Internet Retailing Changing the Packaged Food Landscape

Consumers are shifting a growing portion of their budget to the web. Packaged food has traditionally lagged behind other FMCG products online, but consumer interest in online grocery shopping is growing. Today, the web accounts for 1% of packaged food sales globally. Shelf-stable and high unit price products like baby food and meal replacement perform well online as consumers find it worth their time to shop around for the best price.

Veal: Evolving from “Cruel Meat” to Ethical Choice

Simone_BarokeAnalyst Insight by Simone Baroke - Contributing Analyst

The veal market is undergoing a slow but unstoppable revolution. There is a move away from age-old clashing viewpoints, which saw an unquestioning consumer acceptance of outdated animal rearing practices in traditional veal consuming countries on the one hand, and the outright rejection of veal as “cruel meat” in others. In line with rising animal welfare concerns, traditional veal eaters are starting to modify their expectations, while former veal rejecters are gradually getting used to the idea that veal can be produced humanely, and also that choosing veal represents a step towards sustainability.

Of crates and anaemia

Not all that long ago, from the standpoint of animal welfare watchers, eating veal was regarded just as abominable a culinary habit as the consumption of foie gras. However, unlike the latter, good-quality veal can indeed be produced without undue animal suffering. Great strides have been made in that direction over the last decade, and efforts are still ongoing.

A major milestone was achieved in 2007, when the EU finally outlawed the infamous veal crates, originally designed to restrict the animals’ movement in order to keep their muscles soft. In the US, although still legal, veal crates are used less and less, and the American Veal Association plans to phase them out by 2017.

Going Green Unlikely to Significantly Boost Western Europe’s Bottled Water Market

James MaddockAnalyst Insight by James Maddock - Packaging Analyst

Western Europeans love bottled water: in 2013 they drank over 45 billion litres of it. However, while it may be a valuable product to producers and packagers alike, the truth is that growth in per capita consumption rates are expected to slow over the forecast period. Packagers and/or brand owners will be hoping that breakthroughs in eco-friendly packaging will help to arrest this slowdown in demand, but successfully accelerating growth is likely to take more than this.

Growth in demand to slow in Western Europe

In 2013, Western Europe had the highest per capita bottled water consumption of any region, with only North America coming close. This high level of average annual consumption, which stood at approximately 93 litres in 2013, drives demand in the region, a sharp contrast with Asia Pacific. Asia represents a bigger overall market, but demand comes from a far greater number of individuals consuming at about one fifth of the levels that their Western European equivalents do. The bad news for packagers and producers alike is that growth in per capita consumption is expected to slow over 2013-2018, with North America set to overtake Western Europe as the region with the highest consumption rate by the end of the forecast period.

Top 5 Manufacturing Economies: What Challenges Are They Facing?

An HodgsonAnalyst Insight by An Hodgson - Income and Expenditure Manager

View An Hodgson's profile on LinkedIn

Four of the top five countries in terms of total manufacturing production are developed economies, with the exception of China whose impressive manufacturing might was built upon a pool of low-cost labour. Altogether the top five manufacturing countries accounted for 66.0% of global manufacturing output in 2013. Despite their dominance, each of the top five manufacturing powerhouses is facing a set of unique challenges that could change the future global manufacturing landscape. Understanding the challenges facing these top manufacturing economies can help businesses plan strategically as well as identifying long-term opportunities.

The Rise of Cycling Cities in Europe

Kasparas AdomaitisAnalyst Insight by Kasparas Adomaitis - Cities Analyst

In some Western European cities, private vehicle ownership rates are surprisingly low. This does not mean that the population living there cannot afford their own vehicle, but rather that commuting takes different forms in some of these cities: the spread of cycling seems to be one of the most important contemporary trends changing cities’ vibes and local lifestyles. In particular, cities in the Netherlands and Denmark are undisputed leaders in terms of share of cyclists as these countries have long cycling traditions and the relevant infrastructure. However, a number of other metropolises, as well as second-tier cities in Western Europe, are rapidly improving their cyclability.
