The 5-Pillar Strategy
With a robust business model, efficient supply chain, an extensive network of certified partners, and a countrywide presence, Jubilant Foodworks is well-positioned to capitalize on a wide array of growth opportunities in the food and beverages segment.
The Company is constantly working towards transforming processes and leveraging technology to enhance capabilities and simplify operations to stay ahead of the curve.
According to the National Restaurant Association of India (NRAI), the Indian foodservice industry is estimated to grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 9% to reach Rs 5.9 lakh crore by FY 2023.
On account of COVID in the foodservice industry, the trusted credible brands in the organized service sector are expected to gain market share while the unorganized sector shrinks.
As per the NRAI data, four out of every 10 restaurants will likely be permanently shuttered in the absence of a government bailout.
The trends in the foodservice industry are expected to veer towards online food ordering, increased share of delivery and takeaway mix, changed customer perceptions about product consumption and services, higher emphasis on hygiene and safety among businesses and customers alike, and an exponential rise in digitalization owing to greater focus on contactless and safer transactions.
Going forward, the entire business model needs to change and technology, hygiene, and safety would become the key elements. Restaurants will have to focus on their delivery capacities and add value with initiatives such as special takeout-only menus.
Further, contactless delivery will be the way to go. Seating capacity at restaurants is expected to fall to adhere to social distancing norms, which will reduce meal volumes.
Key favorable factors for Jubilant Foodworks:
India has the largest population under the age of 25 in the world.
The working-age population to rise by 135 million by FY 2022 as India hosts 20% of the world’s working-age population.

Major Risks and Mitigation
Supply Chain Disruption
To mitigate regional concentration, strategic tie-ups have been done with suppliers having a sustainable sourcing base outside the West region for the supply of milk products.
In the ensuing pandemic situation, single-source vendors have been identified and are monitored for their vulnerability while alternate vendors are being considered.
Business Disruption and Resetting of Business Model due to COVID-19
Steps have been and are being undertaken to build customer reassurance to generate delivery orders through Zero Contact Delivery and Domino’s Pizza points.
To encourage Zero Contact Takeaway orders, curbside and Zero Contact Delivery, and to ramp up dine-in at restaurants, initiatives include social distancing, Zero Contact Dine-in, dine-in ordering through the app, use of gloves, ramp-up of the digital payments method, etc.
Impact of COVID-19 on the Food Service Industry
Outlook for the Industry
Food consumption and eating habits are likely to be significantly impacted as a result of concerns related to hygiene, personal safety, and social distancing.
In the short term, the organized sector will grow faster and the unorganized sector will progressively lose its scale and scope. Within the organized sector, trusted credible brands will grow faster and gain greater market share.
Going forward, technology, hygiene, and safety would be the top drivers of change and well-known brands would have a better chance of emerging stronger out of the crisis.
