The market for ketchup, mustard, and mayonnaise has shifted in response to American consumers' increasingly hectic lifestyles that translate into less time spent at home and even less time spent cooking. Many households are, therefore, shifting either toward quick meals at restaurants or to readymade meals. As the number of meals prepared at home has dropped, sandwich spread purchases have also declined. Also, with changing eating habits, consumers are switching to bolder and spicier flavors leading to the growth of other condiments, most notably salsa. Another reason for a flat sandwich spread market is the lack of product innovation.
