Flavorists face rising food prices, legislation and competition as the demand for savory flavors explodes
Savory flavorings is a growth market that is predicted to increase significantly over the next five years in line with the rapid growth of the consumption of meat products. The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) reported that global consumption of meat is estimated to grow from 250 million tonnes per annum to 300 million tonnes by 2020, and to more than 450 million tonnes by 2050. The graph in F-1 shows that most of this growth is in developing countries, with meat consumption in developed countries leveling off. The supply of ingredients to support this market will grow in tandem with meat consumption and will have a major impact on savory flavors.
