Hazel Detsiny, marketing foods vice president for household giant Unilever, said: “We’re seeing a fundamental shift in consumer demand.
“Brits are moving away from traditional sauces in favour of more exciting products, such as flavoured mayonnaise and hot chilli sauces.”
The Grocer added: “Every trend has its winners and losers. In this scenario, it’s traditional sauces that are losing out.
“Ketchup, brown sauce and salad cream have all either stagnated or lost value.”
