As mentioned in our Christmas 2017 blog, street-food is enjoying its time in the limelight thanks to growing demand from the consumer for innovative, globally-influenced lunch and snack options.

The convenience food and drink category is dynamic and characterised by solutions that are easier to prepare, transport and consume. The growth in the market stems from the needs of consumers who have increasingly busy lifestyles. The flourishing market is forecast to be worth £21.7 billion by 2021, a significant leap from the £15.1 billion that was recorded in 2015, according to IGD Retail Analysis.

Half of the estimated 7 million tonnes of food we throw away from our homes each year is edible; that’s according to the Commons Select Committee for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (EFRA). EFRA has launched an inquiry into the impact of food waste, a move which LINPAC very much welcomes.
