About this Report

Executive Summary

TRENDS

  • The convenience offered by packaged soup benefited the whole category, however consumers were also looking for natural and quality products. Soup is traditionally consumed at the beginning of a meal in Belgium, especially during winter months. The majority of Belgian consumers buy bouillon/stock cubes to make home-made soup and packaged soup is also popular with consumers. Consumers, of UHT and chilled soup especially, look for quality, freshness and the authentic taste of home-made soup.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • Campbell Foods Belgium NV strengthened its leading position in 2012, thanks to its Royco Minute Soup brand, which led instant soup, and Campbell's Délisoup brand, which ranked second in UHT soup. Trailing Campbell Foods another multinational, Unilever Belgium NV, largely owed its position to the strong performance of its Knorr brand in UHT soup.

PROSPECTS

  • Manufacturers are expected to continue introducing new exotic flavours, limited editions and recipes to encourage consumers to try new flavours to stimulate soup sales. Quality and authenticity will remain important factors for consumers. The recent trend towards snacking could impact soup sales positively in the forecast period. Alternatively, further economic slowdown coupled to a successful home-cooking trend could affect soup negatively as consumers will slowly review their eating habits and adapt their budget to new financial circumstances.
