The Single Serve Revolution    

The Pendulum swings!
50 years ago, almost all consumer goods were in smaller packages than are standard today. As wholesale distribution prospered, family size and mega-packs became the norm by the 1990’s, with cost/volume driving decisions. Interestingly, this phenomenon did not take hold in Europe, when home sizes were generally smaller.

Flash forward to today. Major metropolitan cities in North America are dominated by condos – with much smaller footprints. Storage becomes an issue. And the cultural and demographic trends shift the focus from cost savings to convenience. Today, 27% of the population in US & Canada live alone. In larger centers like Manhattan, San Francisco & Toronto, 40+% live alone. Singles account for $2 Trillion in consumer spending.

Let’s look at a few of the driving factors in that shift:

      1970 Today
  % of Family Households   81% 66%
      1-2 persons   20% 46%
  Couples w/children   40% 20%
  5+ person household   21% 10%
  Men Primary shopper   1% 33%

 

Here’s the kicker: 44% of all adult eating now happens alone.

Single serve has become the norm.
