Alfresco eating & entertaining has seen one of the biggest increase in UK grocery with an 21% YoY growth to a level in excess of £7.5 billion*, and this has been fueled even more by the home-centric, & staycation trends present throughout summer 2020. This growth looks set to continue with retailer analysts predicting that the market could be worth in excess of £8 billion in 2021, with 3-in-4 households now enjoying life alfresco.
