The North America fruits & vegetables market size was estimated at USD 119.08 billion in 2022 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.7% from 2023 to 2030. Consumers are spending an increasing amount of time and money on their health while looking to integrate fresh & exotic fruits and vegetables for healthy diet practices. Moreover, health-conscious people are preferring to buy locally sourced, organic fruits and vegetables and are willing to pay a premium price. This has led to a strong demand for fruits & vegetables in North America. Online grocery shopping & delivery services have further driven product purchases, thus driving market growth.

Consumers, particularly working professionals and millennials, are opting for online grocery shopping in North America, owing to the various advantages of this mode, such as convenience and doorstep delivery. Online grocery purchase allows customers to order fresh produce from their homes, avoiding the need for time-consuming trips to physical grocery stores. This particularly appeals to older adults with mobility issues, who prefer avoiding crowded shopping environments.

Moreover, the rising popularity of trendy diets and superfoods has driven the consumption of fruits and vegetables. Their popularity has vastly impacted the consumption patterns of fruits and vegetables in the North American region. Consumers are increasingly focusing on their health and well-being and thus adopting dietary patterns that highlight the significance of nutrient-rich plant-based foods.

Superfoods such as kale, avocados, blueberries, and acai berries, known for their strong nutritional profiles, have become dietary staples. Moreover, diverse diet trends, such as plant-based and Mediterranean diets, emphasize the pivotal role of fruits and vegetables in improving health and preventing diseases.

Consumers in the United States are increasingly prioritizing fresh fruit and vegetable intake as they dedicate more resources to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Millennials remain the dominant purchasers of vegetables and fruits in the U.S., on account of their extensive online presence. Online retailers are using tactics such as cashback incentives and discounts to appeal to this demographic, a trend that is expected to persist in the near future.

Furthermore, there has been a substantial shift among consumers toward fresh, health-conscious food choices, owing to the escalating obesity rates in the region and a rising awareness regarding the benefits of nutritious diets. Younger age groups are particularly inclined toward trendy diet patterns such as raw food and paleo, which place a strong emphasis on the health advantages of consuming fresh produce.

In 2022, as per the International Food Information Council, around 52% of Americans followed a specific diet pattern, which was a significant increase from 2021. This increased adoption of specific diets and eating patterns in the country signifies a growing awareness of the importance of food in health and well-being. This awareness is expected to continue driving the demand for fruits and vegetables in the region, as consumers understand their importance in achieving various health-related goals.

Distribution Channel Insights

In terms of distribution channel, the supermarkets & hypermarkets segment accounted for the highest market share of 55.7% in 2022 in the North American market for fruits & vegetables. Several factors drive consumer preference for their fruit and vegetable buying behavior at hypermarkets and supermarkets. These include pricing, convenience, brand recognition, and product availability. Hypermarkets and supermarkets provide a comprehensive shopping experience, enabling consumers to search for a variety of products, including fruits and vegetables, all in one location.

North America Fruits & Vegetables market share and size, 2022

The online segment is anticipated to register the fastest CAGR of 6.0% over the forecast period. Online platforms play a vital role in offering consumers access to a variety of vegetables and fruits, including seasonal and specialty products that might not be available readily in local stores. The importance of online purchases became even more apparent during the outbreak of COVID-19, which led to temporary and permanent closure of physical distribution channels. However, the sale of fruits and vegetables through online modes such as e-commerce portals and online grocery stores experienced a notable surge in and after 2020.

Product Insights

Based on product, the fresh fruits & vegetables segment accounted for the highest revenue share of 80.8% in 2022 in the North American market. The availability of these products faced challenges during the pandemic due to logistical and transport restrictions. There was a concurrent growth in demand for fresh fruits and vegetables. This demand was driven by consumers who, in response to the pandemic, increased their focus on maintaining a healthy diet and incorporating more fresh produce into their food patterns, opting for these products over processed or frozen foods.

The dried fruits & vegetables segment is expected to expand at the fastest CAGR of 6.8% through 2030. The rising popularity of plant-based diets has significantly contributed to segment growth. As per an article from the Alliance for Science, as of January 2022, around 10% of American adults aged 18 years and older identified as vegetarian or vegan. This shift in dietary preferences has led many consumers to reduce their meat consumption and seek alternative sources of nutrition and protein. Dried vegetables and fruits have emerged as a quick and cost-effective way to incorporate plant-based protein and essential nutrients into meals.

Regional Insights

The United States dominated the regional market with a revenue share of 78.0% in 2022. There has been a noticeable shift among consumers toward health-conscious and fresh food choices, owing to the rising obesity rates and awareness regarding the benefits of nutritious diets in the country. Younger demographics are particularly inclined toward popular diet patterns such as raw food and paleo, which place a strong emphasis on the health advantages of consuming fresh produce.

For instance, to support the state's agricultural industry, Georgia has established several initiatives and programs to help farmers improve their operations and boost their profitability. An example is the Georgia Grown program of the Georgia Department of Agriculture, which promotes locally grown produce and other agricultural items, and other marketing efforts by the department.

However, Canada is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.7% from 2023 to 2030. The Canadian fresh fruits and vegetables market has experienced strong growth, mainly aided by the surge in healthier eating habits among consumers in the country. This rise in health consciousness serves as a significant driver of market expansion in Canada.
