According to the British Hospitality Association, the leading agenda-setter and members organisation for the hospitality and tourism industry, the food and service management (FSM) sector has doubled its turnover since 1993 – the market is now currently estimated to be worth more than £4.25bn in turnover.
The British Hospitality Association has praised the fact that some two fifths (44%) of its FMS member companies are led by women, of which almost nine in ten (89%) have at least one women on their board.
Additionally the hospitality industry has a track record for employing a high percentage of young people. In 2013 two fifths (41%) of those hired were aged thirty and under.
