The market for ready meal trays appears to be fragmented with the existence of a number of businesses, and competition is growing fiercely with all businesses concentrating on enhancing their market position. The increase in online food delivery applications and the increased use of bioplastics are factors that are poised to provide huge opportunities for competitors.
