Turkey: Food Service - Hotel Restaurant Institutional

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   TU2022-0045

Turkey’s HRI sector, which continues to recover from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, is now grappling with rising inflation and economic uncertainty. Persistent inflation has eroded consumers’ buying power, causing them to switch to cheaper dining-out options, such as fast food and street stalls. On the bright side, the return of foreign tourists is contributing to higher HRI sales. Meantime, the restaurant home delivery trend continues to grow as consumers demand greater convenience.
