Leading brands of ready meals in Great Britain 2016-2018, by number of users

This statistic shows a ranking of the most used brands of chilled or frozen ready meals* in Great Britain from 2016 to 2018. In 2018, an estimated five million people used Tesco branded chilled or frozen ready meals. This was followed by Birds Eye.
The retail value of frozen ready meals in Great Britain reached 674 million British pounds in 2017. While this amount is higher than in the previous year, it cannot match the 710 million British pound retail value seen in 2012.

According to a survey published by grocer.co.uk, less than half of consumers in the United Kingdom during 2017 believe frozen food is inferior to fresh food. The older a consumer is, the less likely they are to believe that frozen food is inferior to fresh food. 48 percent of consumers aged 16 to 24 years believed frozen food is inferior, compared with just 19 percent of those aged 55 years or more.

In the United States, an average consumer spends 60.04 U.S dollars per year of frozen foods.
