UK Foodservice Industry Sentiments Examined in New Canadean Report Published at MarketPublishers.com16 Feb 2012 • by Natalie Aster
LONDON – In total, 30% of respondents from food service companies have seen some increase in customer footfall over the previous half year, whereas 35% expect to see an increase in footfall over the next half year. A total of 65% of respondents from the profit sector consider seasonal updating of menu and drink options to be the key driver for customer demand. A total of 51% of respondents expect their companies to increase their marketing expenditure over the next 12 months.
‘Locally grown produce’, ‘fresh food’, ‘vegetarian offerings’ and ‘meals prepared from scratch’ are the prominent trends identified by respondents from profit and cost sector channels. A growing awareness of healthy eating habits among customers has led to an increase in a demand for fresh food. This has supported the demand for ‘local produce’, which UK foodservice operators consider one of the best ways to provide fresh food to their customers.
