About this Report

Executive Summary

TRENDS

  • In 2013, retail sales of ready meals see slow growth, increasing only marginally in current value and declining in volume terms. The category, however, still brings in a whopping C$4.5 billion, with frozen meals, pizza and salads accounting for the majority of sales. Saturation and competition from take-away options, home delivery and fast food restaurants continue to affect sales, as does significant retail competition that lays strong emphasis on sales, discounts and promotions, thereby often undermining the category growth. However, tendency towards freshness, convenience and ethnicity create opportunities for product development to support growth.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • Overall, the Canadian ready meals marketplace remains quite fragmented, not least due to difficulties of building a national brand in categories like chilled meals, due to logistics of delivering fresh products across the country. However, the strength of Nestlé in leading categories – frozen meals and frozen pizza – help the company to stand out and take the number one spot.

PROSPECTS

  • Over the forecast period, retail sales of ready meals are expected to show a negative CAGRs of 1% in constant value and volume terms, reaching C$4.4 billion. While it is expected that the manufacturers and marketers of ready meals will be able to add value to sales through product development and portion/package control (smaller sizes), saturation, competition from foodservice (especially take-out, home delivery and fast food), as well as strong retail competition that reduces the ability to drive prices significantly up, will all translate into a generally weak performance. Pockets of growth, however, are expected in chilled meals and salads, which can compete well on freshness, quality and healthier nutrition.
