The projected increase in the number of women in the workforce from 3.9 million in 2006 to 4.2 million in 2011, was expected to add to the popularity of the out-of-home cooked food market and drive eating out sales by the dual-income group.

  • The Dutch government’s Green Product Purchasing has been emphasizing steps towards a sustainable society. Provision of nutritious quality of food specifically in the social sector including hospitals and care homes is one of the initiatives under the same.
