About this Report

Executive Summary

TRENDS

  • Although the worst is over, sales of ready meals are slow in improving in 2014. At first sight, this is logical: The epicentre of the horsemeat scandal that started in 2013 was in ready meals, more precisely in frozen ready meals, which dropped by 10% in current value terms in 2013 and still recedes by 5% in 2014. However, ready meals is also facing other issues such as the cannibalisation between its categories (frozen pizza Vs chilled pizza, for instance) and mainly the sudden slowdown of its previous growth driver, the segment of single-portion ready meals and snacks from 2013. Initiated by Sodebo in 2009 and considered the ‘top concept’ in meal solution, ‘boxes’ such as Pasta Box - ready meals offered in folding cartons which are designed for rapid consumption at home, in the office or on-the-go – suddenly reached saturation at the end of 2013 and ranks among the flops in 2014.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • In a rather fragmented competitive environment, Fleury Michon Groupe is the only player with a double-digit value share in 2014. The French company leads the way with an 11% value share thanks to 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.

PROSPECTS

  • Ready meals should continue to face some challenges in the short term. First, manufacturers worry about the slowdown of ready meals to eat on-the-go such as single portions and snacks that have not recorded double-digit growth since the middle of the review period. 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 when the fad for food trucks continues to spread in France and when chained foodservice players, such as McDonald’s, KFC and local brands in fast casual dining are gaining ground.
