Executive Summary

Dec 2018
Stable growth in packaged food

Retail volume sales of packaged food registered marginal growth in 2018, with stronger dynamics in retail value. Danes are increasingly educating themselves about nutrition, which is leading to greater expectations of quality, for which they are prepared to pay higher unit prices.

The convenience trend transforms consumption patterns

The increasingly hectic lifestyles of Danes continue to create demand for convenient products. In order to be able to maintain the renowned Danish work/life balance, consumers are seeking quick and simple solutions for their meals more often than in the past.

Competitive market with successful local players

Generally the packaged food market can be described as highly competitive, with price being one of the key success factors. Discounting plays an important role, with special offer leaflets by supermarkets significantly impacting consumption.

Shopping list apps revolutionise grocery planning

Grocery planning is generally considered a time consuming activity with a rather low fun factor, although in 2018 there was an opportunity to take it to the next level. One of the most successful apps recently launched is called e-tilbudsavis, which contains all the offers from the major supermarkets, and users can add an item to their shopping list with just one touch, which is also shareable.

Increasingly hectic lifestyles drive growth of convenient products

The convenience trend, which is having a significant impact on the Danish packaged food market, is expected to develop further over the forecast period, as the driving factors remain and strengthen. Danes not only have to focus on work, but as their disposable incomes increase they wish to be more active, going out more often and enjoying experiences with the family.
