Consumers turn to sauces for effortless meal prep

Sauces give consumers the benefit of a home cooked meal without the time and energy required for scratch cooking. Almost three-quarters of consumers seek out “easy to prepare” when planning meals. Premade sauces can be positioned as a high-value staple to keep on hand when time or energy is lacking. Emphasising ease of use and versatility are key in proving value.

Gen Z needs encouragement to engage with sauces

As Gen Z enters adulthood with little cooking experience, sauces create an easy way to prepare meals with just basic cooking skills. Gen Z has the lowest engagement with all types of cooking sauces and marinades. Emphasising easy recipe ideas through social media channels and highlighting unique flavours and nutrition benefits can be a highly engaging way to connect with younger consumers.
