  Ingredients and industrial (semi finished) food products are typically manufactured by food companies,then sold to customers which are also food industries or professionnals in food processing. These later ones are simply located more 'downstream' than the first ones within the increasingly complex chain of elaboration of the final food products eaten by people.

  This pattern is becoming increasingly relevant for a large proportion of food manufacturers :
  65 % are already regularly buying ingredients and semi finished food products ;
  40 % already sell such food products intended for subsequent industrial use, although the percentage of their global turnover represented by such sales may widely vary from one company to another (from 100 % for BtoB specialists down to a few % for some companies not yet fully organized to develop this specific business)

  The demand for ingredients and semi finished foods is promoted by long-term trends :
  * Worlwide increase in consumption of ready-to-eat products and of meals consumed outside home
  * Increased diversity of products and of their culinary inspirations, stimulated by the mobility of people and goods
  * Evolutions of the food industry similarly to other businesses (car industry, electronics...)
     > Marketing & industrial specialization on 'core businesses and processes'
     > Spreading of missions between final assemblers of heavily marketed consumer foods, and upstream providers of specific food components or contract-operated processes
     > Constraints of food hygiene and safety, of environnement and profitability going against the multiplication of the processes within a single food plant.
