BlueCart is a mobile procurement app on the market in which restaurants and bars are directly connected with their exclusive network of suppliers. Using data from BlueCart’s user community of 37,000 businesses, the report focuses on US market trends providing businesses valuable insights as to where the food sector could be migrating in terms of demand. As a procurement app, BlueCart has gathered a significant amount of purchasing data across the food and beverage industry over the last three years. The report identifies potential market trends, risks, and opportunities through analysis of this data.

The data in this report is comprised of purchasing data from BlueCart’s users with some analysis of larger trends in the industry, provided by industry leaders.
