About this Report

Executive Summary

TRENDS

  • Chilled soup gained both volume and value share within the soup category in 2014 as fresh chilled varieties grew at a faster rate than other types of soup. Chilled soup has become something of a staple in supermarkets across the UK, especially within convenience stores, where such products are positioned close to chilled sandwiches and snacks. Chilled soup offers an alternative to sandwiches for consumers shopping for their lunch. The versatility of chilled soup adds to the strength of this category as flavour options are extremely diverse.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • HJ Heinz Co continued to lead soup sales in 2014 as the company’s famous range of Heinz brand soup remains popular across the country. Almost as well-known as Heinz tomato ketchup, various Heinz canned/preserved soup products can be found in the majority of kitchen cupboards in the UK. In 2014, in addition to its core product range, HJ Heinz Co Ltd focused on product development with a range of “black label” soup that added more exotic-flavoured variants to the Heinz Classic and Heinz Big products, among others, in its range. Such strong innovation is typical of Heinz; in 2011 the company released a range of “Get well soon” soup that attracted significant consumer attention for the brand. However, despite impressive product development, HJ Heinz Co struggled to match soup category growth and value share declined marginally over 2014.

PROSPECTS

  • The strongest growth over the forecast period is expected to be recorded by the instant and chilled soup categories. Consumers generally perceive canned/preserved soup to be of a lower quality than chilled soup because of the former’s presentation in traditional metal can format. As a result, consumers are expected to continue shifting their purchases towards the chilled soup category. Instant soup will be largely unaffected by the competition between canned/preserved and chilled soup because consumers tend to purchase instant soup as a snack rather than as a product to be consumed as part of a meal.
