Ambient food producers may not have the short shelf-life issues of their colleagues in the chilled sector to contend with. But those manufacturing canned and dried products often have image and technical constraints to overcome, which new processes and marketing initiatives are helping to overcome. Keep in touch with the latest news from the sector.
What are ambient foods and why are they popular?
also what is an example please?
Best Answer: Foods that can be stored at room temperature. Dried foods tend to be fine for a long time at room temp...stuff like pasta, beans, rice, flour, sugar, etc.
You can also dry most fruit, veg, and meats. And some cheeses are drier than others and do better without refrigeration.
They are popular because they can be stored almost anywhere, indefinitely (as long as they are pest proofed.) If you are in a situation where you don't have electricity/refrigeration, it is important to have these kind of items on hand. Most of the world has hot weather at least half the year. You can't count on preserving your food in a snowbank.
