The market of agro-processing products is increasing very fast both in domestic and export markets. Bringing a solution to post harvest losses, agro-processing industry has opened a new avenue for the Bangladesh in the field of export earnings, which already witnessed a 41% rise to $374 million in the last fiscal year.

The era of food processing began about 2 million years ago when our distant ancestors put flame to food and discovered cooking. After that, we see fermenting, drying, preserving with salt, and other primitive forms of food processing. This ultimately led to the modern food processing methods of today, which give us an abundant, safe, convenient, affordable and nutritious food supply. Processed Foods can be defined as- "any deliberate change in a food that occurs before it's available for us to eat. It can be as simple as freezing or drying food to preserve nutrients and freshness, or as complex as formulating a frozen meal with the right balance of nutrients and ingredients" See More
If we take into account the outlook for 2030, Bangladesh needs additional six million tonnes of milk. With the current deficit of six million tonnes and additional requirement of six million tonnes, in the next 12 years, Bangladesh needs to produce 12 million tonnes of milk. With the current rate of production, will Bangladesh be able to produce an additional one million tonne per year? The lack of land availability, limited feed and fodder, and lower milk production efficiency are key constraints for increasing milk production. Achieving self-sufficiency would be quite challenging for Bangladesh unless we take a holistic approach to increase milk production. See More
Today, an increasing number of people are shifting to packaged or powdered milk in their quest for safe food. At the same time, processors have increased processing and expanded their footprints in the urban landscape. Now, more than half a dozen milk processors are processing 10 lakh litres of fresh milk daily, which is more than double the amount they could process a decade ago. And organised milk processors, gradually encouraged by business prospects arising out of increasing demand for milk and milk products, are increasing the volume of processing. See More
Global milk production is now estimated to expand by a slower pace, far slower than in the recent past. Growth prospects have been affected by a number of factors as international markets have been responding to the historically high international price levels of the past couple of years. On balance, prospects for the world's six major milk product exporters, which cater 77 per cent of global trade, have improved somewhat in recent months. Their milk production is now expected to hover around 40 per cent of global production. But production growth is slowing in some regions, due to high feed prices and high opportunity costs for pasture. In some areas, new issues have surfaced that may affect consumer demand. See More
Exporters’ effort to create innovative exportable products and robust marketing have helped processed foods win the hearts of Bangladeshis in the Middle East, Europe and other parts of the world, say industry insiders. Export earnings from agro-processed food has grown 97.31 per cent to USD 291.82 million in first quarter (July-September) of the current fiscal year (2018–19), up from USD 147.90 million a year ago, buoyed mostly by a stream in the exports of dry foods, tea, fruit juice, biscuits and rice.

The current practices of vaccine transportation violate WHO standards frequently. Monetary loss and health hazards are the detrimental consequences of the lack of awareness. Apart from perishable food items and vaccines, ice-cream and dairy products too require flawless refrigerated transportation and repository. An integrated cold chain with necessary cold storage facilities at major locations can address all the issues to ensure non-decayed food and vaccine availability. We have estimated that the cold chain market size of Bangladesh may be around USD 1.3 Billion. See More

We’ve a definite food habit which may little differ according to the local geographic variation. Almost all of us are habitual of taking same kind of food. Nevertheless we occasionally taste foreign food items in different restaurants. So different foreign food companies started their business in Bangladesh. Beverage industry is one of them. But more interestingly we don’t know beverage is also our cultural food because beverage doesn’t mean only carbonated drinks. Yoghurt, soup and lacchi are also beverage of our tradition which we consumed for last 100 years. But carbonated beverage is new in Bangladesh. It entered into our market in the later part of 1980. At that time there were only few companies in Bangladesh. See More

Apart from the 60 big factories listed with Bangladesh Auto Biscuit and Bakery Manufacturers Association (BABBMA), there are approximately 5,000 semi-automated or manual small bakeries. Bakers like Belal constitute informal workers who do not have the legal protection and benefits enjoyed by workers in the formal sector. They work in small factories, where the number of workers is less than 50. Despite years of experience, they have low levels of skills and productivity, with no training or scope for innovation. They have all but accepted that they have to work long hours in return for a paltry and irregular income. See More

No cake analysis can run in the absence of the Black Forest. Every occasion on mother nature’s blessed Earth had to go through the Black forest dressing. From birthdays to anniversaries, every special dayrequired a blackforest cake to start the celebrations. The blackforest age, stretching from the early 2006 to the end of 2013, was a doozy phase with no baking experiments, no innovation or product differentiation – for many bakeries, you just had to make the cake look 60% dark chocolate-y and maybe add a top layer of either vanilla or strawberry because it sells. However, this particular period encouraged a lot of bakeries to open up business and sell blackforest wonders, to only divert the trend away by some crucial, on-point kitchen experimentation and probably the lack of a fresh taste.

According to information given by industry experts, the local market of candy and chewing gums is worth nearly Tk 1,400 crore at present. This market has been developed with the products of local and foreign brands and local companies. The yearly growth in this sector is 10–15 per cent. The global candy market has been valued at USD 79.35 billion in 2018, and is further expected to register a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 3.5 per cent during 2018–2023. Experts say the export market, as part of the confectionery industry, is seasonal with demand peaking in festive seasons. So, great opportunity would open up for Bangladeshi manufacturers and exporters if a robust backward linkage industry could be developed fully. See More
