Opportunity: Covid-19 pandemic opens a potential for developing UHT-based health drinks
After the COVID-19 pandemic, there is a rising demand for healthy food and beverage eating options. People being more conscious about their lifestyle choices are now making more thoughtful purchasing decisions and opting for sustainable alternatives. Also, they are getting increasingly curious about how and where something is made and its impact on the environment.
Due to COVID-19, people are looking to increase their immunity. This quest for products with health benefits opens possibilities for developing UHT-based health drinks. Technical expertise is considered a key differentiator within the beverage processing equipment sector to achieve higher margins. Companies make investments in innovation, which is a vital factor for the overall growth of the industry.
The growing global population is putting increased pressure on producers for the manufacturing, extraction, and maintenance of scarce resources. High energy prices and rising raw material costs are impacting food prices and affecting low-income consumers. The pressure on food supplies is being exacerbated by water shortage, particularly across Africa and Northern Asia. Therefore, advancements in science and technology are helping the extension of shelf life of foods & beverages greatly. The need for marketing UHT processing equipment to the smallest of food & beverage manufacturers is also increasing in the product's market size, especially in countries such as Zambia, Botswana, and Namibia.
Challenge: High product quality requirement for UHT treatment
The products required for UHT treatment must be of superior quality. For instance, when milk is exposed to UHT, it must be of high quality to sustain high heat treatment. For instance, it is also imperative that proteins in raw milk do not cause thermal instability. Raw milk of poor quality hurts both process ability and the final product's quality when treated with high heat. Milk with a pH below 6.65 at 20°C has reduced thermal stability and causes processing problems, difficulties with cleaning, and sedimentation of proteins at the bottom of the package during storage. Therefore, the quality of milk required remains an important criterion.
Environmental mandates regarding the food & beverage packaging and processing industry vary across countries; this makes it very difficult for companies to adjust to the packaging materials used according to the regulations applicable in that specific country/region. Not just the manufacturers, environmental mandates affect the consumer, government, and commercial entities. Consumers are showing more interest in biodegradable and eco-friendly materials; the commercial sector tries to ensure that the packaging of the product does not increase the cost of the product to a large extent such that they lose out on market share. Retailers are also skeptical about the raw materials being used to prepare cartons, boxes, and bags and make sure that they are eco-friendly. Governments in Europe, North America, and North Asia have developed regulations strictly pertaining to the packaging industry about their recycling rates, container deposits, and packaging levies. Such variations in the mandates across regions pose a challenge to the manufacturers, importers, and exporters in this market.
