Consumer’s eating habits are changing, stimulating the convenience food market to expand. Ready to eat packaging steadily gains popularity. The array of packaging varies from small bags for pieces of apple to trays for salads. Consumers expect ready to eat meals to be of high quality and bursting with nutrients. A label or gorgeous sleeve can convey a clear message of just how healthy the meal is. For instance, the number of vegetables, the division of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats can be printed on the label or sleeve.
From desire to acquire
good news: the majority of the Dutch people have the desire to eat healthier. More vegetables, more fruits, less candy, sugar, and salt. In reality, it proves to be quite a challenge to stick to these intentions while preparing a meal. Consumers point out that vegetables and fruits have limited shelf lives, and preparing a wholesome meal takes up a lot of time. The desire for healthy meals is clearly present, supermarkets come up with the answer on how to acquire a healthy meal: ready to eat packaging. This packing method is the solution, offering delicious, fresh and ready to consume products.
Healthy choices all around
Proof that the demand for ready to eat meals is huge, finds evidence on the supermarkets’ shelves. In the past, the famous Dutch stamppot (hotchpot) meal dominated the ready to eat shelves, nowadays a variety of acclaimed international meals, for instance, from the far east, Suriname and Italy dress these shelves. Ample choice is also offered for vegetarians and vegans. Moreover, ready to eat meals are not just prepared for dinner but are also suitable to be consumed as lunch. More and more people replace bread-meals with salads and bowls of mixed fruits.
