Top Companies in the Indian Frozen Foods Market

Top Companies in the Indian Frozen Foods Market

The Indian frozen foods market reached a value of INR 167.3 Billion in 2023. Frozen foods comprise various food products that are pre-cooked, processed, and preserved at cold temperatures for later use. Some most commonly available frozen foods include frozen meat, vegetables, fruits, poultry, and seafood. They are stored in freezers to extend the shelf life of products while retaining their nutritional value and taste. Compared to traditional home-cooked foods, they offer enhanced palatability, reduced cooking time, and assist in minimizing food wastage. As a result, frozen foods have gained immense popularity in India due to their excellent portability, convenience, and easy storage. 

As per the analysis by IMARC Group, the top companies in the Indian frozen foods industry are focusing on expanding their product portfolio to increase sales and consumer base. They are offering a wide range of seasonal frozen foods all year round, irrespective of their natural availability. Besides this, the leading manufacturers are introducing innovative product variants, such as frozen ready-to-eat (RTE) meals, bakery goods, and snacks made using premium quality, exotic ingredients that offer quick preparation time and ease of consumption. They are also adopting aesthetically appealing and sustainable packaging solutions and extensively investing in aggressive promotional activities through social media platforms to attract more customers. Furthermore, several key players are adopting various offline and online distribution channels, such as supermarkets and hypermarkets, convenience stores, and e-commerce platforms, to boost their product reach. Other factors, including the improving cold chain infrastructure, new product launches, advancements in freezing technologies, and ongoing research and development (R&D) activities, are also providing a positive thrust to the market growth. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach INR 561.6 Billion by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 14% during 2024-2032.
