The introduction of relevant industry analysis and insight sessions at Arena events has been praised for adding value and genuine learning. The Arena Face2Face Interview & Lunch on Monday 22 September 2014 will definitely live up to this as YouGov takes an in-depth and beneficial look into the shape of the industry's diverse foodservice cost sector.
On the morning of the event, market research agency YouGov will share enlightening findings from its unique foodservice consumer insight reports that delve into the core catering sectors and the central themes of pricing, food quality, health concerns, meal times and meal types.
According to YouGov’s University catering report(1), that students view local pubs and cafes as providing the best value for money, with on-campus food outlets rated as poor value for money by a fifth of students surveyed and chain coffee bars also fairing badly?
And, as the children return to school, the Schools & Academies catering report(2) reveals that 22% of parents opt to provide a packed lunch because it is cheaper, while 24% of parents whose children eat school lunch cite convenience as the most important reason, with a further 39% saying this factor is also important.
As well as universities and schools and academies, the YouGov research will shine a light on catering for care homes, hospitals and prisons.
Join over 200 industry professionals to take an in-depth look into the shape of the industry’s diverse foodservice cost sector with YouGov, as well as experiencing the dynamic and unique Face2Face Interview that will see Sodexo UK & Ireland’s chief executive, Debbie White, open up to ITN’s Alastair Stewart OBE.
