The fast-growing food to go market is the focus of a major conference and study tour in London next week.

The MCA Food to Go Conference, taking place at the Ham Yard Hotel on 7 February, will hear from leading and fast-growing operators in the out-of-home market including Caffè Nero, SSP, Greggs, Itsu, Waitrose, Chopstix and HIM.

The event will also see the launch of MCA’s latest report into the food to go market, which the research firm is predicting will grow by 2.8% in 2018 to a value of £20.7bn, outpacing the 1.5% growth forecast for the eating out market as a whole.

The report includes market intelligence for operators and suppliers seeking to advance their position in the food-to-go market. It will detail consumer behaviour changes, product trends, market growth drivers/inhibitors and forecast for future changes.

The booking portal is closing soon, so please visit the event website in order to secure your place.
