Ready-to-eat (RTE) food refers to processed and packaged food items that require minimal or no further preparation. The ingredients used in these food products are cooked, processed, frozen, and then packed into containers for direct consumption later. Meat products, powder mixes, desserts, dairy products, shelf-stable foods, baked goods, cheese, etc., are some common ready-to-eat variants. They are rich in flavors, antioxidants, extracts, preservatives, sweeteners, and acids. Ready-to-eat food products offer convenience, reduce meal preparation time, provide longer shelf-life, and allow minimal wastage and spoilage.

The elevating levels of urbanization, along with the hectic consumer work schedules and sedentary lifestyles, are primarily driving the market for RTE food products. Additionally, the rising working women population and the improving consumer living standards are also propelling the product demand on a global level. Moreover, the growing number of quick-service restaurants (QSRs), along with the emerging café culture, is further augmenting the demand for RTE food products that require minimal preparation time and allow faster customer service. Besides this, the emergence of numerous innovative product variants, such as gluten-free, vegan, organic, and lactose-free RTE food items, will continue to drive the global market in the coming years. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global ready to eat (RTE) food market to continue its moderate growth during the next five years.
