Increasing consciousness over health and wellness has been the key factors leading to the decline of ice cream and frozen desserts in the past decade. As part of the trend, concerns over excess sugar intake have mounted with sugar-laden ice cream being negatively impacted.
In light of the rapid expansion of dairy alternatives, including almond and cashew milk, which has quickly spilled over into cheese and yoghurt in dairy aisles, ice cream has also witnessed the emergence of non-dairy ice cream. An increasing number of players have introduced non-dairy ice cream, including Fiasco Gelato with its dairy-free ice cream and Fontaine Sante, coconut ice cream launched in late 2017.
In addition to the dynamism in non-dairy and “guilt-free” offerings, most of the efforts in new product development fall under experimentation with flavours, formats and styles as well as health and wellness. In the summer of 2017, Häagen-Dazs introduced spirits variants that “infuse” alcohol flavours into ice cream, apparently targeting adult consumers in search of exotic and interesting flavours.
Nestlé Canada and Unilever Canada continued to lead ice cream and frozen desserts in 2018. Both have a large portfolio of brands, nationwide distribution covering all major channels and freezer programs for retailers.
While there has been little change to the competitive landscape in Canada over the review period, disruption is likely to surface. Industry sources have noted both international and domestic companies are eyeing Canadian ice cream, especially the premium segment, with the latest example being Natrel brand, a premium dairy brand from Agropur, introduced ice cream in March/April 2018.
