About this Report

Executive Summary

TRENDS

  • The latest product development in spreads is natural formulations with 100% fruit, natural sweeteners and organic fruit, which are free from preservatives and artificial ingredients. This movement is mainly related to the increasing emergence of artisanal manufacturers which make wide use of the “Made in Costa Rica” label, which is associated with “natural” and “green” concepts. As a consequence of increasing interest in healthier products, manufacturers have focused on expanding their product portfolios, including low calorie alternatives, which vary between different formulations (from 30% less sugar to 50% and 80%). In the same line, peanut butter and chocolate-based spreads have started to modify their product formulations, eliminating or reducing certain ingredients, such as fructose corn syrup.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

  • The local company Productos Ujarrás SA remained the leader in spreads in Costa Rica during 2013 thanks to its traditional and well-positioned brand Jaleas Ujarrás. The company accounted for 44% of current value sales in 2013 due to its consolidated distribution system which reaches most grocery retailers across the country and its very competitive prices. In second place came Wal-Mart's private label brand Sabemas, which accounted for 19% of current value sales mainly due to its lower than average unit price and wide availability throughout the increasing number of Wal-Mart retailers. The rest of the sales of this category remained quite fragmented, especially as result of the broad number of local companies that manufacture similar traditional products (such as El Angel SA and Manza Té SA) and the increasing number of small local companies, which are venturing into the honey and marmalades market.

PROSPECTS

  • Spreads trends are expected to continue moving towards natural formulations with manufacturers benefiting from other fashionable factors, which are driving the sales of certain food categories, such as location, social and environmental issues and history of the product to add value to their products (especially in the case of artisanal and premium imported products). Low calorie or low fat options are expected to continue being key aspects of product development given the increasing number of consumers looking for products that help manage a specific diet. In general, global trends (in terms of flavour combinations and packaging) are anticipated to develop at faster rates in the local market due to the current globalisation process.
