Executive Summary

Dec 2018
The category is expected to grow thanks to new product developments

Ready meals is a category growing because of new product launches. This is expected to continue since there are many new products likely to emerge over the forecast period.

Urban lifestyles merge with increasing product diversity to enhance growth

The working population is now less willing to spend time on food preparation in favour of spending time on higher-quality activities. People in work are also health-sensitive as they tend to consume healthier alternatives to home-made meals, which makes them a great demographic to lead forecast period growth in ready meals.

Single-portion meals are expected to attract students and young professionals

Portions of ready meals are expected to shrink further to meet the needs of students, singles and businesspeople that do not have time to cook. Ready meals in this sense is predicted to develop alternatives to foodservice-specific meals such as doner kebab, meatballs, stews and rice, to bring a price advantage and time-saving solutions to consumers.

Private label frozen pizza continues to lead

Private label products are mostly sold by discounter chains. The share of private label is the highest in frozen pizza, a category preferred by younger people of lower-income families.

Nisfud Gida San Ve Tic AS records the highest increase in share

Nisfud Gida San Ve Tic AS has quickly become prominent in ready meals, specifically targeting frozen ready meals and frozen pizza with its Nefista brand. These two categories are highly dynamic and the company is meeting the demand from consumers seeking value for money.

Domestic companies dominate the category with traditional meals

Ready meals is a category that is made of mostly traditional dishes and this makes the category attractive to most consumers because traditional dishes are the hardest to cook at home. Turkish consumers are more interested in products they cannot make at home or the ones that need expertise.
