There’s further evidence of increased pressure on margins for the food and drinks sector with Steve Richards, chief executive of Casual Dining Group (CDG), recently referring to an ‘unprecedented’ increase in costs that is expected to impact margins in the sector by 25% by 2020.

At the Propel Finance and Investment Conference, Richards said that he believed the rises would result in British foodservice companies turning to automation and technology in a bid to work more cost effectively by reducing labour.
