Sales in the $44 billion U.S. retail market for frozen foods have been flat to declining, with nearly all dollar sales gains attributable to inflation or new products—not to increased consumer demand. Contributing to this stagnation are the nation’s slow economic recovery; changing consumer eating patterns, shopping patterns and demographics; lack of excitement in frozen foods categories and merchandising; retailers’ increased focus on the fresh foods perimeter to the detriment of center store categories; and competition from fresh foods (including prepared fresh foods), shelf-stable foods, and restaurants. This situation presents huge challenges and opportunities for marketers and retailers. Already, major marketers such as ConAgra, Heinz, and Unilever are slimming down and refocusing their brand portfolios. The crucial question is whether—and how—marketers and retailers can reinvent and re-emphasize frozen foods to re-attract consumers to these core center-store categories.
Frozen Foods in the U.S., 4th Edition, a fully updated Packaged Facts report, examines frozen foods across four classifications: Center Plate (frozen dinners/entrees, frozen hand-held non-breakfast entrees; frozen poultry, seafood and meat; frozen pizza; frozen pot pies; and frozen baby food); Vegetables, Appetizers/Snacks, and Sides (plain and prepared frozen vegetables; products positioned as appetizers/snacks or frozen side dishes; and other meal components such as frozen bread/dough, frozen pasta, frozen tortillas, and frozen sauces, gravies and seasonings); Breakfast Foods (waffles/pancakes/French toast; frozen breakfast hand-held entrees; frozen breakfast entrees; and other frozen breakfast foods such as bagels, muffins, and frozen egg substitutes); and Frozen Desserts (including frozen whipped toppings, frozen sweet baked goods, and frozen cheesecakes; frozen pies; frozen fruit; and frozen cookie dough and cookies—ice cream and frozen desserts are excluded). Building on the market tracking and forecasting of previous editions, the report forecasts market size and growth; examines the factors influencing this market; highlights key marketing tactics and new product introductions; and analyzes the demographic and lifestyle shifts representing calls to action to meet the needs of today’s shoppers.
Key data sources include SymphonyIRI Group’s InfoScan Reviews quantifying retail mass-market sales at the marketer/brand share level, Experian Simmons national consumer surveys gauging purchasing patterns, a proprietary Packaged Facts online consumer survey conducted in August 2012, data from SPINS, Inc.’s SPINSscan service tracking sales in the natural supermarket channel, and information was gathered from government, business, and trade media. The report contains dozens of numerical tables and graphs, as well as numerous photographs of new products.
