SOUPS
DURING THE COLD WINTER MONTHS, nothing quite hits the spot
like a hot cup of soup. In these times of convenience and grab-and-go,
the category continues to hold steady. Predictions of growth in the
global RTE market from Fact.MR, headquartered in the U.S. in Rockville,
Maryland, show an estimated CAGR of 5.9% from 2017-2022. Other estimates predict a more modest CAGR of 2.9% from 2019-2024.

depicts students seeking options that dovetail with flexitarian diets,
foods with a story and convenience. "Hot soup bars can be a great
tool to introduce consumers to unique flavors and ingredients that

marketing and sales planning, Kettle Cuisine, Lynn, Massachusetts. "It
is also a great way to offer complete, satisfying meals representative of
today's food trends of simple, clean and nutrient-rich soups."
Sixty-three percent of consumers take advantage of time-saving
solutions for dinner with partially and fully prepared meals, according to
the Washington, D.C.-based Food Marketing Institute.
That makes ready-to-go soup, chowder, bisque, chili and stew
options an easy accompaniment or a stand-alone option for a meal or
snack. To cover a variety of eating patterns, delis can supply smaller-sized portions geared toward individuals and 1-2 person families
as well as sizes for larger families and entertaining. But a quick option
doesn't mean the offering shouldn't also be memorable. Kettle Cuisine
looks to captivate soup lovers with its handcrafted fresh and frozen RTU
