Market Overview

  • Clean-label ingredients are consumer-friendly ingredients, which are natural, organic, non-GMO, and very minimally processed. Clean label products are 100% natural, non-GMO, and organic. The demand for natural ingredients is growing, owing to the increasing health concerns of the customers, regarding the adverse health effects of artificial ingredients.

Key Market Trends

Natural Flavor is the Fastest Growing Segment

Though the demand for the clean label is clear, consumers still desire naturally juicy, flavorful meats, while products need to be safe and offer extended shelf life. Clean label has affected the global flavors market, and both color and flavor producers have responded with innovation and investments in R&D. Artificial flavorings, such as Benzophenone, ethyl acrylate, pyridine, and styrene are identified as carcinogens, and thus, are being fast replaced by natural flavorings.'Natural' consumers tend to pay more for natural food and confectionery products, and naturally flavored confections provide a higher value proposition for the product and brand. More and more companies, including Campbell's, General Mills, Kellogg, and Nestle USA, are publicly committing to remove artificial colorings and flavorings from at least some of their products.

Asia-Pacific is the Fastest Growing Region

The Asia-Pacific clean label market is registering a CAGR of 7.4%. Asia-Pacific is the region, where there are people from various economic backgrounds.
