Food Service in New Zealand Market Analysis

Over the next five years, the New Zealand foodservice market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.73 percent.

The market in New Zealand is witnessing enhanced demand for dining out, thereby placing demand on food service providers. The frequency of dining out has increased owing to the time-pressed schedules of consumers in the region. Also, consumers' eating habits are becoming more like those in the West because of the presence of international companies, especially in developed cities. This makes the market even more popular and helps it grow.

The consumption habits of consumers have been completely altered by the pandemic, and this trend has been taken up by New Zealand as well. The homebound scenario has been a prominent affair, and the operation of food services has been on an experimental basis. Although consumers had kept their taps on popular chains such as KFC, restaurants were mostly closed and were operational through online services. Because of the pandemic, people ate less outside of their homes in the first phase, which led to a rise in online food delivery.

In addition to this, the geographic expansion of the international players in the market is further supporting demand. So, all of the above factors are sure to keep market growth and demand going strong in the years to come.

Full-Service Restaurants Segment Fueling Market Growth

The pandemic impacted the Hotel, Restaurant, and Institutional (HRI) sector in New Zealand, which severely impacted the tourism and hospitality sectors, which were hit by the closed international borders. In the year 2022, tourism numbers will have significantly improved since the reopening of borders, making a positive impact on the restaurant market in New Zealand.

The full-service restaurant segment is highly dynamic and competitive in New Zealand, attributed to the presence of multiple local and international players. To increase localization, restaurants in the country are emphasizing sustainability and collaborating with locally sourced ingredients and market players.Therefore, leading market players are focusing on opportunities from rising consumer trends and expanding their offerings to cater to the altered demand among consumers.

Furthermore, a number of restaurants are introducing vegan, gluten-free, and raw food diets along with pure vegetarian fare in their product offerings to attract vegan consumers to them. Such full-service restaurants are increasingly accepting vegan food options and providing vegan options in addition to high-quality food.Such factors are fueling market demand for the full-service restaurant segment in the New Zealand foodservice market.
