Future in Foodservice - Seminar set for 2017


If you’re in Sydney, mark the date of 3 April 2017 on your calendar right now – because that’s when the inaugural Future in Foodservice seminar is set to be held!


The first in a planned series of regular annual events, the half-day event theme will be ‘Future in Foodservice’.



What Makes Australia's Foodservice Market Special?


“More than anywhere else, Australia embraces a vast number of cuisines and eating out options – but we identify all these as ours, rather than seeing them as offering foreign food,” points out FI Foresight Managing Director Sissel Rosengren.

In fact Australians’ propensity to eat out is second highest in the world – only Singapore is higher among developed foodservice markets. And independent restaurants, cafés and eateries still make up the bulk of our volume dining – in contrast to the UK orUS, where franchises and chains predominate across the café, QSR and middle range restaurant sectors.


Breakfast and Brunch Trending Bigger on the Café Market Menu


The growth we’re now seeing in the breakfast sector – in excess of a three per cent share of total dining out – is a sign of increased consumer confidence as we come out of many years of a highly volatile market.

“Breakfast is a good segment to track in terms of how the market is doing overall,” explains Sissel Rosengren. “When discretionary spending is tight, breakfast is typically the first meal segment to suffer.But right now cafés, as well as restaurants to a lesser degree, which wouldn’t have opened for breakfast in the past are doing so, because the trade is too good to pass up. Particularly in places like Perth, eating out for breakfast is becoming part of the cultural fabric.”
