In our view the best market in which to see food-to-go specialist format development, this is just the start of the innovation culture. In perhaps the most global megacity, our groups take inspiration not just from food-to-go but also from retail, food halls and restaurants.


Irish retailers are best-in-class when it comes to the development of food-to-go in retail. The standards continue to rise, with a strong desire across the board from retailers to win in the expanding food-to-go space. Dublin  provides excellent inspiration for anyone looking to strengthen their food-to-go element in retail.



Impressive and differentiated food fusion formats, cutting across retail and foodservice missions, have emerged from a culture of innovation that makes Amsterdam an impactful case study market. But as well as fusion formats, it's also a great location to see excellent food retailing, where aesthetics and efficiency combine to great effect.


Copenhagen is underpinned by a fantastic food culture, and a focus on innovation across formats, particularly in the food-to-go and restaurant space. It's also home to some of the best convenience concepts in Europe, while the development of food-for-now and food-for-later ranges also impresses. Trends happen early in Copenhagen, making it a great destination for forward thinking food & drink businesses.
