With millions of health conscious consumers, the global health food market could reach $557.6 billion by 2024, says Research and Markets. The analysts note that, “Increasing adoption of healthy eating habits among people is leading to the rising demand for functional food products such as grains, fruits, vegetables and nuts, which is eventually accelerating the growth of the global health food market.” That demand is helping to fuel growth for Rritual Superfoods Inc. (CSE:RSF)(OTC:RRSFF), Else Nutrition Holdings Inc. (TSXV: BABY)(OTCQX: BABYF)(FSE:0YL), Burcon NutraScience Corp. (TSX:BU)(NASDAQ:BRCN), Very Good Food Company Inc. (TSXV:VERY)(OTC:VRYYF), and Laird Superfood Inc. (NYSE:LSF).
In addition, they found that, “The fastest regional market is the U.S., owing to the growth in health-conscious population as well as growing people's awareness about the health benefits of a nutritional and balanced diet. Consumers are maximizing their healthy diet in order to boost their immunity and reduce vulnerability to the fatal disease, which is providing a growth opportunity to the global health food market during the forecasted period.”
