Trends

Despite maintaining high retail values and remaining the two largest table sauces in terms of retail volume, ketchup and mayonnaise, these categories, which have traditionally been staples within the US, continued to experience flat or declining growth in 2016. Slightly smaller, yet similarly popular historically, products such as mustard and salad dressings, also experienced persistently flat or declining retail growth in 2016. The declining sales of these traditional staples occurred alongside rapid growth for products exhibiting ethnic and spicy qualities. Herbs and spices, soy sauces and chili sauces all achieved strong growth in 2016, experiencing retail value growth rates of 7%, 5% and 6%, respectively. This reflects a shifting preference among Americans, particularly younger generations, toward healthier and more flavourful products and a growing desire to incorporate into their diets dishes and ingredients from a wider variety of cultures. Attempting to adjust to these shifting consumer preferences, some manufacturers of traditionally popular condiments have attempted to incorporate spicy and ethnic qualities into their products. Late in 2015 ConAgra launched Gulden’s Sriracha Mustard and Stone Ground Dijon Mustard, while tomato processor Red Gold debuted ketchup and salsa products containing sriracha in early 2016.

Competitive Landscape

During the first full calendar year of 3G Capital’s merger between HJ Heinz Co and Kraft Foods Group Inc, the new Kraft Heinz Co maintained its dominant presence atop the US sauces, dressings and condiments category. This occurred in spite of slow and nearly flat value growth for the company in 2016, which was largely fuelled by a 4% decline in value for Kraft table sauce products. This was particularly true for mayonnaise and salad dressings that are becoming less popular, with millennial consumers increasingly demonstrating a preference for snack foods and ethnic flavours. As a result of the merger between what were previously the largest players in the category, this 2015 merger created an undisputed leader in sauces, dressings and condiments that immediately possessed a value share nearly twice that of its closest competitor, McCormick. Due to this significant share differential, Kraft Heinz managed to maintain its top position in 2016 in spite of both its struggles with millennial consumers and the strong value growth of many of its competitors.

Prospects

Sauces, dressings and condiments is projected to record strong growth over the forecast period, with retail volume sales steadily growing by 5% and retail value growing by 8% over 2016-2021. Consumers are increasingly interested in bold flavours and gourmet cooking, however the category also faces strong competition from foodservice establishments and especially snack foods, something to which some products within the category, such as dips, are adapting well. Millennials are leading the “snackification” of US food as they snack regularly, often in place of traditional meals. Foods that offer high-protein content and portability have seen explosive growth, and products, such as Greek yoghurt, snack bars and dips, continue to reshape the market. As the earning and spending power of millennials grow in the future, this trend towards snacking is likely to continue, limiting some of the potential for future growth from more traditional sauces, dressings and condiments, but providing strong opportunity for products that can adapt well to these snacking trends.
