Market and consumer insights
Large sharing cakes hold a traditional place in the home of European consumers, serving fast and delicious treats to guest and family-members.
With such deep social roots, cakes hold a significant volume within our overall market, accounting for 6.5% of total volumes, second only to stroopwafels.
The market for small cakes has grown substantially year-on-year with a 4.4% CAGR in recent years, as consumers look for indulgent treats between meals.
Cupcakes, muffins and numerous smaller glazed and filled cakes have been introduced onto retailers’ shelves in a variety of flavours.
Despite the many renowned global brands in this segment, private label products account for over two thirds of the market by volume, offering both value and indulgence.
Across Europe, large cakes are presented in many different formats, varying from 300 to 800 grams. They are often bought for festive moments such as birthdays and high teas.
Our latest innovation in the small cakes segment is our range of award-winning party cakes: delicious vanilla and chocolate cakes with white or brown coating and decorated with coloured sprinkles.
