How the British food market works

The rhythm of life and thus the eating habits of the British have changed in recent years. People tend to skip meals and consume snacks that are low in calories while out and about. Jane Milton, a food expert from the UK, explains: “Britain has a vibrant food culture. The market for ready meals, from soups to prepared vegetable meals, is large. At the same time, the country is often an early adopter of new kitchen trends and flavors.” In addition to “food on the go”, the British are increasingly paying attention to their health. It is in this area that Jane Milton also sees potential for Swiss exporters: “Great business opportunities can be created in the UK by bringing these two factors together and developing healthy products that can be consumed on the go.”
