Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

The industry has performed relatively well over the past five years. The consumer preference for cheaper, on-the-go food has persisted despite the improving consumer backdrop of the past five years. Takeaway operators have also responded to higher levels of consumer expenditure by introducing higher quality food, often using organic produce. Operators in the industry have had to respond to consumer demand for low-fat, low-sugar and low-salt meal options. Some operators have responded to this trend by adding healthier options to their menus. Mobile and online technologies have had a considerable influence on the industry’s development and many operators now offer online ordering and delivery services.

Industry Report - Industry Investment Chapter
