Food Processing Ingredients
In CY 2010, Argentina?s imports of natural food ingredients were valued at $700 million. The main ingredients imported
were those which are not manufactured locally or their production is not sufficient to supply the local industry. There is a
significant market for some U.S. food ingredients among local producers of ingredients, who use them to manufacture high-
value, tailor-made food products.
The Food and Beverage (F&B) industry is one of the main activities contributing to the Argentine economy,
accounting for 33 percent of Argentina?s total exports.
As a major grain and oilseed producer, Argentina plays a key role in the international trade scenario. Many of
the food products manufactured in the country come from commodity production, and undergo further
processing using basic raw materials, such as milk, and also other inputs with additional technological
significance, such as edible oils. The F&B industry includes both national and multinational companies, and
associations of representatives from various entities as well, which contribute to the production and
distribution of high-quality foods in the domestic and foreign market.
The following are the primary trends which are currently being followed by the local F&B industry:
F&B companies are continuously launching new products through their Research and Development
There are important investments in technology updates.
Local production capacity is being used fully, which requires additional investments to supply the
growing food demand.
?Health and Nutrition? is a very strong concept in F&B supply and demand.
Greater interaction between the local industry and universities is being carried out, fostering
SECTION I. MARKET SUMMARY
Food ingredients of animal and vegetable origin used for the manufacturing of F&B may have a wide complexity,
and their percentage in the product formulation may vary according to their functionality. The most simple
ingredients used are corn starches, milk powder, egg albumin, soy protein, cocoa, and natural sweeteners
substituting sucrose, such as fructose. Wheat and potato starches are not widely used. Consumption of herbs
and herb extracts has increased significantly as a result of the beverage industry expansion. Spices have more
specific applications, and their use has also grown following a gourmet trend in the preparation of home-made
meals, and in restaurant menus and industry formulations as well.
The largest volume of food ingredients of natural origin is used for the manufacturing of confectionery and
bakery products, sauces and condiments, sweet and salty premixes, dairy by-products, and beverages. In
addition, pet food producers also use these types of ingredients.
Following an international trend, the F&B industry is constantly searching for new functional ingredients, which
provide an additional benefit in terms of health and nutrition, such as phytosterols, Omega-3 fatty acids, fibers,
and antioxidant compounds.
In Calendar Year (CY) 2010, Argentina?s imports of natural food ingredients were valued at approximately $700
million. The main ingredients imported were those which are not produced locally or their production is not
sufficient to supply the local industry, such as cocoa, pectins, protein concentrates and isolates, some spices,
some food supplements, ginseng, tomato and tropical fruit concentrates, and modified starches, among others.
There is local supply of milk powder, fructose, egg albumin, wheat starch, gelatin, lecithins, casein, fruit pulps,
glucose, citrus essential oils, etc.
The following data show interesting facts to better understand Argentina?s F&B industry:
1. According to private consultant OJF & Asociados, Argentina?s GDP in CY 2010, which was estimated through
the General Index of Activity (IGA, in Spanish), increased by 6.4 percent compared to the previous year.
2. The Index of Industrial Production for January 2011 increased by 10.3 percent, compared to January 2010.
Moreover, F&B production grew by 16.7 percent (food) and 6.3 percent (beverages).
3. The following is a list of products manufactured by the local F&B industry by volume:

4. In December 2010, the use of industry installed capacity reached a record level of 85 percent, which makes it
necessary to carry out investments to meet the growing demand of F&B.
5. Foreign Trade
In CY 2010, Argentina?s exports totaled $22.6 billion (1.3 percent increase compared to the previous year), of
which the F&B industry accounted for 33 percent.
Imports destined for the F&B industry during CY 2010 reached approximately $1.4 billion, up 36 percent from CY
2009, as a result of an increase in imports of products which are not manufactured locally, such as coffee,
cocoa, tropical fruit, and other more sophisticated products. Moreover, the local demand also increased,
especially among consumers of higher purchasing power.
The food categories which accounted for the largest food ingredient import share were as follows:
Product Thousand $ %

SECTION II. ROAD MAP FOR MARKET ENTRY
A. Entry Strategy
There are various ways to introduce food ingredients into the local market depending on the profile of the
company and the food ingredient involved. The following are a few recommendations to consider:
The presentation of the product to the food processing company may be done directly or through a
distributor and/or representative. There are a few local and/or regional distributors who are very well
known in the F&B industry. Another option is through a joint-venture.
It is necessary to identify the sector/s of the company where it is more convenient to present the food
ingredient offered. This is extremely important for the product to be evaluated by the appropriate
professionals. Larger companies usually have a R&D Division, which interacts actively with the
Marketing Division, especially if the ingredient is a novelty product. Other smaller companies receive
proposals of new ingredients through their Purchasing Division.
Besides presenting the product to the industry, it can be simultaneously promoted in specialized
magazines (focused on food, nutrition and health), at technical events (seminars, conferences, etc.),
and/or trade shows. Professionals with a high technical expertise usually attend these events.
B. Market Structure
The flow chart below shows the various steps that a U.S. food ingredient follows until it is incorporated into a
There is a significant market for some U.S. food ingredients among local producers of ingredients, who use them
to manufacture high-value, tailor-made food products through mixes and combinations of various inputs. This
system is very useful for both large and medium/small-sized companies.

