The increasing consumer awareness about the ill effects of artificial food additives used for food preservation is fuelling the demand for natural and healthy food products. The high demand for convenience food and other ready-to-eat food and beverage products, owing to busy lifestyles, is further leading to increased consumption of the products in the region. Argentina is projected to become the fastest-growing segment in South America's dried food product market. In Argentina, health-conscious consumers search for food and beverage products that are rich in nutrients like vitamins. Since freeze-drying helps in retaining most of the nutrients of foods and vegetables, which would have otherwise been lost due to exposure to heat-based preservation techniques, more manufacturers are offering freeze-dried foods to cater to increased market demand from the country. The dried food product market in countries like Chile is set to witness substantial growth, owing to a surge in demand for foods and beverages rich in nutritional content and growing consumer awareness related to the consumption of healthy food. According to the research report, “South America Dried Fruit Market Research Report, 2028” published by Actual Market Research, the market is expected to grow with 6.59% CAGR during the forecast period. With an increasing number of consumers opting for healthy foods including instant foods that are rich in nutrients, the market is witnessing rapid growth. Also, an increasing number of product introductions by manufacturers with varieties, new flavors, and enhanced taste will add to the dried food product market growth. Dried foods go through a dehydration process aimed at elongating their shelf-life and are extensively used as a prominent substitute for fresh foods. The moisture of food is removed through a machine (dehydrator) or natural process. Berries, raisins, figs, prunes, and apricot are the most common example of food dried across the globe. They are categorized as organic and conventional based on their nature and come in a variety of forms which include powder, slices, granules, and whole dried. Dried food holds numerous applications in the food and beverage industry. The dried foods market is propelling in the South American region due to the growing number of health-conscious people coupled with their increasing preferences for healthy and nutritious food products. Moreover, the growing middle-class population, increasing disposable incomes, and demand for natural-ingredient snacks also contribute to the market’s expansion. In addition, the increasing popularity of breakfast and snack cereals that contain dried foods to increase nutritional value, such as oatmeal, muesli, cornflakes, and so on, is further stimulating the growth of the industry. Furthermore, the product’s characteristics, such as less perishability and easy transportation, make it a popular choice for healthy snacks. As a result, the emerging trend of on-the-go products supports the industry’s growth. GAT-dried foods come from different regions of South America where the climate is best for growing exotic and tropical foods.

Covid-19 Impacts: During the COVID-19 pandemic, the demand for non-perishable food products, especially freeze-dried food that can last up to 30 years without degrading in quality, including meat products or their alternatives, vegetable, fruits, prepared meals, etc., have witnessed a huge surge in the consumer demand. It is mainly driven by the stockpiling nature of the consumer during the pandemic, caused by an extended lockdown, and in most cases, even the consumers avoided stepping outside in public areas in order to safeguard themselves. Moreover, in order to maintain the immune system during the pandemic, consumers are highly concentrating on adding sufficient protein content to their diet, which results in augmenting the sales of dried food products, dairy products, and others that have more shelf-life together with similar nutrients like that of the fresh products.
