Proven practice: Innovative products have helped operators to sustain recent growth

Over the past five years, the industry has come under pressure, as demand for traditional loaves has fallen in the face of trends towards healthier lifestyles among consumers. However, innovation has been driving the industry, with many operators launching a range of healthier products. Industry revenue is expected to grow at a compound annual rate of 2.1% over the five years through 2018-19 and to increase by 2.2% in the current year, reaching £8.3 billion.UK bakers have been proactive in addressing consumer demand for healthier products in order to retain the interest of consumers, by extending their product lines. Kingsmill’s 50/50 and Super Seeded loaves have been notably successful in this more.
