Italy - Italian Food Processing Ingredients Sector Report 2017


Report Highlights: The Italian food-processing industry continues to be highly fragmented, however, in recent years the sector has been characterized by the growing consolidation of smaller companies and by an increasing number of joint ventures. Progress in food technology, marketing innovations, “Made in Italy” products and exports of finished food products have all contributed to Italy’s increasing demand for food ingredients. Key market drivers include an increasing interest in healthy and functional foods, an aging population, and health conscious consumers. Italy depends almost entirely on raw material imports, most of which come from other EU countries.
