t’s been a hell of a couple of years to be in hospo. Still, the latest extended lockdown in Auckland broke the bank for many hospitality operators unable to open at all. If pivoting was the name of the game in 2020, then survival was it for 2021. However, often innovation comes out of adversity, and Kiwi’s are better than most at reinventing themselves. What we’ve all learnt in 2021 is that experiences matter. Customers want something different that is worth getting out of their PJs for. Some outlets are already changing their offerings, restaurants and venues are listening to customers, and experience-led options are on-trend in 2022. The impact of the pandemic has had a lasting effect on digital uptake. Work from home has completely changed people’s eating habits; order-in, click and collect and meal delivery kits have taken off during lockdowns. This habit looks set to remain long after COVID-19 has left us. Lockdowns accelerated the digital uptake, and consumers are ordering, paying and even socialising digitally. Zoom meets have included wine tastings, cooking classes and more. So what will the restaurant of 2022 look like? Personal service, ambience and food served hot and on real plates – what more could a diner ask for? Well, it had better have great staff because that personal connection is something customers can’t get online and will be looking for. The growth in interest in dining locally, feeling part of the community, even if socially distanced, looks

IT’S ALL ABOUT THE EXPERIENCE

to set the benchmark in dining out next year. Technology will continue to impact, but a premium venue is unlikely to ask customers to order via a device. More casual and takeaway outlets will ramp up their tech to improve service, but that human connection will remain vital to building and maintaining a solid client base. Handwritten thankyou notes have been the stand out in 2021, with food to go and delivery often having the personal touch of a note to say “thanks for ordering from…”. Over the past year, ongoing travel restrictions have driven customers to travel with their tastebuds and try new cuisines. The flavours less travelled will be cuisines from further afield, along with flavours like hibiscus, ube and yuzu. At the same time, trends arising from the pandemic such as “drysolation” and “reducetarians” will bring some well needed new buzz words from which to innovate.

Health and convenience will continue to trend in 2022. Customers are looking to improve their health across all foodservice options. From dinein, takeaway, click & collect and of course, the growing segment of meal kits either cooked or just prepped. Most importantly, don’t forget to WOW your customers. They want to get out and meet friends; dining out has never been more of a treat than now.

GLOBAL TRENDS

The Future of Foodservice: Top Restaurant and Café Trends to Watch in 2022

Around the world, the changes that those in the foodservice industry have had to make to stay in business have shaped key trends going forward. As we emerge from the many challenges and uncertainties caused by the global pandemic, these trends will impact how restaurants, bars and cafes do business in 2022 and beyond. DINING TO GO EVEN MORE DIGITAL The pandemic prompted the revolution to digital and delivery. There is no question that it is a trend that is here to stay. This means online ordering, delivery and curbside pickup must be factored into all parts of the restaurant business. Even indoor dining restaurants will likely remain more digital, with some opting to keep online menus and table-ordering options, where meals are delivered to the table by runners. Digital is now part of the basic equation for today’s restaurant business and must be considered in current and future decisions.

VARIETY IS THE SPICE OF LIFE – CONSUMERS CRAVE NEW TASTES In part driven by the pandemic, consumers have been seeking variety and new types of food choices like global cuisines, healthy meals, and unusual ingredients. The trend has increased thanks to social media. TikTok, for example, has been a huge influence, exposing people to new food ideas and spreading diversity. In fact, a recent viral craze featured “onigiri,” Japanese rice balls. New ideas and trends travel faster around the

4

I R&C Buyer’s Guide 2022

globe now, and food is no exception. By adding virtual restaurant brands, a restaurant can quickly introduce new cuisines with a lower investment, and the restaurant’s partner handles menu development and marketing to drive demand.

SHIFTING LAYOUTS TO THE NEW ERA OF RESTAURANT DESIGN As off-premise dining remains popular, restaurant owners must rethink how the physical layout of their restaurants will work best for their business, staff and customers. Industry experts predict that what used to be a 70/30 split, with more front-of-the-house dining space and a limited back-of-the-house kitchen area, will flip to 30/70, with more back-of-the-house space, by 2025. This flip will accommodate the changing restaurant business.

CHANGES TO THE TYPICAL 9-5 OPEN NEW APPROACHES TO CATERING The shift from in-office work to a hybrid home-office split, as well as lingering concerns regarding the pandemic, have caused companies to rethink how they want to use catering in the workplace. This has also prompted restaurants to get creative about how to build back a healthy catering business.

