Slovakia: Food Service - Hotel Restaurant Institutional

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   LO2022-0001

This report gives an overview of the foodservice – hotel, restaurant, and institutional (HRI) sector in Slovakia and outlines current market trends, including best product prospects. As in other countries, Slovakia’s foodservice sector was one of the hardest hit by the Covid-19 pandemic. In 2020, Slovak foodservice sales were valued at $ 1.68 billion (EUR 1.49 billion). Despite being down by 35 percent compared to 2019, foodservice sales have slowly recovered as Covid case counts decrease. Pandemic-related social restrictions led to a change in consumer behavior and an increase in sales through takeout and delivery channels. Limited-service restaurants and specialist tea and coffee shops were the least affected foodservice sub-sector reporting relatively successful sales numbers despite the pandemic.
