Freeze-dried food is in great demand
China's introduction of freeze-drying technology is not long, but its development momentum and potential is very considerable. Experts say China has a huge market for instant noodles ingredients alone. By itself, China needs 40,000 tons of freeze-dried food per year. In fact, China currently produces less than 3,000 tons of freeze-dried food per year.
It is also reported that the global consumption of freeze-dried vegetables, meat and seafood has reached 150,000 to 180,000 tons, among which the largest consumption is Japan, with an annual consumption of about 30,000 tons. By the early 21st century, Japan's consumption of freeze-dried food is expected to increase to 50,000 tons, with a shortfall of 20,000 to 30,000 tons to be imported. In recent years, Japanese businessmen have started to invest and build factories in mainland China to produce freeze-dried food and sell it back. At the same time, Europe, the United States, Russia also shows this trend.