THE GREAT BREAKFAST BOOM AND EGGCELLENT EGGS The crisis may have prompted some chains to cut back on breakfast over the past year, but the daypart is poised for a big bounce back in

2022. With recovery scenarios on the horizon, consumers are settling into a less-disruptive reality. For many, sourcing a morning meal from a restaurant is once again a part of the routine. Eggs are the restaurant darling of 2022. Egg sandwiches are having a moment in many parts of the world and will soon dethrone the chicken sandwich as the next must-have-on-my-menu restaurant item.

THE RISE OF THE COOKING ROBOTS While not hugely prevalent in New Zealand just yet, the number one foodservice trend prediction for 2022 across the United States and Europe is the surge of robots and automation in the dining industry. While the concept isn’t new, the notable acceleration results from labor shortages due to workers becoming fed up with working conditions, continuously inadequate wages, and contactless dining as a social distancing measure. At Miso Robotics, a robot named Flippy oversees flipping burgers and making fries at 11 White Castle locations. M

KIWI WINE HAS WINGS: NZ WINE IN HIGH DEMAND AT HOME AND OVERSEAS

THE LASTING IMPACT OF LOCKDOWNS By Marisa Bisois

International demand for New Zealand wine shows no sign of slowing, with export value reaching $599 million in the first quarter of the new export year, up 9 percent on the previous year. “The ongoing demand for New Zealand wine has proven that the distinctive flavours, quality and sustainability of our wines increasingly resonate with consumers around the world. It is encouraging to see that during these uncertain times, consumers continue to choose a premium product they know that they can trust,” noted Philip Gregan, CEO of New Zealand Winegrowers.

The latest Restaurant Association Hospitality Report finds that nationwide sales for the hospitality industry have declined sharply after more than 20 years of continued growth. “Until the pandemic hit, the hospitality industry contributed $12 billion to the economy, making it one of New Zealand’s largest industries. Despite being an enduring powerhouse of the New Zealand economy, policy made for the sector, for hospitality, is fragmented, impractical and often devoid of the everyday realities of operations. “In order to rebuild the industry, we need a joined-up strategy to ensure a well-rounded, productive sector that is a vital contributor to social well-being, nationwide tourism and the growth of the wider New Zealand economy.”

THERE’S A LOT IN THAT CUP

NEW ZEALAND SPIRITS COME OF AGE

By NZ Winegrowers

By the New Zealand Specialty Coffee Association

Are Kiwis paying too much for a cup of coffee? No, they’re probably not paying enough. When you take the time to consider what goes into the daily brew, you soon realise there’s a lot in that cup. As an association built on coffee, we are often asked why different coffees are more expensive than others. We also get asked how much we should be paying for that cup of coffee. Legalities rightly keep us from “setting the price” or indeed setting the recipe for a flat white. What we can do is explain to consumers what they are paying for in that cup, and why they could or should potentially be paying more.

The cheerio with tomato sauce has evolved into porcini with crème fraiche, Gordon’s gin into New Zealand’s own double gold medal crafted botanical spirit. We are demanding premium local spirits, and our industry is delivering. The popularity of spirits in New Zealand has been steadily increasing – the sales volume of spirits has risen each year for the last five years, driven mainly by gin.

What music is right for you? Getting the music right in your restaurant is as important as your lighting and décor. Music is a surprisingly powerful tool and affects your customers on a subconscious level. It becomes a key ingredient in distinguishing your brand experience and sets you apart from your competitors. But what music should you play? Loud, soft, up-tempo, slow, smooth jazz or pop music? OneMusic has created a simple checklist, backed up with stats from across the globe, to help you get your customers spending more thanks to your music choices.

Checklist for music in your business: 1. Define your brand’s sound 3. Turn it up (or down) Ask yourself what associations you want your customers to get from the music. What emotions do you want them to feel? Have they travelled to the destination your business is inspired by? |8 out of 10 customers buy French wine when French music is played1 |76% of restaurants that play music matching their menu seem more authentic to their customers than those that don’t2 |Take a 4.3% dive in sales if the music seems out of whack with your venue’s image2

2. Define your listeners

Who is the music played for and why? Is it for your employees or customers or both? Are they wanting variety or something that satisfies their taste in music? |Perception is different for each musical style. Pop music is youthful, exciting, and fashionable. Lounge music is upmarket and more sophisticated. Jazz music feels peaceful and fresh3 |68% said atmosphere created by music would influence their repeat business or recommendation4 |Motivate your staff with up-tempo music. 140 bpm increases the productivity of doing repetitive tasks by 30.7%5

Find the perfect balance in your volume. Play music too loud and you might be blocking the conversations of your patrons. Use music to your advantage by camouflaging noisy areas or bringing ‘dead zones’ to life. |‘The wrong music’, as in noisy or irritating, makes 44% of customers leave a business and 38% won’t come back6 |87% of people say it’s very important that the music being played has the right volume6

4. Test and learn

Try the music and volume on your employees and customers regularly. Ask them what they think. Change up the music to suit your busy times and quiet times. |Customers wait up to 26% longer when music is played than when no music is played7 |Slow-music at dinner = 56 minutes to eat and leave versus Fast-music at dinner = 45 minutes to eat and leave8

5. Get a licence

Music in your busines is different to listening to music at home, and you need permission (a licence) to play it.

