The food and beverage industry is going through enormous changes due to factors, such as changing consumer preferences, which prompt the FMCG companies to adopt new technologies and measures to offer packaging on-par with the changing trends. Modern packaging technology is being adopted by packaging vendors in order to improve the quality of packaging to serve a more extensive range of customers (FMCG companies) and to enable them to achieve product differentiation. With the rising demand for nutritional foods among consumers, the FMCG packaging companies are innovating their packaging in order to preserve the nutritional value of the products that are being packed. The transpor tation of packed goods and consumables can have adverse effects and can also lead to a reduction of the nutritional value of the packaged contents. In combination with consumers' desire to have information about the origin of the food products, more and more hyperlocal supply chains are emerging. With the recent trend of private labels, big retailers are ramping up their packaging in order to attract customers. More than half of consumers are loyal to a specific store due to its private-label brands, according to a survey conducted by Daymon.

The food prepared with this technology retains all the nutritional value along with the natural sensory qualities. Besides this, the equipment acts as one of the significant sources for the foodservice operator for the meal provision, but at a cost of much higher standard in terms of quality management to overcome the microbiological risks. Factors such as shifting preferences towards the adoption of innovative food processing methods are expected to open avenues for the overall sous vide machine demand in the market.

The innovation and portfolio expansion in the gluten-free space is retaining its growth.
