In 2017, they will reach almost 2 billion tons, which will exceed the level of 2012 by 11%. In the coming years, a number of factors will serve to increase demand for products. First, population growth. Secondly, an increase in the well-being of the population of developing countries. Third, the change in the usual preferences of consumers. The fashion for a healthy lifestyle, which is gaining popularity all over the world (especially in developed countries), leads to the fact that in the daily human diet, fruits and vegetables are replacing proteins and starch. Fourth, the growth in demand for products processing vegetables and mushrooms. In the world, the level of urbanization is growing, the pace of modern life is accelerating, and the employment of women is growing. These factors contribute to the fact that more and more people are abandoning home-made products in favor of “store” products.
