The increasing food waste in the United States is embarking on the necessity to find ways to limit the nation's waste, where the adoption of food preservatives comes into play. According to the WILEY magazine, a 280% rise in household food waste was observed between 2021 and 2022 in the United States. The propensity to aid the food and beverage industry players in extending the shelf life of several products by limiting microbial reactions is the main factor contributing to the food preservatives market growth.

Growing government investments are also likely to facilitate a favorable market for food preservatives. The government is working on reducing food waste by 50% by 2030 as part of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. For instance, in September 2023, the United States unveiled USAID’s Food Loss and Waste Accelerator with an investment of USD 10 million. 

Rising distress over food spoilage in households is exhibiting optimal demand for foods with a longer expiration date. According to Kerry’s Study, 72% of consumers believed that prolonging the shelf life of drinks and food products could assist them in lowering food waste.

Food providers, mainly bakery foods such as bread, cakes, and more, are coming forward with research initiatives to promote their shelf life as they are prone to spoiling early, causing the need for food preservatives. According to Kerry, a food preservative market player in the United States, 25% of the bread consumed by people goes to waste due to its limited longevity.

The growing demand for processed food in the country is making its way to the multiple food and beverage companies offering processed and snacking food products. According to the New York Times, 60% of the calories among Americans are attained through the consumption of processed foods. As processed foods are required to be stored for a longer time to reach the end user, there will be a significant proportion of firms utilizing food preservatives, contributing to their significant demand in the region.
