About this Report

Executive Summary

TRENDS

  • With the horsegate at the beginning of the year, players face a serious challenge in 2013 in one of the most valuable categories of the packaged food market. The category already found it difficult to progress in volume in the middle of the review period due to the strong internal cannibalisation between the various sub-categories. In early 2013, given the rather high share of Findus in the country and the fact that Spanghero, one of the main protagonists of the Horsegate is French, France is more affected than other countries by the scandal according to Le Monde. According to all sources, sales of frozen ready meals record double-digits drop in February and March 2013 and other meat based canned/preserved chilled ready meals could pay for distrust from French consumers. A few week after the beginning of the scandal, one quarter of French consumers declare they stopped eating meat-based ready meals.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • Fleury Michon Groupe is the only player with a double-digit value share in 2013 is a rather fragmented competitive landscape. The French company garners an 11% value share and even succeeds in improving it in a difficult context for ready meals in 2013. Its leaderships relies on its strong position in chilled processed meat, its success in prepared salads (mainly within catering) and the offering of single portion microwaveable dishes of traditional French and ethnic food. Fleury Michon Groupe’s huge offering within chilled ready meals and prepared salads includes: Les Cassolettes, Les Pâtes Cuisinées, Les Poissons, Les Plats Cuisinés signés Joël Robuchon, La Gastronomie d'Aujourd'hui, Les Viandes et Volailles, Les 5 Essentiels, L'Esprit frais ! Les Gratins, Italie, Les Plats Cuisinés Bio, Les Ethniques, Cuisine Bien-Etre, Sur le Pouce, Les Exotiques and Vraiment. This latter brand is the response of Fleury Michon Groupe to Sodebo within boxes and includes 14 different local or ethnic recipes that are frequently updated. Fleury Michon Groupe even pays itself the luxury to be the only player that still progresses in boxes in 2012 and early 2013.

PROSPECTS

  • Players in ready meals will have to cope with three challenges in the short term. First, the horsegate deeply affected the category in early 2013 and manufacturers will have to demonstrate they deserve the consumers’ confidence. The example of Findus shows that transparent communication and better quality controls can help manufacturers to reconquer consumers. Then, players will have to keep loyal consumers at a time many of them come back to home cooking – with the assistance of culinary aids and dinner mixes for instance. Lastly, another challenge will be to match both the demand for higher quality and more accessible prices in ready meals, just when chained foodservice players such as McDonald’s are proposing promotional menus to develop other times of consumption than traditional day parts and when the fad for food trucks is taking off in France.
