The high cost of specialty foods is likely to hinder the growth of the specialty foods market during the period.

Therefore, the high cost of specialty foods is predicted to hinder the growth of the specialty foods market during the forecast period.
The launch of high quality and innovative products such as plant-based, convenience, better-for-you, non-GMO products with authenticity, and products with unique attributes such as low fat, low calorie, low sodium, high protein, no dairy, and organic is a major trend shaping the growth of the specialty foods industry.
