About this Report

Executive Summary

TRENDS

  • In 2014, ready meals saw slight growth in value terms, increasing by close to 2%, but declined by 1% in retail volume terms. The category reached a total of C$4.7 billion in retail sales, led primarily by the sales of frozen ready meals, pizza and prepared salads. In general, both male and female consumers in the millennial and boomer generations are part of the workforce, and many have less time on their hands to cook and when they do cook, they cook meals that require less preparation. The “grab and go” meals that can be picked up quickly in grocery stores are a simple alternative to home-cooking and a time saver for many consumers. At the same time, market saturation, slow population growth, an increasing immigrant population, which tends to prefer home-cooking and frequently shows a preference for fresh products, as well as the growth of foodservice and freshly made takeaway options are affecting the category of packaged ready meals unfavourably.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • Nestlé Canada is the leader in 2014. The company has a large product portfolio in ready meals, and the popularity of the brands is able to sustain its strong position in frozen meals. Currently Nestlé has a 42% value share in frozen pizza and a 24% value share in frozen ready meals. The popularity and high sales generated by the brand Delissio in frozen pizza make it the go-to brand for many consumers. In the frozen meals category, the Stouffer’s bistro line has also seen updates to its product range. For example, the new product Mega Meat Mega Cheese Mini Bun adds more options to the line.

PROSPECTS

  • Over the forecast period, retail sales of ready meals are expected to remain flat in value (at constant 2014 prices) and volume terms. The overall direction of the category is headed towards healthier alternatives and more meal choices. Value-added products will be necessary to entice consumers to buy packaged meals. Manufacturers will look to add value to sales through product development, portion/package management in terms of controlling portion sizes and new flavour development. This category faces competition from foodservice (especially take-out, home delivery and fast food), a growing industry in Canada.
