Industry Insights

The global artisanal ice cream market size was accounted for USD 6.0 billion, in 2018. The market is projected to grow at a significant CAGR during the forecast period.

Artisanal ice cream is made with natural ingredients, artificial flavors, and zero preservatives. These products have a short shelf life, which is of eight weeks, whereas industrial ice cream has a long shelf life. Thus, these ice cream product supplements are ready to eat demand for the food as dessert.
