Ready-to-Eat is Popular in Spain


Spanish retail and manufacturer association Aecoc has found in its latest Shopperview barometer that convenience is a great trend in food consumption. Currently 10% of the population order meals at home to complete their weekly menu, while 60% take their prepared food to work, compared to 37% who did so last June.

The number of consumers of ready to eat has doubled since the beginning of the health crisis, going from 9.1% in April 2020 to 18.2% last February.

A report by Kantar Spain found that 47.5% of those surveyed order food at home regularly. Of these, half place orders at least once a week, and 31% spend more than before the crisis on this type of service.
