Leisure food, also known as "snack", has the characteristics of nonmeals, fast food, wide coverage and instant eating. It is loved by more and more different ages. In addition to satisfying the consumer's leisure and entertainment needs, leisure food is gradually becoming "fourth meal" in one day's meals. At the same time, many consumers form a "new fashion" trend of consumption. Meanwhile, the leisure food has also brought the opportunity for the related food machinery manufacturing industry.
In general, the development of the leisure food market in China is good, but there are also some problems behind the development, such as small-scale, various types and low barriers to the industry.
At the same time, the phenomenon of homogeneity is also very common, and some low-end products still have fierce price competition. The most important thing is that enterprises have a weak consciousness of independent innovation, R & D ability for original new products. Compared with foreign investment in production technology, we still need improvement in terms of technology and research and development of new products. For example, in terms of food safety, part of the leisure food processor
is not perfect (food inspection instruments, food sterilization equipment, measurement instruments and so on). This leads to the excessive addition of food additives, the pollution of food raw materials and so on, which will cause the hidden danger of food quality and safety. In the face of this situation, leisure food enterprises should actively introduce advanced professional food processor
, develop product research and development, and improve their competitiveness with quality and brand. Food machinery and equipment manufacturing industry should sense the potential development of snack food industry, actively cooperate to develop related supporting processing equipment, and meet the development needs of its new products in time.
