Wednesday 7th November 2018: In advance of its annual foodservice seminar which takes place in the RDS today, Bord Bia released the findings of its 2018 Irish Foodservice Market Insights Report which shows that Ireland’s foodservice market* is set to grow by 6.1% this year to reach a value of €8.2billion. The report tracks trends in consumer behaviour when eating out of home and also highlights some of the challenges the industry faces in light of the significant growth in recent years. Findings from the report show that consumer demand for convenience and sustainable practises are disrupting the foodservice industry and that with more operators using food as a tool to compete, new channels such as forecourt food experiences continue to emerge.
