According to CXOs, growth in urbanization and globalization, as well as an increase in disposable income, play a vital role in shifting food habits around the world, fueling consumer demand for unique cuisines. As a result, customers are more conscious of the food products they consume on a daily basis. This has created market demand for manufacturers to provide consumers with detailed nutritional content of the product. John West and Bumble Bee Foods introduced a new technology called traceability. With this invention, consumers learn more about the origins of their salmon inside the package by using the 'Can Tracker,' which traces the origin of each can of salmon back to the ocean. Hence, such improvements from manufactures to meet the consumer need are expected to boost the canned salmon market growth.
Consumers today increasingly look for organic food and food products that have organic preservatives. Salmon grown organically in controlled environment and on organic feed is free from toxicity of antioxidants and due to this organically grown salmon consumers tend to prefer the canned salmon product prepared from such salmon. As canned salmon is a precooked and packaged food, it contains additives to enhance its quality and shelf life. Essential oils, plant extracts, hydrocolloids, phenolic compounds, and other plant-derived natural substances are widely used in seafood preservation. Their high antibacterial and antioxidant properties suggest that they could be useful in the food business. For instance, canned salmon products are induced with oregano, garlic, and lime extract to improve shelf life by antibacterial and antioxidant activity. Such organic preservatives are accepted by consumers and thus the sale of canned salmon is expected to grow during the forecast period.
