The food processing industry in Mexico is the world’s 9th most important, and is the 3rd most important in Latin America after the United States and Brazil. Key market drivers for the food processing sector include an increasing interest in healthy foods across all age groups as well as increasing demand of organic foods and natural ingredients. There is also increased demand for convenience foods and prepared meals, due to the growth of urban cities and more women entering the work force. There is also more demand for gourmet and more sophisticated food products. Consumers are looking for new food experiences and are open to trying more exotic flavors and ethnic foods.
