Cautious consumers change eating habits during a tough 2011 for food industry
Consumers are now demanding red meat more often while swapping three courses for two; café chains are on the increase while independent cafés are falling; and retailers are now cooking from scratch more often to save on costs as 2011 again proved to be a difficult year for the foodservice industry.
