About this Report

Executive Summary

TRENDS

  • In 2013, the UK soup category is expected to report another year of positive growth as value sales are likely to rise by 5% to reach £776 million, continuing the upward momentum seen in 2012, while volume growth will be flat as soup already enjoys high penetration and frequency of consumption in the UK. As the category benefits from a large consumer base it is also very dynamic in terms of new product developments, which helps to further maintain consumer interest.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • HJ Heinz confirmed its leading position in the UK soups category, with a 39% value share, thanks to its lead in canned/preserved soups, in which it held two-thirds of the value sales. The company performed strongly in 2012-2013, with value sales rising by an expected 7% thanks to promotional activity but also targeted advertising campaigns, such as the Get Well Soon campaign run in Facebook which asked consumers to personalise can soups to be consumed by loved ones who are unwell. Heinz is expected to report strong growth of its Classic range. New product developments are playing a crucial role in the company strategy and in mid-2012, the Big Soup range was extended with six new varieties, which combine classic flavours with innovative ones, such as Angus Steak & Potato; Simmerin’ Sausage & Veg; Roast Chicken & Veg; Smokin’ Chicken & Bacon; Angus Steak & Onion and Angus Steak & Veg.

PROSPECTS

  • Sales of soup are forecast to maintain positive growth, and expected to rise by a CAGR of 3% over the forecast period to reach £907 million in 2018. However, the category is expected to be more static in volume terms with a CAGR of 2% over the forecast period, as soup already enjoys high penetration and frequency of consumption in the UK, among all age groups. In particular, instant soup is expected to contribute the most to constant value growth, with an expected 3% CAGR, as consumers will demand convenience and comfort foods at an affordable price due to their squeezed disposable income. Overall, the category remains very buoyant, and new players are expected to enter while competition from private label operators will also rise.
