Potato Processing Market 2018 Including Invaluable Facts And Figures, Expert Opinions, and the Latest Trends in Global

Potato Processing.jpegDescription:

The Global Potato Processing Market was worth USD 23.63 billion in 2016 and estimated to be growing at a CAGR of 5.56%, to reach USD 30.97 billion by 2021. Potatoes are used for a wide range of purposes, and not just as a vegetable for cooking at home. In fact, it is estimated that less than fifty percent of potatoes grown worldwide are consumed fresh. The rest are processed into potato food ingredients and food products; fed to cattle, chickens and pigs, processed into starch for industry; and re-used as seed tubers for producing the next season’s potato crop.

Fresh potatoes are boiled, baked or fried and used in a staggering range of recipes such as potato pancakes, mashed potatoes, potato dumplings, potato soup, twice-baked potatoes, potato salad and potatoes au gratin among others. But the trend of global consumption of potato as food is shifting from fresh potatoes to processed, added-value, food products. One of the key items in that category is frozen potatoes, which includes most of the French-Fries served in fast-food chains and restaurants worldwide. The world’s appetite for factory-made French-Fries has been put at more than seven million tons a year. Another processed product, the potato crisp is the long-standing king of snack foods in a lot of developed countries. Dehydrated potato flakes are used in retail mashed potato products, as ingredients in snacks, also as food aid.
