Overall demand for sugar confectionery in Portugal is set to remain stagnant, impacted by the health and wellness trend as consumers become increasingly concerned about their sugar intake. Traditional types of confectionery such as boiled sweets and lollipops will be hardest hit despite the efforts of major players to change this perception through the launch of sugar-free variants.
New legislation regarding the consumption of snacks in schools, which began in September 2021, which restricts the consumption of certain foods, namely lollipops or gummies, will profoundly affect volume sales in the category during the forecast period. Manufacturers will focus on seizing sales opportunities around parties, special occasions and celebrations when parents are likely to allow children treats.
Local player Lusiteca – Transformação e Embalagem de Produtos Alimentares SA is set to retain its leadership of sugar confectionery in 2022, despite continuing to lose value share in 2022. In May 2019, the player was declared insolvent and placed under judicial administration.
