About this Report

Executive Summary

TRENDS

  • Despite the ongoing proliferation of franchised fast food outlets over 2013-2014 (due to urbanisation and the globalisation process) the increasing trend of health awareness and the hectic lifestyles of local consumers have prompted manufacturers of ready meals to increase their product offerings while also engaging in deeper levels of segmentation and innovation. In this context, faster cooking times, international recipes (risotto, pasta, rice, paella, pupusas and Chinese dishes), health oriented features (fat free, whole grain, no preservatives, low calorie), higher quality, natural ingredients, microwavable products, vegetarian formulations and family value packs were the most visible trends in 2014. In addition, the consolidation of high-end supermarkets and convenience stores has created opportunities in chilled ready meals, through the offer of a broad range of complete meals (presented in plastic containers) as well as popular and “gourmet” recipes, with these products gaining more space on refrigerated shelves in these modern grocery outlets.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • Local pasta producer Roma Prince SA remained the leading manufacturer in ready meals in 2014, accounting for a retail value share of 24%, benefiting from the strong positioning of its easy to prepare pasta brand Prince. This company’s success is derived from large economies of scale in terms of manufacturing and distribution. The remaining value share remained quite fragmented, with local fresh product manufacturers (Hortfruti from Wal-Mart) and distributors looking to exploit potential in prepared salads and frozen and chilled ready meals.

PROSPECTS

  • There is expected to be further specialisation in ready meals over 2014-2019, with manufacturers continuing to make efforts to tap into the potential in still unexploited categories, such as frozen ready meals and prepared meals (eg Auto Mercado with its Auto Deli line), especially in the case of the most versatile products (salads, sushi). New product development is expected to focus on increased convenience (easier and faster to prepare products), health-oriented products (natural ingredients and low calorie formulations) and novel recipes (inspired by global trends). In addition to offering dried products, mostly imported, aimed at the high end of the market, manufacturers could concentrate on offering competitive prices and family orientated value-for- money offers.
