In 2017, the foodservice industry, which includes restaurants, snack bars, bars, cafeterias, buffets, delivery services and takeaways, moved R$ 418 billion in Brazil according to data from Euromonitor International. This represents a real growth of 3% marked by the slow recovery of the economy, which compromises the segment since many consumers chose to cut costs. In addition, rising unemployment has resulted in a smaller number of consumers who benefit from meal allowances to eat out on weekdays, which has reduced the movement in buffet restaurants, for example.
On the other hand, delivery and takeaway orders, as well as the food apps, which are considered more accessible there are no extra expenses related to services such as car park, waiter service fees, tips and cover charge, have also benefited, according to Euromonitor International – partner institute of ANUFOOD Brazil that is an event that will be launched in São Paulo on 12th March 2019 and it is based on the German version of Anuga, which anticipates a recovery before 2022, when the foodservice industry is expected to move R$ 526 billion in Brazil.
This is a unique opportunity for the Agrifoods segments (fresh and natural products, raw materials); Fine Foods (olive oils, spices, pasta, sauces, condiments, seasonings and general provisions); Meat (beef, pork, sheep, goat and sausages); Chilled & Fresh Foods (fresh products for convenience and fish); Dairy (dairy products); Bread & Bakery (industrialised breads and cakes); Drinks & Hot Beverages (beverages in general); Sweets & Snacks (chocolate, candies and derivatives, confectionery, biscuits, crisps, snacks, ice cream and sandwiches); Food Service (food, beverages and technological inputs/ machinery across all out of home food channels, such as restaurants, snack bars, catering services and hotels) and Organics (organic and natural products of animal or vegetable origin and processed organic products) – all of them will be present at the fair and supply 100% of the retail food chain.
By comparison, the difference between 2017 and 2022 will be a balance of R$ 108 billion more in the Brazilians pocket to spend on food outside the home. Thus, those results show not only a stable increase rate but also increases the positive outlook for the industry considering the data collected since 2012 with total turnover of R$ 283.6 billion. In this way, ANUFOOD will open new expansion fronts for the growth of national and international food and beverage industry production and distribution chain in the country.
The event will also offer the opportunity for exhibitors and visitors to participate in strategic discussions through exhibitions, lectures, conferences, sharing of experiences, launches, consumption trends, food safety and best practices. Distributors, wholesalers, supermarkets, restaurants, bars, hotels, among other professionals working in the industry will be able to choose their suppliers and update their business plans based on what they observe at the fair’s launch.
