The food market is huge, the number of take-aways has dramatically increased and we eat more fast and convenient foods than we ever have. This has led to an obesity crisis in the UK most notably amongst Children and the government are calling on more responsible fast food outlets to be more mindful and this is leading the way for healthier choices to be made when it comes to fast food.
There is also increasing awareness concerning ethical issues and these are being driven by an increased knowledge of the effects of waste and plastics on the environment. We are not only seeking out restaurants that are environmentally friendly but those that follow sustainable practices too. This is leading to alternative business opportunities for anyone interested in the food market.
Restaurants and food outlets that are open and honest about the source of their foods will do well in the current market and those that source and take advantage of local produce will encourage local farmers and growers to continue their practice. Customers like the idea of sourcing locally and using small food providers.
Many of our foods in the UK including Vegetables are imported and by using local foods grown in the UK we are encouraging productivity but also helping the environment. Restaurants and food outlets that can also grow some of their own food will do incredibly well and any business opportunity that incorporates all of these principles will do incredibly well over the next five years.
