Total seafood highlights Total spend on seafood in multiples is nearly £1.6 billion in the latest year, an increase of 9.6% on last year. The strongest year-on-year value growth was seen by Tesco, followed by Waitrose and Safeway respectively. (52 weeks ending 29 February 2004) +8% Independents: 1% Co-ops: 2% Other non-grocers: 7% Freezer Centres: 2% Total seafood - share of spend +2% +6% SpendVolumeAverage price change since last year Other non-grocers (which includes fishmongers) experienced a 7% year-on-year decline in spend. Seafood has the one of the strongest year-on- year growth rates out of all proteins in retail. Total seafood reached its highest average price over the 4-weekly period ending 04 January 2004, when it reached £7.13 per kg. Multiples: 88%
Chilled seafood volume is almost as high as frozen, and with the current strong growth rate it is anticipated that chilled seafood volume will exceed frozen before the end of Total Seafood Chilled & frozen spend & volume
Total Seafood Multiples vs. non-multiples (expenditure) £1.79 billion £1.65 billion £1.56 billion * Please note that Marks & Spencer and Iceland are included in ‘Total Multiples’ Total spend Multiples (which includes M&S and Iceland) have increased their share of the total seafood market spend by 10%, while non-multiples lost 1%. Tesco hold the greatest share of spend and have seen the highest growth, with Sainsbury’s following closely. Strong growth rates for Asda means they are gaining market share on Marks and Spencer.
Chilled seafood expenditure exceeded frozen in 1996, but growth remained relatively static until From 1992 to 2003, chilled seafood expenditure has more than doubled and now stands at over £1 billion. Frozen seafood expenditure declined by £10 million over the period , but has since recovered. * Annual data is up to end of December/start of January. Long-term trends Chilled vs. frozen expenditure
Frozen seafood volume remains higher than chilled, but is currently in decline (year-on-year). Chilled volume is expected to surpass frozen before the end of 2004 if the current rising trend continues. Long-term trends Chilled vs. frozen volume

5 years ago 19 million households were buying chilled seafood in a year; between 1999 and 2001, 860,000 new households started buying chilled seafood. In the last year, over 20 million households have purchased a type of chilled seafood at least once. NB! Calculations based on 24.5 million GB households Total Chilled seafood Long-term trends in penetration (%)

Although less people are buying frozen seafood less often, higher volumes are purchased at each shopping trip (possibly due to promotions).
Total Frozen Seafood Expenditure - Branded vs private label Private label frozen seafood expenditure has increased by 12% since last year; the share between branded and private label frozen seafood is now almost the same. Looking at the 4 months since the start of November 2003, private label share of spend has actually exceeded branded (52% vs. 48%).
+22% -12% -20% % change 2004 v 2003 Negative press hit The effect of the salmon scare on the chilled natural salmon in retail market seems to have continued into February. Weekly volumes for the week ending 08-Feb-04 were 38% lower than the same week the previous year, however the volumes have since recovered. Please note that the drop in volumes cannot be solely attributed to the negative press coverage. -38% Chilled natural salmon 3-year comparison of weekly volumes (tonnes)

Shellfish Volume trends of natural chilled prawns by type Volumes of natural chilled warm water prawns have increased over the last three years; over the 4-weeks ending 07 December 2003, they reached their highest ever level of volume sales (341 tonnes). Natural chilled cold water prawns still represent the largest share of natural chilled prawn volumes (63%over the latest 4-week period) * Not applicable refers to prawns which cannot be identified as cold or warm water.
Shellfish Volume trends of natural frozen prawns by type Trends of natural frozen prawns are more erratic, possibly as a result of higher promotion activity. Higher sales occur over the Christmas and Easter periods. A small proportion of frozen warm water prawns are purchased in the retail sector (59 tonnes over the latest 4-weekly period). * Not applicable refers to prawns which cannot be identified as cold or warm water.
