Executive Summary

Apr 2019
A good year overall despite challenges

Overall 2018 was another good year for consumer foodservice, driven largely by heated macroeconomic activity generally in Ireland. Ireland has been undergoing a mini boom in the last two years, which is set to continue at least midway through the forecast period.

VAT on hospitality and increased operational costs

Ireland lowered the VAT rate on all hospitality providers to 9% during the recession of 2008-2011. The move was taken to help the industry maintain competitiveness through low prices when the sector was struggling to compete internationally and domestically due to the constrained economic conditions.

Irish-owned brands continue to impress

Irish consumers are particularly loyal to indigenous brands and those international brands that have a significant physical presence in the country. This is a legacy of the government-led “Buy Irish” campaigns of the 1960s onwards.

Bars and full-service restaurants continue to grow in value sales

Thanks to the extremely complex nature of Irish commercial property and the extensive licensing laws, bars and full-service restaurants remain dominated by independent operators.

Positive outlook despite potential challenges

Ireland’s mini economic boom is expected to continue over the forecast period with employment set to increase and tourism inflows to beat expectations.
