Eating out is growing faster than spending on packaged food

23 June 2017

Consumers’ eating patterns have undergone fundamental changes, shifting from traditional family meals to a more fragmented and flexible eating style, encompassing multiple small meals, often eaten on the go or alone. A Euromonitor report (October 2016) looks at how the way we eat has changed and what implications this has for the food we choose to eat. In June 2017 a whitepaper about the report was published.
Many consumers are moving away from a pattern of eating 3 fixed meals a day towards a much more flexible pattern of snacking and grazing and eating at any time that is convenient. Where consumers eat is also shifting; spending on eating out is growing faster than spending on packaged food.
