About this Report

Executive Summary

TRENDS

  • Given the ongoing health-awareness trend (specifically weight concern), manufacturers are reorientating new product development towards healthier features, while looking to develop balanced formulations, in terms of convenience (ready to eat, easy to prepare) and natural, home-made properties, which have also become relevant for consumers who want to participate within the cooking process at a certain level (even if it is just adding water). Low fat, no artificial ingredients, fresh ingredients, gluten-free, vegan, cholesterol-free, less sodium, 100% natural and more natural ingredients are some of the latest product claims, depending on the product’s price segment (economy, standard, premium).

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • Nestlé Costa Rica SA continues to dominate sales of packaged soup in Costa Rica, and will reach a retail value share of 54% during 2014, thanks to its top-of-mind brand Maggi, which is by tradition the main reference brand within packaged soup in the country. Maggi benefits from economies-of-scale savings and its broad distribution system built throughout the country, being able to reach most retail channels and consumers in Costa Rica. Unilever de Centroamérica SA will follow with a 40% retail value share in 2014, thanks to its well-recognised flagship brand Knorr. Unilever has a similar powerhouse scale and resources, which has led it to participate in a broad range of categories (from beauty and personal care to packaged food categories), having access to significant ad budgets, such as in the case of Knorr’s latest ad campaigns.

PROSPECTS

  • In terms of dehydrated soup, in the forecast period manufacturers are expected to keep appealing to local eating traditions in order to strengthen consumers’ loyalty and boost brand-awareness, as well as maintain sales of their most popular or best-selling soup. New product development is likely to remain concentrated on health-orientated formulations, especially low-calorie, low-fat, low-sodium ones, and the further use of natural ingredients, in order to respond to the anticipated rise in health-awareness and weight concern among the local population. Also, soup consumers are anticipated to demand further levels of innovation and added-value futures as well as promotions and value-for-money deals.
