Various types of food ingredients include starches, vegetable oils & fats, natural sweeteners, enzymes & antioxidants, natural flavorings & colors, and functional ingredients.

Growing Demand for Ready-to-Eat Foods & Convenience Foods

The number of women workforce has witnessed a tremendous surge over the past decade, which in turn has propelled demand for ready-to-eat foods.
