About this Report

Executive Summary

TRENDS

  • Rising demand for healthy products with quality ingredients was the main development within soup in 2012. The fact that soup is typically a low-calorie meal means that it is very popular with health-conscious and dieting consumers, a segment that is growing larger than ever in Italy. In addition, the increased tendency towards convenience, quality assurance and diversified portfolios helped to fuel demand within the category.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • Compagnia Surgelati Italiana (CSI) led sales of soup in 2012. Unilever Italia SpA sold in 2010 the Findus brand to Iglo Bird’s Eye Frozen Foods, leaving the distribution duties to CSI. The Findus brand declined from an overall value share of 41% for its frozen soup line in 2010 to 35% in 2012. Despite consumer loyalty and the fact that the brand enjoyed strong awareness among Italians, the change in management has yet to reap any tangible benefits in terms of share, with Cia Surgelati Italiana posting the strongest decline in share in the category mainly due to a lack in innovation.

PROSPECTS

  • The soup category is expected see constant value sales rise at a CAGR of 2% over the forecast period, an improvement on the marginal declines seen over the review period. Volume sales are expected to see a continuation of the 3% CAGR seen over the review period. The key difference for the forecast period will be an easing of the strong unit price declines in constant value terms seen in the review period, as the premiumisation process helps to sustain prices to an extent.
