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.

    My boyfriend Kelvin left me in June 19th, I could barely speak without crying. I felt blindsided and didn’t know what to do and I was devastated. The most painful thing is that I was pregnant for him. I wanted him back. I did everything within my reach to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so badly because of the love I had for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my sister and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back , I had no choice than to give it a trail. I messaged the spell caster called dr.unity, and he assured me there was no problem and that everything will be ok, and he told me what is needed to be done and i provide the necessary things.

  • I tried getting a car loan sometime last year but my credit score of about 521 ruined the process. Since I was in desperate need of a car due to the nature of my new job, I resorted to making online research on how I could restore my credit to a minimum of 650 to enable me to qualify, after a few months of searching, I bumped into a blog and found positive reviews about HACK VANISH CREDIT SPECIALIST, So I reached out to them to explain my credit situation, they requested my info and necessary details and were able to get every derogatory item on my report erased and increased my FICO score to 788 within 6 days, I was amazed. They are fast and reliable. Anyone looking for a credit solution below is their contact details:
