Pandemic Changed UK Consumers’ Relationship With Breakfast Cereals

January 29, 2022: 12:00 AM EST
In a long article, the authors look at how lockdowns changed our relationship with breakfast. With breakfast eaten by 98 per cent of the U.K. population, according to Kantar, healthy breakfast options represent a massive opportunity. Although more people were eating breakfast at home during the pandemic, the meal was often taken later, and some consumers were cooking it rather than turning to cereals. The U.K. cereals category is dominated by the big brands. Darryl Burgess from Weetabix says they are backing their big brands this year and looking to bring in innovation after the successful launch of Weetabix Melts. It’s also reviewing pack sizes to optimize them for convenience retailers and the impulse channel. Another issue driving Weetabix’s innovation and communication efforts is impending HFSS legislation and the impact it will have on consumer preferences and expectations. All Weetabix-branded products, including its more indulgent options, are already HFSS compliant, and as a ban on HFSS promotions arrives, Weetabix wants to be sure retailers are ready to direct shoppers to healthy options.
