message posted 09-Jun-09 11:12:37
The UK contract catering market is worth almost 3.8b in annual turnover and from more than 17,000 outlets serves 1.54 billion meals a year and employees nearly 115,000 people.

Dominated by the big four of Compass, Sodexho, Aramark and Elior the sector has changed hugely from its cost-sector post-war roots and today embraces oil rigs, hospitals, schools, leisure centres, sports stadia and race tracks and Ministry of Defence sites.

Many of these contracts are now run on a commercial basis as many as 70% of the total outlets demanding the caterer make money.

While business and industry remains the largest slice of the pie by meals served and number of outlets, it is also the most mature market with limited growth potential.
