Payment and delivery apps will transform the future of foodservice

The market still faces many bottlenecks that hamper growth and monitoring consumer behavior has been fundamental for companies to remain competitive.

The economic, technological and consumer trends dynamics are those that change very quickly and dictate the future in all sectors of the market. Foodservice is no different. Therefore, the movement of companies that reinvent themselves is growing and brings new solutions in products and services, which are in line with the social and cultural developments in the areas they operate. Important brands in the foodservice market will be showing their novelties in the second edition of ANUFOOD Brazil – International Trade Show Exclusively for the Food and Beverage Sector. The event takes place from 9th and 11th March at São Paulo Expo.

The sector has 160 million consumers per month in Brazil, according to the Foodservice Institute in Brazil, and yet the challenges remain with other sectors of the economy in Brazil: when there is an economic crisis and the consumer’s purchasing power is reduced the first item to being passed over is leisure. And it affects the foodservice sector a lot. Abrasel – Bars and Restaurants Brazilian Association – will discuss the matter during II Abrasel Meeting – ESBRE: Knowledge for Bars and Restaurants, which will take place alongside Anufood. “The sector has faced this crisis with brilliantly, fighting, innovating, minimizing costs and investing in aggressive marketing. It is necessary to discuss on the subject with those who are working directly in the area”, explains Percival Maricato, president of Abrasel.

One of the main issues that will be addressed at the meeting is changes in the ways of consuming. “The current scenario shows a fantastic development in delivery and payment applications. It is necessary to keep tracks of developments and move forwards to innovation to face the fierce competition that is typical in the segment. Entrepreneurs have to improve each day, reducing costs, increasing sales, seek for continuous-qualification”, Maricato says.

ANUFOOD Brazil provides the perfect scenario for discussing the future of the segment, as well as a meeting point for qualified professionals gathered by Abrasel. “We contribute towards facing any and all barriers that they try to impose on the sector, therefore a highly specialized fair like ANUFOOD fits like a glove to face these challenges since it is very focused on products, services, content and relationship, which are fundamental pieces to achieve our goals“, he concludes.

The II Abrasel Meeting – ESBRE: Knowledge for Bars and Restaurants takes place on from 9th to 11th March, which takes place alongside with other activities of ANUFOOD Brazil. See the complete program at
