Cooking is something humans have enjoyed doing for ages. However, the changing lifestyles and long hours at work make it a daunting task for the urban population. In such a scenario, convenience foods like Ready-to-Eat (RTE) and Ready-to-Cook (RTC) act as saviors by reducing cooking time and providing nutrition to the whole family. These foods are bought prepared and packaged and require minimal or no cooking. They may be simply heated and consumed.

Around the world, consumers are getting inclined towards buying convenience foods as they have a longer shelf life and thus can be stored for future use. This is contributing to its rapid market growth. The global RTE market size was valued at USD 99324.79 Million in 2022 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of 5.24% during 2023-2028, reaching USD 134961.52 Million by 2028. Striding along is the RTC market which is projected to reach USD 14.24 Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR Of 6.92% from 2023-2030.

In India, the RTE market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 20.64% between 2022 and 2027 and its size is expected to increase by USD 1,064.32 million. The RTC market is expected to grow by USD 488.97 Million during 2022-2027, accelerating at a CAGR of 7.12% during that period.
