Market to Benefit from Strategies Adopted by Monterey, Greenyard, and Other Leading Players
People around the world are shifting their preference to vegan foods. The growing popularity of the vegan diet in developing as well as developed nations is expected to drive the market. As canned mushrooms offer several health benefits, the adoption of veganism is likely to rise in the forthcoming years. This, in turn, will augment demand for canned mushrooms. Manufacturers are continuously working on advancements in canning technologies to make them even healthier. This can be achieved by conducting research and development (R&D) activities on food processing procedures. Canned mushrooms are rich in nutrients such as minerals, vitamin C, proteins, and calcium.
Canned mushroom packaging is designed in a way so that the mushrooms don’t decay. The presence of monosodium glutamate and ascorbic acid in canned mushrooms leads to longer shelf life. This will give significant impetus to the market.
