Sustainability in the UK Foodservice Operators’ Industry 2012–2013 London, November 21st, 2012 – Canadean’s industry survey revealed that, on average, foodservice operators sustainability management budgets are expected to rise over the next 12 months by 7.2% in the profit sector, and by 5.8% in the cost sector. On average, sustainability management budgets of foodservice operators are expected to rise by 10.5% in restaurants, while the rise is expected to be 6.4% and 5.5% in the catering and accommodation and leisure channels respectively. On average, foodservice operators in education and other cost sector channels are expected to increase sustainability budgets by 6.4% and 5.1% respectively. Some of the reasons influencing the rise in sustainability budgets are the increasing need to adopt sustainability practices, train staff, adhere to government regulations, comply with sustainability certifications, and enacting cost saving techniques. Many foodservice operators are expected to increase budgets to meet guidelines set by the UK government and related agencies.
