"Sales of prepared meals turned slightly positive in 2015 after three consecutive years of declines, but remain below their 2010 level, weak results in line with a broader move away from more processed foods in favor of fresher and healthier alternatives.

Greater cuisine variety and packaging geared to snacking occasions could help to boost consumption, especially among young adults."
