During 2019 Qatar's Food and Beverages (F&B) sector generated an estimated sale of QR 7.8 billion. Qatar 's restaurant sector was hit by the introduction of social distancing policy measures in March.
Since then, at-home consumption has shown a spike and out-of-home consumption is at a standstill.
Since 'enjoy a meal-in' has been suspended at all food outlets, the report said, importance is put on retailers delivering to improve sales.
The biggest supermarkets that had no prior notification of shipments are listed on Qatar's online distribution platforms to reach customers.
While restaurant dining may not even increase significantly during the recovery phase as consumers may be wary being in highly populated areas, the report said that there had been limited supply for takeaway in the last 2 months.
"We still always expect to achieve pre-pandemic rates during the process of recovery phase. The availability of at-home food consumption was observed throughout March and April 2020, as previously mentioned. It is also projected that this will continue in the medium to long term, with customers inclined to buy more on food, groceries, and freshly produced food items.
