The global market for functional foods will reach $69.73bn in 2018. In this report, Visiongain defines functional foods as packaged products that carry specific “functional” or “health” claims. Driven by an increasing demand for fortified foods, health-conscious consumers and an increasing middle income class in many countries, the market for functional foods provides food companies with excellent growth opportunities.
