Nearly 1,500 companies entered F&B segment over past 5 years: Traxn

Posted by Sunita Sylvia on

Nearly 1500 companies have entered the food and beverages (F&B) segment in the country, raising $1.6 billion over the past five years, according to the latest numbers by Tracxn, a market intelligence provider for private company data. The influx in the F&B segment is disproportionately higher compared to the home, personal and lifestyle categories which saw about 600 new players entering the segment.

However, direct to consumer brands in the health food space have managed to raise just about $100 million, despite most companies claiming that the sub-segment will grow significantly post covid.

"Historically, the Indian consumer has strongly preferred taste-led snack categories such as potato chips, extruded snacks, chocolates, and cookies. Hence, it only makes sense to give consumers healthier options in these categories rather than expecting them to change their taste preferences suddenly to health bars and makhanas," said said Anish Basu Roy, founder, TagZ
Foods that is popular for its potato chips, and has recently launched gourmet dips and premium bar snacks.

For instance, health bars and makhanas accounted for a minuscule share of the Rs 80,000 crore healthy snacking segment in India last year with sales of Rs97 crore and 150 crore each.

This is despite snacking seeing a sudden surge in sales post covid, and are still growing at double digit. These segments saw huge panic buying during the first wave last year when consumers hunkered down in their homes due to coronavirus-related restrictions. Companies had expected the segments to slow down after mobility improved and out of home consumption occasions rose but it did not happen.

Research firm Kantar had forecasted snacking to grow by about 9%. About nine in 10 Indians or 88% said they are snacking more during the pandemic than before it, with millennials likely preferring snacks over meals, according to a 2020 study by Mondelez International and The Harris Poll, which covered nearly 6300 people across 12 countries.

Packaged salty snacks and biscuits are an over 65,000-crore market, and two of the largest categories within India’s fast moving consumer goods basket. While Indians prioritised snacks over meals over the past year , three-fourths of Indians have relied on snacks for nourishment and a majority of them are actively seeking snacks that are high protein and vitamin rich, the study added.

"It is improbable that consumers will completely ignore their taste preferences in their search for healthier snacks. The need of the hour is to innovate using global advances in food technology and provide the consumer with better-for-you chips, chocolates, and cookies," added Roy.

    I made millions through lottery spells with the help of Doctor Odunga. I contacted Doctor Odunga through his email: odungaspelltemple@gmail.com to perform a spell for me to win the Powerball Lottery in Florida. After I contacted him, he replied to me and said I should only pay $200 for the spell and I should trust in him. It was hard at first to let my money go but I had to keep faith. I was surprised when he gave me the winning numbers to play the Saturday Powerball Lottery. I bought the ticket and truly speaking, the winning number emerged the Powerball numbers and I was the winner of the lottery. I won $1,203,834.00 USD as the Powerball Lottery Winner. I am very happy to share this testimony of Doctor Odunga and want you too to meet him at his email: odungaspelltemple@gmail.com OR Whats app +2348167159012
