The impetus behind the campaign to eat more whole foods and less processed foods is clearer than ever. Packaged foods are often getting a bad rap for their extended ingredient lists that include trans fats and sodium, but not all packaged foods are being produced with apathy towards the ideals of health and nourishment. More healthy choices are available nowadays than a few years ago, credited mainly to health-minded customers who value quality and required convenience. Unilever has entered into an agreement to obtain US supplements business Onnit for a classified amount. Onnit is a holistic wellness and lifestyle company. Also, it offers a variety of packaged food products, counting Fatbutter nut spreads and snack lines such as Protein Power Puffs and Protein Bites. Its products which also consist of sports nutrition supplements such as glutamine and creatine, and products to assist sleep, are found in stores together with Whole Foods Market and Sprouts, and Amazon who also sell them.

Though, the packaged food industry does face certain interferences to its progress. The low availability of raw materials as certain crops are seasonal and thus is causing a delay in the whole process, which can be costly. Farmers need investment in gear and fertilizers to develop the quality of their harvest. In many circumstances, there is an absence of storing infrastructure, which causes food wastage and loss. Furthermore, there are certain rural areas with poor connectivity to locations where food processing units are located. As a result, the crop takes a lot of time to arrive at these units, again leading to a lot of waste. Finally, there is an urgent necessity to accept technology as much of the harvest is reviewed by hand, and farmers fall behind in the competition with the worldwide market.
