Grab the opportunity

Some data suggests that the convenience store sector is missing out on food-to-go growth. Yes, the food-to-go market in general is in growth but data from MCA Insight suggests that food-to-go sales in convenience will remain static for some time. But, helpfully, there is more data at hand to show why food-to-go in convenience is not always a hit with shoppers.

At the ready

Own-brand may be king in the overall ready meals market and chilled meals may generally outsell frozen ones, but there's one frozen food brand that's really bucking these trends and that's Kent-based Cook. Sales director Chris Portwood explains: "Cook overall has been in double-digit growth every year since we set the business up and, on average, our stores and concessions are delivering plus four per cent in like-for-like sales.

Moving on up

If you're of a certain age, you may remember your mum telling you that it was wrong to be seen eating out on the street. How times have changed! Eating on the move and buying food-to-go is commonplace and we're doing it more and more. Indeed IGD estimates that the food-to-go market will leap from the current £16.1bn to be worth £21.7bn by 2021. It adds that 'convenience, forecourts and other retailers' will see growth from £2.5bn in 2016 to £3.3bn in 2021.
