Prepared seafood meals, including meal kits, will continue their rapid growth. With consumer confidence on the rise, Americans have the money to spend on prepared meals that are nutritious, that they can simply heat up at home, according to Steven Johnson, a grocerant guru at consultancy Foodservice Solutions in Tacoma, Washington.

“‘Fast, Fresh and Simple’ will be the retail meal mantra. Fresh prepared meal kits, meals and grab-and-go will drive retail foodservice occasions in 2017,” Johnson said.

“Prepared seafood offers fewer barriers to department entry for consumers that aren't comfortable with preparing raw seafood,” agreed Sarah Schmansky, director of account services for Nielsen Perishables Group.
