As depicted in Salad Dressings in the U.S., a new report from Packaged Facts, the salad dressing market has been relatively flat over the past five years, and should grow slowly, if not steadily, over the next five years. The market leaders, including Kraft, Unilever and Clorox, have suffered sales losses between 2004 and 2005 (while more niche marketers, such as Ken’s and T. Marzetti, have enjoyed sales upticks).
Certainly any effort to encourage people to eat more vegetables will be a plus to salad dressing marketers. But the response has to be smart - dressings are often associated with fats, calories and sugar. Marketing dressings that are positioned on health, new flavors, and even natural/organic, are but a few of the ways food companies return to their salad days.
