Despite the success of natural preservatives, the food preservatives market should work toward dispelling the misapprehensions among consumers regarding the benefits and safety issues of synthetic preservatives. Negative press has swayed consumer opinion.
"In many instances, misperceptions persist despite findings of little or no safety threat from synthetic preservatives, when used in small quantities," says Frost & Sullivan Research Manager Alina Sun.
Consumers are not adequately educated about the need for food preservatives. To offset this challenge and stimulate market growth, companies should invest in promotion campaigns that include the mass media or seminars to explain the necessity of food preservatives in food products.
Market participants should also extend these campaigns to include food producers and other constituents of the supply chain. Once these campaigns succeed, food processors will be more willing to label preservatives on their products.
Currently, the food preservatives market is riding the success wave of heat-and-eat foods, which are greatly preferred by urbanites leading increasingly busy lifestyles. Preservatives not only help retain the food's color and flavor, but also extend their shelf life by inhibiting the activity of microorganisms.
There has been sustained demand from food processing companies for a variety of commonly used food preservatives including organic, inorganic, and biological preservatives. There are also other kinds of preservatives that are used extensively as bactericide to preserve fruits and vegetables.
The most frequently used organic preservatives, benzoates, sorbates, and propionates, are witnessing impressive demand from international markets, as local manufacturers have proven their competitiveness. They also enjoy a significant price advantage over their substitutes.
"Inorganic preservatives such as nitrites are preferred for their efficiency in preserving meat from bacterium clostridium botulinum as well as their ability to impart a pink, fresh look to cured meat, functioning as color fixatives," notes Sun. "Meanwhile, biological preservatives are also finding considerable uptake, since they are generated by antiseptic microorganisms."
