Contract Catering - UK - January 2017
“Austerity measures have meant continued strong pressure on public sector bodies to cut spending. While this has led to some outsourcing in the contract catering sector, it has also led to intense price competition and even reductions in some existing contracts. This is particularly true in sectors that have felt the brunt of staffing cuts, such as defence. The private sector, meanwhile, has benefitted from ongoing economic development, which has seen the gradual return of confidence and security in recent years. This has been bolstered by similar improvements in consumer confidence, the frequency with which people eat out, and growth in average expenditure.”
