Brexit will disrupt Foodservice growth


Brexit disruption to the food services industry is likely to slow sales growth and complicate sourcing of ingredients, according to the annual Foodservice Market Insights report from Bord Bia, which sees a loss of British tourist trade and tougher UK supply chains as the top Brexit worries for food providers.
 Consumers will spend €8.55bn on out-of-home food and drink this year, 4.5pc higher than in 2018, the report found - but slower growth of 4.2pc annually is forecast for the coming three years.
 "The Irish food service industry has been growing at robust levels for several years, but warning signs are on the horizon," said Maureen Gahan, a food service specialist at Bord Bia."Industry operators, and food and drink suppliers alike should be examining options and alternative strategic plans in the event of a slowdown," she said.
 The report said operators and distributors must keep "actively working to identify alternatives to sourcing products from the UK". It said: "This may include focusing more on Irish goods, as well as evaluating continental Europe or even North America as a source for certain products."

Wetherspoon eyes Cork and Dublin

British pub group JD Wetherspoon is eyeing more openings in Cork and Dublin as it seeks to push the number of bars it owns in the Republic to around 30 in the coming years.
 The group sees the scope to open “at least one or two” more pubs in Cork, to add to the one it currently operates in the city centre.
 Earlier this week, Wetherspoon announced its 11th bar in the Republic, via the acquisition of the HQ bar and restaurant on Hanover Quay in Dublin’s south docklands.
 The group currently has seven pubs open here — four in suburban Dublin, one in Carlow town, and one each in Dublin and Cork City centres. It also has three in various stages of development in Dublin City, Waterford, and Galway.wetherspoon1119
