Breakfast is considered one of the most important meals in India and almost four out of five consumers eat breakfast at home. Right now, traditional breakfast options like fruit, poha/upma, and roti/paratha are the most popular choices.

In fact, Mintel research reveals that almost a third of Indians who eat breakfast would be encouraged to try packaged breakfast if it had authentic/home-style taste. Brands in the packaged breakfast space have a clear opportunity to offer traditional breakfast options and communicate freshness and authenticity.

In this video, Mintel takes a look at the key trends and opportunities for packaged breakfast foods in India, consumer purchase drivers, as well as recommended strategies for companies and brands.
