When it comes to condiments most consumers, especially millenials, search for exotic products that avoid unhealthy additions to food, according to a Packaged Facts report. As a result, more condiments and sauces are being marketed as organic and healthy as of late. Gluten-free, organic and non-GMO products are also cited as an increasing trend.
In 2017, there were 827.1 million unit sales of dressing and shelf stable condiments in the United States. Mustard and ketchup sales (pg 12) amounted to about $1.22 billion for the 52 weeks ending January 22, 2017. The retail value of the health and wellness sauces, dressings and condiments market also rose to approximately $24.4 billion in 2017, up from ~$23.1 billion in 2016.
Trends driving the condiment industry stem from more exotic and diverse flavors being introduced to the market, gluten free and organic options and environmental sustainability. Consumer concern with the health risks involved with additives and GMOs have also driven the market to produce health-conscious products.
SFA says consumers view premium attributes such as limited edition product versions as a plus. Keep in mind these attributes will help keep them engaged within the category, and open them up to exploring higher-quality products.
