preservatives while remaining non-carcinogenic and safe for uptake in chilled meat.
  • Nanyang Technological University scientists have identified a plant-based food preservative that is more effective as compared to artificial preservatives. The newly found organic preservative is composed of naturally occurring substances called ‘flavonoids’, a varied group of phytonutrients available in nearly all vegetables and fruits.

Detailed profiling of other leading players operating in natural food preservatives market has also been included in FactMR report on natural food preservatives market. Key players operating in natural food preservatives market include Archer Daniels Midland Company,  Handary S.A.,  Tate & Lyle, Cargill, Naturex SA, E. I. du Pont de Nemours, Merck KGaA, Danisco, Kalsec Inc.,  Kemin Industries, Inc., Brenntag Inc, Kerry Group Plc, BTSA Biotecnologías Aplicadas, Zhengzhou Bainafo Bioengineering Co., Ltd., Siveele B.V., Royal DSM, MAYASAN Food Industries A.S., Wiley Organics, Inc., Chihon Biotechnology Co., Koninklijke DSM N.V., Chr. Hansen Holding A/S, Cayman Chemical Company, Inc, Dumoco Co. Ltd., and others.

Gains Underpinned by Widespread Consumers’ Preference for Clean Label Food Products

The increasing awareness among consumers, predominantly about food products’ ingredients has made clean label items essential for food industry. The shifting consumer preference for food products that contain natural ingredients, in tandem with increasing nutritional properties and health awareness are influencing the growth of natural food preservatives market. To capitalize on this paradigm shift in consumer preference, natural food preservatives’ manufacturers are increasingly focusing on natural food preservatives derived from animal, plant, mineral and microbial sources, in order to comply with the consumer preference for no artificial ingredients and additives.

Safe Properties of Natural Food Preservatives Fueling their Adoption

Natural food preservatives are a viable option owing to the presence of useful and safe nutrients for consumption such as vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients in them. As natural food preservatives maintain same taste, flavors, and long shelf life of food, natural food preservatives are witnessing impressive adoption in raw and cooked food. Further, with natural food preservatives witnessing great demand from F&B industry, natural food preservatives’ manufacturers are focusing on developing preservation techniques that enhance safety and microbial quality without compromising on nutritional value. Natural food preservatives are also witnessing traction from food technologists, who are eying them as substitutes to chemical- and physical-based antimicrobial treatments. Consumers are increasingly gravitating towards foods containing natural food preservatives as they are safe with no bad impact on human health.

Application of Natural Antimicrobial Compounds over Chemical and Physical Food Preservatives on Rise 

Antimicrobial compounds are increasingly gaining ground as safe replacements for chemical and physical food preservatives, owing to the potential health impact of the later. As a result, natural food preservatives are increasingly opting for antimicrobial compounds based on plants as viable source of natural food preservatives, while complying with consumer preference for clean label products. Antimicrobial substances, including protein or peptide secretions, bacteriocins, and bioactive molecules sourced from plants have also been exploited in myriad ways for food preservation. To move ahead of the counterparts in highly competitive natural food preservatives market, manufacturers are incorporating herbs and spices that exhibit broad spectrum of active constituents with antiviral, antibacterial, antiparasitic, and antifungal properties. The growing focus of manufacturers on these natural antimicrobial compounds as safe replacements for chemical and physical food preservatives with many side effects and cause health risks to the consumers, is likely to underpin gains in natural food preservatives market.

Cost Remains A Big Restraint to Sustained Growth

While natural food preservatives make a beneficial option from consumer health point of view, cost remains a considerable challenge ahead for manufacturers eying better share in natural food preservatives market. Elevated pricing of natural food preservatives over their synthetic counterparts, which is attributed to high costs of processing and producing natural preservatives, has been hampering the growth of natural food preservatives market. Many natural food preservatives market entrants and emerging market players in food and beverage industry continue to confine their production to adoption of synthetic and chemical-based food preservatives due to affordability factor. Further, the emergence of newer and technically advanced food preservation procedures are expected to render traditional preservation techniques as outdated in the forthcoming years.
