Key Highlights

  • The projected decline in unemployment rate over the forecast period is expected to drive the sale of foodservices in the UK, especially in the profit sector.
  • The global financial crisis has also had a negative impact on disposable income, which led to the tightening of trading environments for foodservice operators during 2009.
  • The UK’s net debt rose from 37.9% of GDP in 2006 to 75.1% of GDP in 2011 and is expected to increase further to 76.5% in 2016. These rising debt levels come at the same time as a sovereign debt crisis in many EU nations and this combination is expected to have a damaging effect on UK consumer sentiment.
  • Increased level of internet penetration and the change in the consumer lifestyle towards convenient living have been major factors to drive the diners towards the computerized and online reservation system in the UK. Restaurateurs are now using data analytics processes in order to increase their margins.
  • Foodservice providers are actively using social media to market their products, a growing trend expected to accelerate in the forecast period with the increasing use of smartphones.
