About this Report

Executive Summary

Chocolate Confectionery

TRENDS

  • Increasing pressure from the government and the medical profession as well as negative media coverage about the side effects of sugar consumption weigh heavy on consumers’ minds. Overweight and obesity are of major importance in economic terms. According to a study commissioned by the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH), disease-related costs from being overweight or obese in Switzerland have doubled since 2004 and account for CHF3.8 billion of total healthcare expenditure in Switzerland. Moreover, the proportion of overweight and obese children is projected to continue to rise until 2022 to reach 17% of boys and 23% of girls aged 6-12/13 years, according to the latest figures published in 2009 in the same study.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • Migros Genossenschaftsbund eG remains the leader in chocolate confectionery in 2012 with a 19% value share. Migros is the leading supermarket chain in Switzerland and offers a wide range of products, mainly private label, from economy to premium. The chain’s most prominent private label chocolate confectionery range is Frey. Chocoladefabriken Lindt & Sprüngli AG ranks second in 2012 with a 13% value share. The company relies mainly on its worldwide popularity as a “Maître Chocolatier” and manufacturer of fine chocolates. Ferrero Schweiz AG and Nestlé rank joint third with a 7% share.

PROSPECTS

  • The health and wellness trend is set to have a stronger impact within chocolate confectionery over the forecast period due to the fact that consumers are becoming increasingly concerned about its negative effects. Any future growth within chocolate confectionery will most probably depend on the introduction of reduced-sugar or reduced-fat variants.

Gum

TRENDS

  • During the review period there was intense competition between the major players which were trying to compete with each other through new launches and flavours in an attempt to drag consumers away from chocolate and sugar confectionery and towards gum. 2012 has been characterised by new products in the premium segment, a large number of promotions and growing interest in gums with functional benefits.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • Cadbury Switzerland Faguet & Co, which was acquired by Kraft Foods Inc in 2010, remains the leader in gum in 2012 with a 49% share of total value sales. Ranked second is Migros Genossenschaftsbund eG with a 19% share owing to the continued success of its impressive private label line. Ranked third is Van Melle AG, owner of the Mentos brand, with a 6% value share.

PROSPECTS

  • Gum is expected to continue to maintain its positive growth over the forecast period. The category is expected to benefit from consumers’ growing interest in health and wellness, which will positively impact sales of both organic and functional variants.

Sugar Confectionery

TRENDS

  • As the health and wellness trend is gaining ground, the sugar confectionery category will be the main loser. Ever since the correlation between sugar and obesity was confirmed, standard sugar confectionery has been under severe pressure from its competitors, the media and consumers. Sugar confectionery contains high quantities of sugar and therefore it is high in calories and detrimental to teeth. The increasing problem of child obesity (one in five children in Switzerland is classified as overweight and this rate is three times higher than 20 years ago) and the growing perception of sugar confectionery as unhealthy have strongly influenced the performance of the category and benefited sugar-free variants.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • Switzerland’s leading retailer Migros continues to lead sugar confectionery in 2012 with a value share of 17%. Its private label lines offer products in the economy and premium segments and enjoy considerable consumer trust in Switzerland. Haribo GmbH & Co KG and Ricola AG rank second and third, respectively, with shares of 7% and 6%, followed by Wrigley with 4%.

PROSPECTS

  • Sugar confectionery has received negative media and public coverage over the past few years because it contains high quantities of sugar and therefore is bad for children’s teeth. As a result, the growing perception of sugar confectionery as unhealthy is expected to negatively influence the category, which is set to post only marginal growth over the forecast period in constant value terms.
