Purchase Report

North American diet varies considerably with each state. The eating habits of the even the two major North American countries differ considerably from each other. In Canada eating habits in the Quebec region differ with the rest of the provinces. Smaller countries in the continent vary even more. So carriers have to stock up food according to their routes and the region they are operating in. But eating healthy is one common trend, which is linking all the regions in the continent and more particularly in the United States of America. The North America In-flight catering services market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.78% till 2023.

More than 25% of the Americans still consume fast food every day, but the percentage is dropping and the high obesity rate is a major factor for the same. Among the food items that have witnessed maximum levels of growth in their sales in the past 10 years, healthy food stands upfront. Yogurt, poultry, sandwiches, fresh fruit, Mexican food are some of the foods that has witnessed a spiked demand during in-flight catering.

North American commercial aviation market will continue to remain one of the biggest and most profitable in the world but its growth rate will lag behind regions like Asia Pacific, Latin America and Middle East & Africa due to high penetration of the aviation sector and saturated market. But the In-flight catering services will register impressive levels of growth in the market, as carriers aim to improve quality of food served on the planes. The increase in quality and cusines provided will be directly led by passenger demand to have healthier and better quality food on their flights.
