2021 Irish Foodservice Industry White Paper Webinar
Following eight years of consecutive growth, the Irish foodservice market fell by 47% in 2020. Covid-19 related lockdowns and ‘stay at home’ mandates resulted in a €4bn drop in consumer spending and a market that was worth €4.5bn at the beginning of 2021*.
On Thursday, 17th June Bord Bia delivered a mid-year update on the size, scope and outlook for the 2021 Irish foodservice market. The webinar also addressed some of the key trends and drivers shaping the future of foodservice, with recommendations and sign posts for all industry players.
Pauline Cox (Managing Director) and Mark Anderson (Culinary Director) of Gather&Gather Ireland joined us live from Airfield Estate in Dublin to share their story on how the G&G business has transitioned since March 2020 and discussed some of their future plans as the foodservice sector finally reopens.
