Bread: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, California (PRWEB) February 11, 2010
Consumers in modern societies place a lot of importance on convenience. Persistent changes in work force participation and attitudes, as well as growing incomes, have led consumers to emphasize more on convenience. Women hard pressed for time, consider bread as a more convenient alternative to other staples, such as rice, which require substantial preparation time. The newly introduced "buttery" breads, which require no additional butter, are gaining a substantial share in the market at the expense of traditional loaf bread.
Europe and the US dominate the world bread market, as stated by the new market research report on bread. Bread is the staple diet in most North European nations such as Denmark, the Netherlands, and Sweden. Turkey, Germany and Italy are the leading countries in Europe in terms of per capita bread consumption. Of late, manufacturers are introducing whole-grain and multi-grain breads as healthier options.
In the present scenario of economic slowdown, bread demand is being driven by consumer preference for dine-in meals and brown bag lunches. Homemade food is more nutritious and offers more value for money to consumers, thereby generating curiosity among them to explore innovative ways of using bread. Increased level of health consciousness among consumers has brought whole grain bread and bread with fiber content into focus. Of late, consumers are not only more cautious about food ingredients, but are also concerned about the source of origin of the food and its ingredients. Further, environmental concerns are driving the sales of organic food products, as consumers are taking informed decisions in purchasing products.
Key players dominating the global bread market include Associated British Foods Plc, Allied Bakeries, Fine Lady Bakeries, Flowers Bakeries, Inc., Frank Roberts & Sons Ltd, Franz Family Bakeries, Greggs plc, Grupo Bimbo S.A. de C.V., George Weston Bakeries Inc., La Brea Bakery Corporate, Pepperidge Farm, Inc., Premier Foods plc, Sara Lee Corporation, Warburtons, Ltd., and William Jackson Food Group Limited, among others.
