Conagra (CAG) Benefits From Foodservice Recovery & Online Sales

Nov 25, 2021

Conagra (CAG) is gaining from recovery in the foodservice channel, growth in online sales and efforts to boost portfolio. However, input cost inflation is a concern. This story originally appeared on Zacks From shifting demand conditions and growth in e-commerce to ups and downs in outdoor dining, food companies encountered numerous changes in the pandemic. Thanks to vaccinations, food consumption and buying habits are normalizing now that restrictions have eased. Renowned food company Conagra Brands, Inc. CAG is gaining from recovery in the foodservice channel as individuals are spending more time outdoors. It is also been riding on growth in online sales and prudent efforts to boost portfolio, including innovations and buyouts. Such upsides have kept the company afloat amid tough year-over-year comparisons, divestitures and inflationary trends for key product inputs. Let’s delve deeper. - Zacks Foodservice on Recovery Track Conagra is seeing recovery in the Foodservice business, as restaurant traffic is increasing with pandemic-led restrictions being lifted and higher outdoor movement. In first-quarter fiscal 2022, Foodservice segment sales moved up 20.9% year on year to $239.8 million, owing to a rise in organic sales. Notably, organic sales increased 21.7% and volumes were up 20.1%. Price/mix inched up 1.6%. The segment saw favorable comparisons with the last year’s drab Foodservice sales — caused by the initial pandemic impact. With a persistent rise in outdoor dining trends, the Foodservice business looks well placed. E-commerce Gains Sheen Consumers’ inclination toward online ordering reached a new high during the pandemic. This factor has propelled several food companies to strengthen online capabilities. Conagra’s e-commerce investments have been yielding favorable results. In first-quarter fiscal 2022, the company continued to register growth in the e-commerce business, amounting to nearly $1 billion. E-commerce sales represent about 9% of the company’s total retail sales. Pricing Gains & Efforts to Boost Product Offerings Conagra’s efficient pricing initiatives have been an upside. In the first quarter, price/mix improved 1.6% and aided organic sales growth. Favorable price/mix was mainly the result of positive net pricing and brand mix. The company’s prudent pricing actions will likely support the bottom line in the forthcoming periods. Speaking of boosting portfolio strength, Conagra’s acquisition of Pinnacle Foods helped it create a robust portfolio of leading, iconic and on-trend brands. The move is ramping up innovation and is facilitating the company to exploit the long-term benefits in the frozen foods space. Management has been boosting some of Pinnacle Foods’ business banners, especially the Gardein brand, which holds a solid position in the plant-based meat-alternatives food space. Cost synergies from Pinnacle Foods’ buyout have been supporting gross-margin performance. Conagra had stated that it expects to achieve $305 million worth of synergies (less pandemic-led costs) by the end of fiscal 2022. Conagra is committed toward undertaking innovation, which is the key to the company’s success. Despite the pandemic, the company continued to focus on innovations. Management highlighted that innovation across the portfolio was a success during first-quarter fiscal 2022. Prudent innovations have been helping the company to modernize the portfolio and meet consumers’ changing needs. Some of the company’s new products have been top-performing in most categories, including snacks, sweet treats, frozen vegetables and frozen meals. Wrapping Up Conagra’s sales volume is being affected by tough comparisons with the year-ago period’s initial spike in at-home food demand. Volumes in most of the company’s segments were hurt by tough comparisons with the year-ago period’s initial demand surge. The divestitures of the H.K. Anderson business, the Peter Pan peanut butter business and the Egg Beaters businesses affected the top line. Moreover, the company has been grappling with cost inflation. Although management is focused on pricing and saving efforts to combat inflation, the timing and gains from these initiatives are likely to be more skewed toward the second half of fiscal 2022. We expect the aforementioned upsides to continue driving Conagra and help it overcome the prevailing challenges. We expect the company to continue maintaining a strong footing in the food space.
