Reports & Presentations

France is increasingly being used as a stepping stone for international foodservice chains to enter Europe, as recently evidenced by Pret a Manger and Marks & Spencer.  However, the French market is still dominated by independents and local chains as consumers continue to look for convenient, on-the-go food options without compromising on freshness and quality. International players will need to adapt their strategies to consumer tastes and become more ‘local’ in order to succeed in this competitive market.

This report outlines five key trends shaping French consumer behaviour - convenience, self-service ordering, fresh and healthy, adapting to local tastes and local sourcing - with best practice examples from leading national and global companies such as McDonald’s, Quick and Monoprix.
