The big stories

Smaller artisanal brands are populating the premium condiments tier, and younger consumers trust them more to offer the permissible indulgence they seek. Meanwhile, big condiments with premium core variants have attempted to stretch further into premium. Or big brands have explored strategies to better connect with younger consumers.

In the next two years

Sweet and spicy Asian flavoured condiments will continue to redefine the flavour landscape in the West. Meanwhile brands attempt to find a role in more plant-forward diets, by simulating tastes and textures from meat protein. Better-for-you sauces & seasonings will also use ingredients offering flavour and functional health benefits.

In the next five years

Growing concern over climate change will mean consumers expect greener pack solutions as standard, eg refillable deliveries. Also brands will work harder to use compostable pack materials, and to perfect using tech to create synthetic ingredients, eg vegetable oils, focusing messaging on the sustainability advantages.

Expert analysis from a specialist in the field

Written by Martin Pasco, a leading analyst in the Food & Drink sector, his extensive knowledge delivers in-depth commentary and analysis to highlight current trends and add expert context to the numbers.

Western consumers, especially Generation Z and Millennials (b.1977-94), find it easier to trust smaller brands (perceived as more ethical), to deliver the clean label condiments they seek. But smaller condiment brands often struggle to deliver these benefits at a competitive price. Hence big brands can collaborate with startups to help optimise perceived value for money via economies of scale. Martin Pasco
