With consumers becoming accustomed to lower prices during the recession, there is concern in the brand name sector that price hikes will cede market share to less expensive store brands, especially now that the lack of a quality discrepancy is clearer in consumers' minds. This balancing act has resulted in the packaged goods index struggling to keep up with the broader S&P 500.

After generally ineffectual promotional activity during the recession, food makers are expected to look in other directions to help grow their revenues. Campbell Soup Co. for example is hoping to expand into the emerging market of China where soup penetration has been historically difficult. Campbell's recently entered a joint venture with Swire Pacific Ltd. in Hong Kong to maintain its distribution partnership. There is hope that changing consumer habits will create more demand for ready-made products.

Another company has recognized the growing market for healthier products, especially with the movement to change up the sector's nutritional labeling.
