There has been a higher demand for on-the-go food and drink in the workplace. This includes breakfast items, coffee and more! Read on to find out why there is a higher demand, what the most popular ‘on-the-go’ products are and why businesses are starting to jump on the trend.
What’s so great about on-the-go products?
On-the-go products are generally portable, making them easy to consume wherever and whenever. This makes them ideal for employees that rarely get a moment to themselves, or those who don’t get a particularly long break time. They can often be consumed straight out of the packet and the packaging is often easily disposed of at the end.
The demand within this sector has grown drastically. In 2016, the industry was estimated to be worth £16.1 billion, and by 2021 this is forecast to grow to £21.7 billion. This clearly shows more and more people are seeing the value of ‘on-the-go’ items, and the convenience of having a tasty and sometimes healthy snack when required. Moreover, these products are often easily accessible.
