In the underdeveloped and developing markets, its share is much lower. However, in the recent years, this category has gained importance due to some basic advantages it offers in comparison to fresh fruits and vegetables.
The North America IQF Fruits and Vegetables market is broadly classified by type. Fruits include berries, bananas, mango, apple, papaya and others. Vegetables include carrots, beans, peas, corn, potato, broccoli, cauliflower and others.