Many music creators around the world earn an income by giving organisations, like ours, the right to collect and pay their royalties when a business plays the music they make. |Music is ranked third most difficult to live without in people’s daily lives, behind Internet and Mobile Phones6 |Eight in 10 people agree that musicians should be compensated for the commercial use of their music, and 87% believe that musicians should be paid for their work just like anyone else9

Research shows that getting the music right can add to your bottom line, strengthen your brand, improve productivity, and increase the chances of customers recommending your business to a friend. Your favourite musicians play a part in your business success, play a part in theirs with a music licence from us. 0800 800 663 onemusicnz.com/hospitality info@onemusicnz.com

INDUSTRY CONTINUES TOPROVIDE

By Gemma Carroll, PNZ Communications & Engagement

2021 saw the NZ potato industry experience supply chain disruption, changing protocols for health and safety and a polarisation in the greater community of Aotearoa, of political and health ideologies. Through it all we have continued to deliver the best NZ potatoes and produce the best NZ potato products.

T

he bigger challenge for our industry is how to both adapt to the climate crisis and mitigate any threats from it, such as extreme weather events and changing climate. Potatoes will play a major role in helping sustainably feed Aotearoa and the world, using less resources and requiring less land. Nutritional value per hectare is key. The high yields per hectare of potatoes make spuds an impressive food staple. Potatoes are low in calories, high in fibre, a source of protein and loaded with vitamins like Vitamin C and potassium.

Potatoes score very well on environmental impact, producing less CO2, lower nitrate leaching and requiring less water to produce than legumes, wheat, or rice. Spuds also require less area to grow, and 5kg can be produced in 1m², about ¼ of the area for equivalent in rice and much less than needed to produce a kilogram of legumes. The Barilla Center’s (sic) double food pyramid depicts the nutritional value of food and its environmental impact, with potatoes appearing in the base layer of the nutrition pyramid denoting high nutritional value and in the tip of the environmental pyramid

denoting low impact. New Season potatoes are in store now. It is the happiest time of year for spud lovers and the busiest time of year for our growers, in Northland, Pukekohe, Manawatu and Canterbury. Not only do our growers provide the best food for New Zealand consumers, but we also farm in a sustainable way, and we have strategic targets of net zero emissions by 2035. We are a +$1-billion-dollar industry and we ensure our grower levies are used to continue to improve potato breeding, environmental management, sustainable practices and to encourage healthy consumer choices, including free online foodservice training. Potatoes are part of a healthy diet and can be enjoyed in a variety of ways, with recipes spanning cultures and loved through the generations. Check out our website for all thing’s potato, including great recipes www.potatoesnz.co.nz Go to the Chip Group website for free training and info www.thechipgroup.co.nz Follow us on FB, IG, Twitter, and LinkedIn.

When it comes to nuts, freshness is everything. Once cracked the clock is ticking on flavour, texture and nutritional value. Imported walnuts are cracked many months before they get to New Zealand, meaning that they are well past their prime by the time you use them. Walnuts New Zealand’s walnuts are grown right here in New Zealand, and cracked to order, meaning you get the freshest walnuts around. You can taste the difference – crisp, sweet and flavoursome. Simply delicious and so versatile. Walnuts New Zealand is a co-operative of around 50 passionate growers based in Canterbury, nurturing their orchards over decades and sharing expertise to bring customers the highest quality, freshest walnuts. The orchards limit spray usage, and all nuts are tested to be free of any spray residues. Plus, the trees are great for the environment – they live for hundreds of years absorbing carbon and releasing oxygen every day. As the “king of nuts”, walnuts are renowned for their high omega-3 healthy oils, as well as protein, fibre and minerals. The New Zealand

COOKTECH

After 30 Years of distributing and servicing AMANA and then Menumaster ovens, the Searchfield Food Service team is moving to a new dedicated company. Same great people, same great service. Microwave ovens cut energy costs by only using energy when cooking – eliminating the need for pre-cooking and holding. During the cooking process, existing water molecules within the food are activated to create steam and shorten cook times even more. Plus there’s no need for costly ventilation.

The next step up is the Xpress range (pictured). These have convection and forced air options that maintain crispness and freshness. The forced air (impinger) also allows us to brown and crisp while at the same time using microwaves to heat. Only the best for your kitchen.
