Packaged food market value in the United Kingdom 2015-2020 The market value of packaged food in the United Kingdom has increased annually in recent years. Between 2015 and 2019, the value increased by approximately eight percent to 72.6 billion euros. Further growth is expected in 2020, with projections estimating a value of almost 75 billion euros.
Ready meal popularity

Ready meals are a quick and easy alternative to cooking from scratch that require little preparation. The spending on chilled ready meals in the UK has increased significantly since 2007, rising by more than 50 percent to reach 1.6 billion British pounds by the end of 2017. The most popular brands of chilled or frozen ready meals are Tesco and Birds Eye, with an estimated five and 4.8 million users respectively in 2018.

Food packaging waste

As the popularity of packaged food increases, questions are now being asked about their environmental impact. In 2016, an estimated 2.3 million metric tons of plastic packaging waste was generated in the UK. However, despite an increase in recent years, just 45 percent of plastic packaging waste was recycled.
