About this Report

Executive Summary

TRENDS

  • Soup in Belgium continues to be consumed as a daily meal, thanks to it being perceived as an easy-to-prepare, affordable and healthy product. According to a study by Knorr, although, in 66% of cases, soup is prepared at home, Belgian consumers still like industrial soup. Soup is perceived as healthy, which leads 83% of parents to prepare it in order to make their children eat vegetables. Consumers are increasingly demanding low-salt products exempt of added flavour, although they are not willing to trade health for taste. Due to the economic crisis, Belgian consumers are continuing to look for affordable products, although, in the soup category, they are increasingly looking for premium products.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • Campbell Foods Belgium remains the leading player, with a 45% value share and a strengthened position in 2013, thanks to its Royco Minute Soup which lead instant soup. Unilever Belgium follows the leader with a 27% value share, thanks to the strong performance of its Knorr brand in UHT soup, canned/preserved soup and dehydrated soup. Private label rounds off the top three with a value share of 13%. Other prominent players include Iglo Belgium, New Covent Garden Soup Co and Pietercil Resta SA.

PROSPECTS

  • Soup in Belgium will continue to be consumed as a daily meal and to be perceived as an easy-to-prepare, affordable and healthy product. Consumers are expected to become increasingly health conscious and to therefore favour premium and fresh categories over others. Increasing trends in home cooking are expected to continue, leading consumers to cook their own soup at home or buy added-value products. Consumers are expected to increasingly demand products which are low in fat, salt and added flavour.
