Executive Summary

TRENDS

  • Towards the end of the review period, the leading manufacturers of ready meals in France managed to progressively overcome the crisis which followed the horsemeat contamination scandal in 2013, resulting in a stabilisation of volume sales in 2015. However, a genuine and lasting recovery remains elusive due to the persistent declines in some categories such as frozen ready meals and shelf stable ready meals. The epicentre of the horsemeat contamination scandal that emerged in 2013 was ready meals, more precisely frozen ready meals, which dropped by 10% in current value terms in 2013 and receded by a further 3% in each of 2014 and 2015. Shelf stable ready meals was also indirectly impacted by the horsemeat contamination scandal during 2013 and 2014, with current value sales in the category receding by 1% in 2015 due to the outdated image of these products and their reputation for being unnatural. Finally, the challenging economic situation and the fad for home cooking urged a growing number of French consumers to prepare meals from scratch using raw and fresh ingredients, often with the use of culinary aids such as chilled processed vegetables, chilled processed meat and chilled processed seafood.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • Fleury Michon Groupe was the only player with a double-digit value share in the fragmented competitive environment in ready meals during 2015. The French company continues to benefit from its strong position in chilled processed meat, its success in prepared salads, mainly products sold through caterers, and the offering of single-portion microwaveable dishes of traditional French and ethnic meals. 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. After being indirectly negatively impacted by the effects of the horsemeat contamination scandal, it enjoyed a much better fate from the middle of 2014 thanks to its ongoing diversification toward all successful segments in chilled ready meals and prepared salads, often at the expense of private label products.

PROSPECTS

  • One great challenge ready meals in France during the forecast period is likely to be the competition it faces from the consumer foodservice industry, specifically the fad for food trucks which continues to spread in France at a time when independent full service restaurants are beginning to fare better than chained consumer foodservice operators. To meet demand for higher quality and more affordable prices in ready meals, paradoxically, the solution is likely to be to draw on the benefits enjoyed by operators in the consumer foodservice industry as the famous Sodebo Pasta Box, which resembles cartons of Chinese noodles, already did at the beginning of the review period. Recently launched products such as BBQ Boxes from Fleury Michon, after the success of Ball-In-Box from the same player, slices of chilled pizza, increasingly sophisticated chilled packaged sushi and generous and upmarket chilled salad-based meals should be developed further during the forecast period.
