Market Definition

Foodservice is defined as the sale of food and drinks for immediate consumption either on the premises from which they were bought, or in designated eating areas shared with other foodservice operators, or in the case of takeaways transactions, freshly prepared food for immediate consumption. The definition excludes sales through vending machines and is restricted to sales in specific foodservice channels (please see channel definitions below). All industry values are given in Operator Buying Prices, that is the amount spent by foodservice operators on the food and drink that they serve and not the amount the consumers spend on food and drinks (Operator Selling Prices - OSPs) in these channels. The difference is the mark up the foodservice operator adds in order to cover their other costs and generate a profit. This therefore values the industry in terms of the amount of money for which food and drinks manufacturers are competing.
