Changing times for desserts

Desserts’aisles in grocery stores  reflect the changes in consumption habits.They represent €1.15bn and have progressed by 0.7%. The turnover of the dessert category has grown by +45% in a decade in Hypermarkets and Supermarkets. Compote purées are the best performer (+€185M), with sales almost doubling in 10 years. Ingredients for baking and pastries have been the 2nd best performer of the category with +€113M (+50%). In comparison, ready-to-eat desserts have decreased by -11%.

These trends show the French aspire for healthier desserts, and desserts that can be eaten on the go. The boom of compotes can be explained at 80% by the development of squeezable compote pouches with caps which almost tripled in 10 years.
