Hot Topic: Food on the Go in the UK, 2018 - Market Drivers & Inhibitors, Strategies for Success, Consumer Insights and Retailer Profiles - ResearchAndMarkets.com

February 18, 2019

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 18, 2019--The “Hot Topic: Food on the Go in the UK - 2018” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

This report offers comprehensive insight into food on the go in the UK, analysing the market drivers and inhibitors, the major players, the main trends, and consumer attitudes.

25% of food on the go shoppers have a dietary requirement, with vegans, dairy-free shoppers and vegetarians the groups with the highest purchase penetrations. Shoppers with dietary requirements represent an important, growing portion of food on the go shoppers, with supermarkets expanding their free-from’ ranges in order to entice such shoppers.

Availability and lack of product development are key inhibitors of the food on the go market, as shoppers focus less on price in food on the go than in the rest of their grocery shop.

Food on the go shoppers are fickle - only 66.9% remain with their usual supermarket for food on the go purchases, with premium players Co-op, M&S and Waitrose the most likely to be switched to. Lunchtime convenience is the key driver for food on the go purchases; however, the market is saturated with cafes, restaurants and supermarkets all seeking to increase sales over the important 12-2′ lunchtime period.

Technology will play a key part in the development of food on the go (and all convenience) shopping, with multiple retailers increasing capital expenditure on mobile apps that allow consumers to shop frictionlessly, spurred on by the launch of Amazon Go in the US. M&S and Co-op perform particularly well in food on the go, with the latter found to be the most convenient and of the highest quality. These retailers (and Tesco and Sainsbury’s) are well positioned in the food on the go market due to their convenience networks.
