Data also shows decline in frozen ready meals as Whitbread calls for overhaul of how processed meat industry is regulated
Sales of frozen beefburgers have decreased by 43% since the start of the horsemeat scandal as shoppers steer clear of products they fear might not be quite what they claim on the label.
Data from market research firm Kantar Worldpanel shows sales of frozen ready meals have also been hit, down 13% since the Food Safety Authority of Ireland said in mid-January that it had found horsemeat in beefburgers destined for sale in retailers including Tesco, Lidl and Aldi.
The figure also shows Tesco, which was one of the most affected after 100% horsemeat was found in its own-brand lasagnes, suffered its worst monthly fall in market share for at least 20 years in the four weeks to 17 February. Kantar said this was more likely because of a reduction in big promotions compared with a year ago, rather than shoppers staying away in protest against the scandal. However, retail analysts at Barclays said Tesco “may indeed be suffereing a degree of consumer backlash”.
Edward Garner, director at Kantar, said: “There is still a huge rebuilding of trust for retailers to do. We won’t see a bounce back in frozen meat sales for a while, until this has been resolved in the courts.”
The supermarket chain Morrisons, which runs its own abattoirs, revealed last week it had seen a boost in fresh meat sales. There have also been increases