E. Sector Trends
Argentina is a primary food producing country. Its vast extension, various climates, and diverse geography with
large maritime and fluvial areas, allow it to produce a wide variety of food products, of which many are
exported throughout the world.
Argentina produces the following foods with little or no processing:
Of vegetable origin: grains and oilseeds in large volumes (large oil processing capacity),
and fruits, vegetables, aromatic herbs, dried fruits, spices, and olives, among others.
Of animal origin: primarily, bovine meat, and poultry. Also, lamb, and pork and goat meat.
In addition, some specialty products among which there is an increasing international
demand for gourmet markets, such as snail, frog, iguana, and llama meat; and also sea
products, such as hake, squid, tuna fish, and spider crab.
These two groups of food products follow the trends listed below:
Specialized products (name of origin)
Safe products, produced under traceability standards
Organic foods (olive oil, herbs, wine, tea, yerba mate, etc.)
Regional products (Andean potatoes, amaranth, chia, quinoa, etc.)
The following trends have been observed in the processed food sector:
Sugar-free products, or with a low content of sugar (sacarose)
Fortified foods, with added minerals and vitamins.
Overall Trends in the Argentine F&B Industry
With a population of 41 million people, Argentina?s primary food production is significant and profitability is
closely related to large volumes. The expansion of the local F&B industry has focused on increasing exports and
competitiveness in foreign markets, and in the development of novelty products. The following are the main
trends observed under this scenario:
Consolidation of smaller companies, especially in the interior of the country, which manufacture smaller
volumes of regional specialty foods with a higher value-added, such as preserves, marmalades, dried
fruit, olive oil, and pickles. Many of these operations have created the Wine Road, the Yerba Mate
Road, the Olive Road, and trade shows such as Expolivo.
Production of organic products in response to an increased demand from foreign markets with a high
Expansion of functional foods, such as milk containing imported ingredients such as fiber, Omega 3, and
Larger demand of sodium chloride substitutes to provide a more agreeable taste to foods, without
causing health problems.
Foods enriched with calcium.
Beverage diversification through the incorporation to the market of flavored drinks, such as flavored
waters and waters with herb extracts, which have gained market share in detriment of traditional
Wider supply of craft beers, and increased consumption of traditional beers.
High-quality wines and sparkling wines have a strong presence and prestige in foreign markets, primarily
the Malbec, Syrah, and Merlot varieties, as well as the Torrontes variety.
The local dairy industry is continuously launching novelty by-products, such as cheeses and yoghurts,
both for the domestic and international market.
Herb teas have expanded as a healthy drink option. Raw materials for herb teas are both local and
There is an increasing demand of commodities, such as oils, grains, meats, dairy products, which are
used in the manufacturing of foods for the export market.
The F&B industry focuses on the production of basic foods in order to obtain higher margins, which
urges them to continuously demand ingredients that they do not currently produce and will not
produce in the near future due to a relatively small scale of production (eg.: non-nutritional sweeteners,
special thickeners and stabilizers, and nutritional ingredients).
A few companies have expanded in other countries, especially in South America, through the
installation of industrial plants.
Bakery products, dry pasta, rice, and canned foods have expanded significantly and novelty products are
being launched on a regular basis.
SECTION III. COMPETITION
Basic ingredients used in the F&B industry are primarily produced locally while more sophisticated
ingredients demanded for tailor-made food products are imported.
Primary imported food ingredients are: modified starches, thickeners, stabilizers, sweeteners, cocoa,
and fibers. The main suppliers are: the U.S., the EU, and Brazil.
Large multinational food ingredient companies have established in Brazil to supply the South American
Ingredients imported from the EU are less competitive due to the relatively high value of the euro
against the dollar.
SECTION IV. BEST PRODUCT PROSPECTS
The best opportunities for suppliers of food ingredients are among those F&B manufacturing companies that
offer high-value and novelty products to the consumer. The industry sub-sectors with a higher demand for
these types of products are as follows:
Condiments, seasonings, and spices
Non-alcoholic beverage products
Sauces, like mayonnaise (salad dressings are not consumed locally).
