Feeding London 2030

27 January 2017

A new study reviews issues and potential strategic solutions to the current and future challenges facing food and drink supply chains in London and other major population centres across the UK.

With an unprecedented rate of population growth in the UK’s cities, the report identifies a looming urban logistics crisis which, if not addressed now, could lead to a shortage of essential food supplies on the shelves of grocery retailers and at other food outlets.

Feeding London 2030 was commissioned by the United Kingdom Warehousing Association (UKWA) and delivered by research consultants Global 78.

Issues examined in Feeding London 2030 include:

  • The impact of the increasingly congested urban environment;
  • New consumer demand profiles for food and drink;
  • Current trends in delivery frequencies, times and volumes;
  • Changes in the grocery retail sector that impact on supply chains;
  • The significance of the hospitality and food service sector;
  • Maintenance of food hygiene and food safety through the supply chain;
  • The logistical pressures associated with food waste and other waste streams.

Peter Ward, UKWA’s chief executive officer, commented: “Feeding London 2030 examines the issues that the logistics community, grocery retailers, caterers, food and drink manufacturers and distributors, waste management companies, government agencies and industrial property agents must address as they strive to develop solutions to the city logistics challenges that lie ahead.  It provides essential intelligence for successful forward planning.”

Nigel Jenney, Chief Executive of FPC commented: “The importance of our wholesale markets to source efficiently and distribute locally food & flowers in major cities is sometimes taken for granted and has never been more critical. They must be recognised and promoted as a key solution to feeding our growing city communities.”    

Feeding London 2030 is available from UKWA priced at £790.00 for non-UKWA member companies and £395.00 for UKWA members. Email Sue Knief - or visit
