The Brazil fresh food packaging market is expected to surge at a CAGR of 3.73% throughout the forecast period. The number of Brazilians suffering from chronic diseases is continuously increasing due to the growing consumption of fast food in the country, supported by rising incomes and increasing urbanization. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the prevalence of diabetes has increased steadily since 1980, with 7.4% of males and 8.8% of females suffering from diabetes in Brazil. Moreover, half of the Brazilian population is overweight, while 20% are obese. As a result, the Brazilian government is taking several measures to reduce the consumption of processed food while increasing the consumption of fresh food products. For example, the Brazilian Ministry of Health banned the advertisement and sales promotion of ultra-processed food products in the country. Hence, favorable government steps and measures to encourage the consumption of fresh food items are one of the major drivers of fresh food packaging in the country. The Increasing export of Brazilian fresh food items around the globe is further driving the demand for fresh food packaging solutions in the country. Brazil's poultry exports reached a record 4.6 million mt in 2021, up 9% from the previous year, according to the Brazilian Association of Animal Protein (ABPA). According to Brazilian farmers, Brazil is the world's largest poultry exporter and third largest producer due to the high quality of its poultry and the efficiency of its chicken production. Approximately one-third of all Brazilian chicken produced is exported – 4,2 million tonnes out of 13,8 million tonnes in 2020 – to more than 150 countries around the world. The country exports poultry to European countries such as the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Germany, and Spain. Supportive government policies and initiatives to increase local production of fresh food items will continue to drive fresh food packaging market growth in Brazil over the next five years.
