Publication date: 1 July 1990


The UK product market for bread is analysed. Some of the main trends visible in this market are discussed. The segmentation of the bread market is examined and illustrated, and some of the major constraints on suppliers to that market are considered. Some of the product market strategies used by UK bakery companies are described. The conclusion speculates on future scenarios based on suggested threats and opportunities deriving from the Single European Market, and the potential break up of RHM plc.
