This, combined with the continuing health and wellness trend in the food and beverage sector, means demand for seafood reaches new heights every year. Indeed, the market is expected to expand at a CAGR of 2.9% from 2022 to 2030.
Keeping pace with this growing demand can be challenging, however. Producers must ensure seafood safety and quality in spite of temperature fluctuations throughout complex supply chains and lengthy transit times. And increasing scrutiny with regard to sustainability, climate change impacts, and escalating costs adds to the difficulty of the task.
To meet these challenges and the continued demand for delicious, fresh and nutritious seafood – and to do it profitably – it's important for producers to partner with a respected, innovative ingredient solutions expert.
Solutions for seafood safety and quality
While the popularity of seafood is soaring, so are consumer expectations for the quality and safety of these products. Success depends on having effective solutions for addressing a broad range of production and supply chain challenges. Corbion can help you achieve your goals in these important areas:
Seafood is highly susceptible to microbial growth, especially when non-heat-treated products are subjected to fluctuating temperatures within the supply chain. Such conditions, in the absence of effective seafood preservation ingredients, can allow food-borne pathogens such as Listeria monocytogenes the chance to grow rapidly.
- Shelf life
Seafood productsnot immediately frozen after processing inevitably present manufacturers with challenges to freshness and safety that increase with time. Given that food waste costs the industry valuable resources, amplifies its environmental impact, and is increasingly on the minds of consumers, effective seafood preservation and shelf-life extension is essential to long-term success.
Many of today's seafood shoppers are focused on ingredient labels, nutrition panels, or both. But naturally derived, flavor-enhancing ingredient solutions now enable producers to deliver delicious, fresh seafood products without using artificial additives or high levels of sodium. Corbion's taste enhancers help optimize seafood’s natural sweet and savory notes without adding unrecognizable ingredients to the product label.
Environmental considerations are becoming increasingly significant purchase drivers for many consumers. For manufacturers, it's more important than ever to consider the sustainability credentials of the ingredients they source.
