Packaged food 2007 growth rate falls behind that of the review period
The packaged food value growth rate continued at a healthy 3.3% in 2007, although growth is slowing as Ireland’s economy is no longer achieving the double-digit GDP growth that it experienced at the end of the 20th century. This relative slowdown in macroeconomic progress helps to illustrate why packaged food as a whole is not maintaining the same stellar pace it had during the last few years of the review period.

The Irish want it faster and better
Convenience is very important to Irish consumers particularly, as the number of dual-income households increased over the review period. This consumer preference towards convenience foods is increasing because Irish consumers have less time, as working hours increase and personal time decreases. Although the Irish want to spend less time on food preparation, they refuse to sacrifice taste and quality. An ever-increasing amount of affluent Irish consumers are now spending more money, trading up to premium, fresher options such as chilled processed food.

Competition across the packaged food industry
Spanning a large range of products, the Irish packaged food industry has a multitude of major multinational and domestic competitors. A special consideration, however, should be given to the influence of private label, accounting for a larger share than any single manufacturer. The top 17 global brand owners (GBOs) (including private label) account for over half of the industry’s value. Several important acquisitions have occurred recently, helping to consolidate the market, perhaps the two most notable being undertaken by Largo Foods and Premier Foods Plc.

Shifts in distribution channels hurts independent food stores
Consumers are spending more of their packaged food budget at supermarkets/hypermarkets, convenience stores and discounters, such as Aldi and Lidl, and less at independent food stores and other retail channels. Both supermarkets/hypermarkets and convenience stores have been continually introducing new product innovations under their private label lines. These private label products are often less expensive than competing brands and, through proper positioning, they have become differentiated as high-quality items. Many traditional independent food stores (small Irish-owned supermarkets) in Ireland have been forced out of business because of increased competition from major grocery multiples such as Tesco and Super Valu.

What the future holds for Irish packaged food
It is expected that over the forecast period both volume growth and value growth will pale in comparison to that of the review period. The industry is beginning to become saturated and the national economy cannot keep growing at the phenomenal pace it had at the end of the last century. Irish consumers, who are richer than ever, will, however, continue to trade up to higher premium products and manufacturers will achieve growth through value-added product innovations.
