Cost pressures hit growth for contract caterers despite bounce back

CGA said that offices and other venues served by caterers remain well short of pre-pandemic usage, and the soaring costs facing all businesses and consumers are adding to the challenges

Sales in the contract catering sector remain well below pre-Covid levels as sales are 20% below the figure recorded in the first three months (Q1) of 2019, despite year-on-year increases.

According to CGA’s Contract Catering Tracker, caterers now serve around 1,250 fewer units than they did three years ago, and the impact of high inflation on spending and costs are also restricting real-terms growth.
