Special offer: now 20% off original full report price

Many meal kit companies have come and gone in an increasingly competitive market environment in the last few years as meal kit companies have struggled in two primary areas: attracting and retaining new customers and successfully delivering fresh ingredients while keeping prices low. With a focus on “what’s next” – along with bringing decades of food and beverage market perspective and analysis to the table – Meal Kits: Trends and Opportunities in the U.S., 3rd Edition is packed with quantitative and qualitative projections to help meal kit companies, food and beverage producers, retailers, packaging companies, investors, and service providers gauge consumer perspectives and opportunities for growth in a rapidly evolving and competitive market.
  • After Amazon’s June 2017 acquisition of Whole Foods, the online food and beverage market has been changing rapidly as retailers have raced to compete with Amazon.
  • Blue Apron’s highly anticipated IPO made it the first publicly traded meal kit company in the U.S., but the company has struggled to maintain customers and has lost its spot as market leader to HelloFresh due to declining revenues.
  • Although subscription delivery services shaped the meal kit market, most of the major meal kit companies are offering their products through alternative venues to appeal to a wider audience.
  • Mergers, acquisitions, and partnerships are becoming more commonplace as companies are increasingly competing with alternative products and services.
  • Competitive meal options may offer greater advantages than meal kits, such as further convenience, increased shelf life, and lower price.
Meal Kits: Trend and Opportunities in the U.S., 3rd Edition delivers actionable predictions and recommendations designed to guide meal kit companies, retailers, service providers, food marketers, and investors in making business decisions by providing data and insights about the meal kit market.
