Buyers from the corporate sector are assigning importance to catering service which is now being perceived as a talent attraction/retention strategy. The shortage of organized catering services across some of the regions is creating ample demand for catering service providers from buyers from end-user sectors such as the hospitality and the healthcare industries. These factors are impacting the prospects of spend growth on a positive note in the global catering industry.

APAC is among those regions where some of the leading catering service providers from the developed nations are investing by promoting localized cuisines, customized services, and fusion food items without diluting the value of their core offerings. This is propelling spend momentum in the catering industry in this region. On the other hand, in the US, the catering industry is witnessing an eventual slowdown in growth owing to the rapid shift of the B&I sector to low-cost Asian countries such as India and China.

What are the strategies to adopt to optimize procurement spend in this industry?

Benchmarking service providers’ quotes against the industry’s price

It is necessary that buyers ensure that the pricing of catering services is aligned to the industry standards. They should ideally have a balanced procurement approach wherein equal importance should be given to service quality and cost-saving opportunities.

Engaging with IFM service providers

Strategic engagement with such service providers will allow buyers the opportunity for supply base consolidation and also to collaborate with the service providers in cost reduction initiatives as service areas are integrated. For instance, IFM service providers usually outsource their ad-hoc requirements efficiently to regional vendors at a lower rate. Buyers can leverage this to bargain for reduced billing rates.
