Market Dynamics
Rising Convenience and On-the-Go Consumption are Anticipated to Grow the Bread Market’s Growth

The rise of snacking culture has contributed to the demand for convenient, grab-and-go food options. A third of all foods found in supermarkets, including bread, biscuits, cakes, soups, sausages, and sauces, are made using wheat flour.
Additionally, according to Kantar, 99.8% of UK homes buy bread. Flour plays a significant part in the food industry. Furthermore, a substantial source of important vitamins and minerals is wheat flour. Flour accounts for 30% of our iron intake and a third of our calcium and fiber intake.
Rising Demand for Artisan and Specialty Bread is Expected to Fuel the Bread Market
The demand for artisan and specialty bread represents a premiumization trend in the market. Consumers are willing to pay a higher price for bread products that are perceived to be of higher quality, made with unique ingredients, and crafted using traditional or artisanal techniques. Artisan and specialty bread offer opportunities for differentiation and targeting niche markets.

Russia-Ukraine War Impact
The invasion by Russia has significantly impeded trade from Black Sea ports, increasing Chicago benchmark wheat prices globally by 40% and accelerating food inflation globally, which was already at its highest level in a decade.
The Calgary Italian Bakery in Alberta hiked prices by 7% a few weeks before the most recent wheat price increase to cover expenditures related to the previous year’s Canadian drought and increases in flour and yeast. Louis Bontorin, co-owner of the 60-year-old family business, now worries that once he has used up his four to five months’ flour supply, he will need to increase prices again.
