Overview of the Global Foodservice Market
According to the USDA, the food system, which includes foodservice and food retailing, supplied approximately US$1.24 tn worth of food in the U.S. in 2010, out of which approximately US$594 bn was supplied by foodservice facilities. The global foodservice market caters to schools, restaurants, colleges, cafeterias, and others. The growing consumption of snacks and meals at food service establishments shows a growing demand among consumers for different types of foods, having an entertainment value to eating out, and the convenience offered by these services. Furthermore, keeping with the health trend, the global foodservice market is now also offering more healthy choices for conscious consumers.
Currently, there are four types of foodservice systems – conventional, centralized, assembly service, and ready prepared. Conventional foodservice systems are the most common type of foodservice system. The foodservice market is increasingly finding application in colleges, schools, restaurants, and universities. Individuals studying in colleges, schools, or offices tend to have their daily meals in places such as a cafeteria, which follow the conventional foodservice system.
Public health service departments in the food sector ensure the quality of the food is in compliance with the recommended standards. A high cost is incurred to maintain the consistency and hygiene of food quality, along with the requirements such as the large labor force and food safety. These factors will challenge the global foodservice market to an extent.
Region-wise, the global foodservice market is divided into Europe, North America, Asia Pacific, and Rest of the World.
