Hot and Cold Cereal - US - September 2019

"The hot and cold cereal category continues to experience consistent declines, hitting a five-year sales low of $10.3 billion in 2019 following a modest 1% decrease from 2018. The cold segment dominates cereal sales, and its performance largely influences category success or lack thereof, to no avail of hot cereal’s stability. Growth in the category will rely on moving past the breakfast occasion, embracing indulgence where applicable and holistic wellness innovation in less-indulgent segments."

- Kaitlin Kamp, Food & Drink Analyst

This report looks at the following areas:

Cereal sales continue to decline
Non-parents less engaged in the category
Consumers’ health expectations at breakfast may be unattainable for the category
