Acceptance of frozen foods as a safe and healthy food preservation method is leading the Korean frozen food market

Frozen foods are flash-frozen at a very low temperature to crystallise water and prevent the product from going soggy when thawed. This lowers the damage to the structure of food products. There is a very negligible variation in the nutrient content of the food. Hence, the food item stays fresh for a longer time. Moreover, Carotenoids and flavonoids are retained in frozen vegetables as they are often blanched before freezing. Frozen foods are widely accepted by people as it is a safe and healthy way of preserving food items, unlike canning and drying in which preservatives are added to increase the shelf life of products.
 

Frozen food is typically cheaper than fresh food and does not require any preparation like washing or peeling which saves a lot of time for working professionals, especially women. Also, arable land in South Korea is less  hence buying frozen food is a way to make the variety of food items accessible.

Increased Popularity of Convenience Food and Improved Packaging is Augmenting the Growth of Frozen Food Market

The market for frozen foods is driven by increased demand for convenience brought on by an ageing population. Given that they take less time and effort to prepare than homemade meals, consumers' growing preference for convenience foods indirectly benefits the demand for frozen goods. These convenience foods are another temptation for those who are unable to hire a cook. These factors are contributing to the growth of the South Korea frozen food market.

 

To reduce the operational expenses, the food service industry like cafes, hotels, resorts, caterers, and restaurants are among the major consumers of frozen food products. Due to excellent internet penetration, companies are investing in online retail channels which are bolstering the growth of the frozen food market in South Korea. Online channels are expected to grow further during the given forecast period. Additionally buying Frozen food online is becoming a popular option among consumers as a result of the social distancing brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

Increasing Production of Retort Pouches, Technological Innovation, and a Variety of Frozen Foods in the Market are Aiding the Frozen Food Market Growth 

Manufacturers make use of retort pouches , which can keep food fresh for around a year, and preservatives don't need to be added because of how the product is packaged. This guarantees that the product stays scrumptious and nutritious. Frozen meals are packed using techniques that preserve the quality and freshness of the components. 

 

Rising disposable income, the development of goods with longer shelf lives, and an increase in impulsive buying have resulted in the growing demand for frozen food products. Given the benefits of frozen food and the strong backing for technological innovation, the items are now much more widely available and reasonably priced for people across the nation. The frozen food market has evolved from offering unprocessed raw food products such as frozen meat, vegetables, and fruits to prepared cuisine, frozen vegetable mixtures, bakery goods, and frozen desserts. The flavours, including sweetness, fat content, and texture, are the variables influencing the frozen food market's growth.
