United Kingdom Food and Drink Report Q4 2012


Includes 3 FREE quarterly updates.
While the UK labour market has proven remarkably resilient during and after the 2008-2009 recession,
we expected consumer recovery in the UK to remain relatively weak in 2012. Unlike previous recessions
in which a strong rebound in consumer spending restored the economy to its previous growth trajectory,
the household sector is not up to the task this time around. Moreover, rising employment alongside a
stagnant economy is synonymous with falling productivity, which would in turn lower the UK's longer
term growth potential and threatening further development of grocery sales.

Key Company Trends
Heineken Strengthens Its Cider Portfolio: In June 2012, Heineken boosted its cider portfolio by
acquiring Belgian producer Stassen. The firm, already the biggest cider-producer in the UK, will be
looking to capitalise on growth there as well as in other European markets and North America.
Morrisons Linked with Costcutter Acquisition: The July 2012 news that UK retailer Morrisons has
selected the owner of convenience store operator Costcutter to manage operations at five of its
distribution centres is likely to fuel speculation that a more sizeable partnership between the two
businesses could be in the offing. Reports, which came after Morrisons launched its convenience store
concept, M-local, have also suggested that the two held preliminary acquisition talks.
Costa Coffee to Be Sold In Petrol Forecourts: In August 2012, UK-based coffee chain Costa secured a
deal with UK-based forecourt operator Motor Fuel Group (MFG) under which Costa will supply its
express self-serve coffee machines to MFG's 48-station network. MFG confirmed that, as part of its shop
refit strategy, some 27 of its stations will start offering Costa by end-2012.

Key Risks to Outlook
Domestic and External Risks: On the domestic front, the UK's coalition government has recently suffered
a number of embarrassing post-budget U-turns and could be losing the debate on austerity versus growth.
This has propelled the opposition Labour party back into the lead in the polls and has raised the hurdle for
