Key market trends
Increased demand for artisanal and healthy products
Consumers in Southeast Asia are increasingly adopting Western-style diets that contain wheat and are high in protein. Thai consumers, in particular, are looking for healthier diets. This prompted companies to produce gluten-free bakery products and natural bakery products. In 2021, Mondelez launched its gluten-free Oreo chocolate sandwich cookies. The gluten-free option is available for its Traditional and Double Stuff Oreo variants. Snack products claiming to contain natural and organic ingredients have seen increased demand in Malaysia and Singapore, and this concept has evolved in other markets as well. The increased consumer demand for nutritious products and the increasing claims of clean labels on the products have accelerated the growth of the market in this region.

Consumers perceive their food as an opportunity to experience various tastes and textures. They are more inclined to products that position themselves as natural and healthy. Many market players are responding to this trend by incorporating “superfood” seeds, such as chia seeds, which are rich in protein and calcium into their offering. Japanese artisan bread is popular among Southeast Asians. Many key players are taking advantage of this trend. These multi-portion buns are part of the offerings of Yamazaki Baking, which began selling Japanese-style bread in Indonesia in 2018 as part of a joint venture with Mitsubishi Corp. and the operator of the local convenience store chain, Alfamart.
