With the growing demand for the consumption of healthier products, as well as the constant recommendations from health authorities and nutritionists to increase the consumption of vegetable protein, the consumption of beans and chickpeas is becoming more and more present in the diet of Portuguese consumers. The convenience of shelf stable beans assists in meeting this demand.
Consumption of frozen fruit has been growing in Portugal. Such products are a very convenient solution in the preparation of juices and desserts.
A high number of consumers have continued to spend more time at home through either lockdowns or having lost their jobs, leading to increased home-cooking. Initially, this was due to closures of foodservice channels, including hotels, restaurants, and workplace and school canteens.
Although processed fruit and vegetables will continue to see competition from fresh variants over the forecast period, with fresh products often more affordable and perceived as healthier by retaining their vitamins and minerals due to not being processed, there are still some vegetables whose sales in canned or frozen formats are preferred for convenience reasons, such as mushrooms, corn and pulses such as beans, chickpeas, lentils, and green peas. The concern with healthy eating has led consumers to increase their consumption of products such as canned beans and chickpeas.
Foodservice channels continue to face severe challenges with recovery still expected to be slow. Several months of closures have been followed by a steep decline in the number of consumers, both tourists and nationals, visiting on-trade channels.
With the post-COVID-19 economic crisis and lower consumer purchasing power, it is expected that there will be an increase in the weight of private label in the shopping basket. In some categories of processed fruit and vegetables, private label ranges are the leaders, as in the case of shelf stable beans, tomatoes, among others.
