Brian Young, director general of British Frozen Food Federation (BFFF), is calling on foodservice operators to take full advantage of frozen food, following a report that suggests there are grounds for an optimistic outlook for the foodservice and eating-out industry.
The Horizons Review of the Year 2012 shows the strength and resilience of the industry in today's economic climate, and states that the foodservice and eating out market is in good shape for 2013.
Commenting on the publication of the review, Young said: "In the foodservice sector, we are hoping that more operators will take advantage of frozen this year as they look to try to restore margins, improve the bottom line and attempt to combat the impact of a struggling economy."
"In terms of cost savings for foodservice operators, our own independent research shows that chain restaurants, managed pubs and cost-sector operators can save an average of 24% buying in ready-made meals, rather than making a duplicate recipe from scratch."
