Consumers in developed market pay more attention to these specifications and hence, the details on the front of the pack are very important. The consumer analysis of the label is playing an important roles in the sales of the product, and thus, in order to grab the consumer attention and to change the unhealthy image of products, manufacturers are offering clean label product which is stimulating the growth of organic protein over the forecast period.
