Netherlands: Food Service - Hotel Restaurant Institutional

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   NL2023-0007

Hotel, restaurant, and institutional (HRI) foodservice industry sales in the Netherlands rebounded in 2022, valued at $15.6 billion, and exceeded the pre-pandemic (COVID-19) levels. In 2022, sales in all segments saw an increase but the limited-service restaurants and cafés and specialist coffee outlets sales grew the most, profiting from the scaling down trend among consumers. HRI foodservice sales via home delivery exploded during the pandemic and continue to stay strong as consumers are looking for affordable convenience and are leading more home-centered lifestyles. The HRI foodservice industry is also facing challenges, including a tight labor market, rising prices of inputs, and competition from food retail stores which are now offering more prepared options and grab-and-go meals at their stores. Foodservice sales are expected to continue to grow in 2023 albeit at a slower pace.
