Scope And Methodology
This report groups gourmet/specialty foods into six broad categories, the first five of which—coffee and tea, confectionery and desserts, condiments, cheese, and pasta and grains—are examined in separate chapters of this report. The sixth category encompasses all other types of gourmet/specialty products. In general, Packaged Facts uses the terms "gourmet" and "specialty" interchangeably to describe the industry and products covered in this report. However, within certain food categories, the terms "gourmet" and "specialty" have particular, limited definitions, and for these, Packaged Facts follows industry conventions. Excluded from this report are alcoholic beverages. Also excluded are ready-made take-out meals ("home meal replacements") and service deli sandwiches, etc. that are prepared by foodservice providers, supermarkets, or other retail establishments and offered for sale through retail stores.
The information contained in this report was obtained from both primary and secondary research. Primary research entailed consultation with industry sources and on-site examination of the retail milieu. Secondary research entailed data-gathering from relevant trade, business, and government sources, including company literature such as annual reports, 10Ks, press releases, and marketing literature. Packaged Facts has derived sales figures from sources such as Information Resources, Inc. (IRI) InfoScan data and Supermarket Business consumer expenditure surveys. Figures provided on national consumer advertising expenditures are based on data (copyright 2000) from CMR, a Taylor Nelson Sofres company. The analysis of consumer demographics primarily derives from the Simmons Market Research Bureau (New York, NY) spring 2000 consumer survey, based on 33,502 respondents. Specific sources and methodologies used to estimate retail sales of the five categories covered separately are detailed in their respective chapters.
Gourmet Specialty Foods Market to Top $27 Billion by 2005
New York, July 16/PRNewswire –- The Gourmet Specialty Foods market in the United States has demonstrated an explosive compound annual growth rate of 7% for several years and passed the $20 billion mark in 2000. According to The US Gourmet Specialty Foods Market, a new report published by Packaged Facts and released by MarketResearch.com, the leading provider of global market intelligence products and services, this tremendous growth is expected to continue, propelling the market to top retail sales of $27 billion in 2005.
The new Packaged Facts report highlights several categories of gourmet/specialty foods, including the important markets of coffee and tea, confectionery and desserts, condiments, pasta and grains, and cheese. The US Gourmet Specialty Foods Market reports that the coffee and tea industry leads the gourmet/specialty foods market with sales of almost $4.3 billion in 2000 and is predicted to remain the fastest growing sector of the market through the year 2005.
According to the study, gourmet foods have enjoyed increased popularity in recent years as consumers have ceased to distinguish between gourmet items and mainstream products. This shift in consumer perception may be due to the availability of specialty items in supermarkets. Meg Hargreaves, VP of Publishing for MarketResearch.com, explains “The retail market for gourmet/specialty foods continues to expand as more venues have begun to carry a greater number of these products, leading to increased exposure and sales.” According to The US Gourmet Specialty Foods Market, 55 percent of gourmet/specialty food sales in 2000 were made in supermarkets.
The US Gourmet Specialty Foods Market reveals that the growing ethnic population of the United States has demonstrated a higher than average propensity to purchase gourmet/specialty foods, causing the popularity of these foods to boom. Also included in the report is information covering the trend toward the use of natural and organic ingredients in gourmet foods, opening the products up for distribution in popular natural goods stores and increasing overall sales.
