Steady growth in the ready meals market

Sales of ready meals have been on the rise in recent years, as consumers are increasingly purchasing convenient ready meals in supermarkets and delicatessens, driven by their busy lifestyle. A 2020 research shows that 95% of Danish households have purchased ready meals in June 2020 (Source: GfK ConsumerScan. June 2020). And the market for ready meals is expected to grow by 13% from 2019 to 2024 (Source: Euromonitor 2020).

These are the highest rates in history – and tendencies that call for action. Retailers and food manufacturers should continue ensuring that ready meals are available to the consumers in stores, and packaging manufacturers should design convenient and innovative packaging that meet market demands. In brief, meeting consumers’ growing demands for convenient ready meals is more important than ever.

Two lid types are available; with or without venting, so you can choose the option that suits the situation.

The venting enables air to leave the tray while heating in the microwave oven and you do not have to remove the lid beforehand. The need for venting typically depends on the situation – whether the consumer picks up the meal in the supermarket and heats it up at home or the consumer picks up the meal in a restaurant and eats it right away at home.

The lids are liquid-tight, which means they prevent spillage during storage and transportation, and the trays can be heat-sealed for longer shelf life. Furthermore, the lids and trays are designed with pull tabs to enable the convenience of easy opening.
