Food warming trays are used for warming food items up to a desired temperature over a flat warming surface with thermostat temperature control. Food warmers are a minor but important investment. Keeping food at the right temperature helps prevention against food-borne illnesses.
Increasing demand for maintaining optimal temperature of food being served is a key driving factor of the food warming trays market. Food must be heated to at least 75 degrees in order to reduce the amount of bacteria and obtain a safe level for consumption. Temperature is just as important as storing food when it comes to cooking or re-heating of food. Even when food is properly refrigerated, there still exists possibility of bacteria in it. Therefore, heating of food to the right temperature lowers the risk of food poisoning. Once the food has been heated to the required temperature, it should not be allowed to drop under 60 degrees until it is served. This goes for both cooking and reheating of food and is fueling the growth of the food warming trays market. However, the prevailing market comprising counterfeit and pre-used food warming trays is acting as a major restraint to the growth of the food warmer tray market. Counterfeit products are often low-cost and, therefore, have high demand. This is affecting the food warmer tray market.
