Catering Service Procurement Intelligence

The catering service category is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.8% from 2023 to 2030. The rise of the catering sector is mostly driven by the rising popularity of online catering. New habits are becoming ingrained and the taste for foreign meals is rising as the urban population grows. The worldwide fast-food sector is expanding as a result of a variety of reasons, including changing food preferences, the rise of online ordering and delivery, and an increase in the number of nuclear families. Consumers all around the world are experimenting with various cuisines as a result of exposure to other cultures and lifestyles, which is also opening up new growth potential for the global fast-food business.


Technologies such as food tracking & traceability and smart appliances are used by the companies. Ann Sather uses food tracking and traceability to ensure the safety and quality of their food and to track the food from the farm to the table, which can prevent foodborne illness. Aramark use smart appliances which helps them to save time and energy as those appliances can be programmed to cook food automatically, and they can also be monitored remotely.

Businesses typically use a fixed pricing structure for menu options. For the food and service, there is a set price per participant. This straightforward pricing approach provides clear explanations of the components and associated fixed rates which are unaffected by size, scope, or preferences. This price structure is often used by both independently owned catering companies and restaurants with catering departments. This pricing strategy attracts clients as it is straightforward and sincere. Food and beverage costs make up the bulk of this category's costs since businesses must buy the ingredients needed to cook food, and the price of those ingredients varies based on the required quality and quantity. Raw material accounts for 40% of the total cost. A catering service's transportation costs may vary depending on a number of factors, including the distance to be traveled, the size of the event, the type of food being transported, and the time of day.


One of the biggest markets for this type of category is the U.S., where many companies provide services for weddings, business events, and other special occasions. Another significant competitor in this market is the United Kingdom, which has a long history of providing catering for upscale occasions like state banquets and royal weddings. With numerous Michelin-starred chefs, Germany and France are renowned for their excellent cuisine and catering services. This industry is also expanding in China, which is anticipated to have significant growth over the next few years due to shifting consumer preferences and rising income levels.
