Frozen food market in Europe: Premiumization of frozen food products
Premiumization of frozen food products is one of the key trends in the frozen food market in Europe which will drive the growth of the market. The general consumer perception about premium products is that they are made using high quality ingredients and are better than ordinary products is accelerating the sale of premium frozen food products. The players in the market are also introducing new products to tap the potential offered by the growing demand for premium frozen food products. For instance, in April 2016, Waitrose launched its premium private label brand under the brand name Waitrose 1. The lineup featured premium frozen ready meals.

Private-label products are relatively low-priced as compared to mainstream brands, which makes them a popular option among consumers who are budget conscious. The market share of private-label players is increasing in all the segments of the frozen food market in Europe. The increasing frequency of innovative product launches is enabling the private label brands to establish their presence in the frozen food market in Europe,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on food.
