About this Report

Executive Summary

TRENDS

  • The horsemeat scandal significantly impacted upon ready meals in 2013, damaging consumer confidence in ready meals, particularly frozen ready meals. Leading frozen ready meal manufacturers, such as Iglo Bird’s Eye, Tesco and Findus, withdrew products due to the presence of horsemeat within several product lines, and this adversely affected growth. The scandal also affected chilled ready meals, despite no evidence that these chilled products were involved.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • Private label remained the leading player in terms of sales. Tesco held its position as category leader, but saw its lead narrow over that of Sainsbury. Sainsbury was able to capitalise on its lack of involvement in the horsemeat scandal to increase its category share. Private label excels at adapting new product innovations by smaller brands, further diminishing the ability of brands to compete.

PROSPECTS

  • Slow growth is expected over the forecast period as a result of unresolved macroeconomic problems. However, prospects appear more optimistic for the forecast period than they were over the previous five years. Prepared salads and chilled ready meals, which represent a significant portion of the total ready meals category, will perform well, as consumers look to save money and time where possible. Both are susceptible to extensive product innovation, and are therefore unlikely to become saturated over the forecast period.
