Future of Public Sector Catering Report 2023 Launch

Working in collaboration with Simon Stenning, founder of Future Foodservice, Public Sector Catering is launching a report that is the first of its kind to provide a comprehensive current state-of-the-market overview and a forecast of how public sector catering will develop over the next 3-5 years.

Featuring key economic forecasts and a detailed look at changing customer behaviour, trends and attitudes, the full report will provide subscribers with unique insights into what is shaping the future of the public sector catering industry.

Detailed market analysis will outline the volume forecasts and the challenges and legal and governmental developments affecting the sector and will include insights from key industry personnel, case studies and sector-leading examples. Taken together, this creates an invaluable resource tool for suppliers operating right across the sector.
