New Market Study, "Greece Food & Drink Report Q1 2015", Has Been Published

LogoWe believe that deflation has further to run in Greece and now expect a return to positive inflation to occur in 2016, from 2015 previously. This will be underpinned by weak domestic demand, a fractured credit transmission channel, relatively restrictive monetary policy (despite recent efforts by the European Central Bank to provide monetary stimulus) and the lingering strength of the euro. Moreover, we warn that prolonged deflation poses a risk to economic growth and debt sustainability.

Recent Study: 100% Home Delivery/Takeaway in Portugal

LogoStudents and young adults have in the past contributed to the growth in demand for home delivered pizzas. However, the negative effects of high unemployment rates (16% at the end of 2013), decreasing disposable income and low consumer confidence by young professional workers and students undermined value sales of 100% home delivery/takeaway, as these consumers perceive it to be an unnecessary expense. Two other major factors continued to challenge the landscape: Consumers tightening their purse strings during this time of economic uncertainty, and an increase in pricing within this category due to a VAT increase. In this unfavourable climate, consumers reduced their expenditure across all foodservice categories, including 100% home delivery/takeaway. Although it fared better in comparison to full-service restaurants or self-service cafeterias, the drop of value sales was inevitable. Frequent offers and value deals were key reasons for the relatively better performance.

"Self-Service Cafeterias in Greece" Published

LogoThe number of outlets increased for self-service cafeterias in 2013, as the leader Venetis AVEET continued to invest in the channel. Nevertheless, self-service cafeterias only has a marginal presence in overall consumer foodservice in Greece, accounting for a negligible share of value sales. Overall, self-service cafeterias has become popular mainly because of the leading player, which has been expanding its network and creating traffic for the whole channel.

"Bahrain Food & Drink Report Q1 2015" Now Available at Fast Market Research

LogoDespite some downside risks, we maintain our positive outlook on food consumption growth in Bahrain throughout the forecast period. We forecast food consumption growth in local currency terms falling only slightly from the 6.4% forecast for 2014, supported as it is by strong growth in the mass grocery retail sector. Real GDP growth of 3.4% in 2014 is expected to be exceeded in 2015 and 2016 with growth of above 4% forecast for both years. However, employment and wage growth have slowed in recent months and are yet to show signs of improvement.

New Market Research Report: Rtds/High-Strength Premixes in Spain

LogoMany of Spain's leading alcoholic drinks manufacturers are now focusing on RTDs as increasing numbers of Spanish consumers are moving towards easy-to-drink beverages which require little or no preparation and which do need supplementary ingredients to be purchased. Nevertheless, this trend applies mainly to off-trade sales, while sales through the on-trade channel are characterised more by cocktails prepared by bar staff using spirits, mixers and various other ingredients. Consequently, in terms of their on-trade strategies, the leading manufacturers of RTDs/high-strength premixes are focusing more on targeting small bars which do not have the facilities to prepare elaborate cocktails and for whom RTDs represent a practical and rapid alternative.

New Market Research Report: Turkey Agribusiness Report Q1 2015

LogoWe favour the sugar sector in Turkey because of the strong growth potential of the country's confectionery industry and our belief that large changes to the country's sugar production quotas are likely to occur in the coming years. We see upside potential in the livestock sector, as the government's supply of discounted credit has aided growth in recent years. We see some growth potential for the grain, dairy and rice sectors, though we believe the country's production growth in these segments will be hampered by high domestic production and input costs. Agricultural output will generally increase in 2015/16, primarily due to base effects which affected production in the 2014/15 season.

Recent Study: Beer in France

LogoIn 2013, new excise duties of around 160% higher than the previous year resulted in super-premiumisation of the category; instead of shifting part of their consumption onto potentially less expensive lagers, consumers have maintained, and even reinforced, their preference for premium beers, even if it meant drinking less. As per trade sources, the French market is highly atypical when compared to other countries, and buying behaviours confirm the exception that French consumers have a very...

"Fast Food in the Czech Republic" Published

LogoThe leading fast food operators continued to look for profitable locations to establish new outlets as the availability of such locations became scarce towards the end of the review period. McDonald?s CR introduced the concept of smaller outlets with more-limited menus and no seated area. The concept is less demanding on operating costs and is suitable for locations such as small shopping centres and transport stations. This type of outlet targets customers that will take products away for consumption at home, on a bus or train, or in the office. The first two smaller outlets with a limited range were opened in the shopping centres Harfa and Europark Sterboholy in Prague in November 2013. Subway aims to open new smaller outlets within service stations and forecourt retailers and in close proximity to hospitals and administrative buildings. The domestic chain Paneria introduced Paneria Expres outlets during 2013.

New Market Study, "Full-Service Restaurants in Italy", Has Been Published

LogoThe most important trend impacting full-service restaurants in 2013 was the number of closures of independent outlets. This was a continuation of the trend already seen in 2012, as many operators started to quit the business; no longer finding it profitable due to the ongoing crisis affecting Italy. The depressing economic situation, which more and more Italians were experiencing first-hand, led consumers to be very careful of their out-of-home and non-essential expenses. Although the number of closures was less dramatic if compared with 2012, 2013 still saw 3,170 fewer outlets overall across the nation, with most closures happening in city centres.
