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.


Milan is in our view the best place to see how Italian food and coffee culture combines with a range of inspirational formats, both across well thought through concepts such as Coop's store of the future and inspirational concepts such as Eataly and Starbucks Roastery.
