United Kingdom: Food Service - Hotel Restaurant Institutional

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   UK2022-0031

The hospitality industry was one of the hardest hit sectors during the pandemic but bounced back to pre-COVID levels since the full reopening of the sector in March 2022. However, the industry now faces an even bigger challenge with the cost-of-living crisis affecting the UK. Supply shortages, delays to deliveries, and staff shortages are having a significant impact on everyday business operations. Health, sustainability, and innovation are the biggest trends within the sector, with vegetarian, and vegan dishes remaining popular.
