Contract Catering - UK - December 2015
“Contract caterers are displaying varied performances dependent on individual market conditions. Many are, however, looking to make further internal cost savings to help buoy profits and improve competitiveness to gain further contracts. In this environment, companies can benefit from differentiating their food offer with brands and menus inspired by retail food trends. Smaller caterers, which account for a large proportion of the industry, can also benefit from a partnership approach - sharing resources, expertise, and contract delivery”
– Ambreen Ahmad, Research Analyst
This report examines the following areas:
- Moving forward, caterers with distinctive food brands can achieve wider meal demand that is less reliant on low cost value offers.
- Menus reflect changing food trends to compete with the high street
- Resource-sharing partnerships can offer opportunities for smaller providers
