Rising demand for convenience food products, economic growth and shelf-life extension along with other factors are primary factors boosting the global frozen bread market. In fact, the market is experiencing consistently strong growth of around 4.3% every year. JBT’s range of hygenic, efficient spiral freezers are ideally placed to support such growth, particularly in growing markets such as Latin America.
Frozen bakery products are increasingly becoming an integral part of the daily diet around the world. Busy lifestyles have contributed to the growth of the bread manufacturing industry and an increasing emphasis on producing new products that can cater to the rise in demand from consumers. The increase in consumption of frozen bakery products is also being strongly echoed in the emerging markets of Asia Pacific and Latin America.
Like many other countries, Brazil is experiencing strong growth in frozen bakery products, whose worth is expected to exceed $26 billion in 2022, according to Caio Guillen, JBT’s Marketing Manager for South America.
JBT will be highlighting its entire portfolio focused on this segment at FIPAN 2022, Latin America’s largest bakery and confectionery trade exhibition, from 19-22 July in São Paulo’s Expo Center Norte.
Innovation in products and processes has been the main focus of the industry, which has sought even greater and broader professionalization, with investments in larger-scale production lines, with a high degree of automation and technology, guaranteeing products of the highest quality and food safety to the end consumer, says Fabio Viegas, Sales Manager at JBT in Brazil.
