Due to a growing demand for packaged and convenience foods, coupled with the fact that canned food has a much longer shelf life than fresh food and thus saves money and reduces food waste, the global canned fruits market is growing at a reasonable rate. According to analysts at Technavio, the market is projected to grow at a CAGR of approximately 4% by 2020. The competitive environment is highly fragmented, and in order for vendors to continue to succeed, they must be innovative in their offerings and be able to differentiate themselves in the marketplace.
