What’s the forecast for the food and grocery industry?

The food and grocery sector thrived during the pandemic, largely due to the shutdown of the food service industry and the sector’s subsequent necessity, panic-induced bulk purchasing, and spending more time at home. The market has grown as a result of inflation. Consumer unwillingness to go out and socialize, and the reopening of several hospitality facilities, helped maintain the demand for groceries, particularly online, in 2021. As consumer behavior changes, we consume more food and drink at home, and inflation increases basket sizes. GlobalData predicts that the sector will continue to hold a higher share than had been predicted prior to the pandemic. This is true despite the fact that the food and grocery sector's share of overall retail will decline from its peak in 2020. This report will discuss market forecasts and key themes in the global food & grocery industry in 2022 and beyond. It covers:
  • Market drivers and inhibitors
  • Five-year forecasts and the impact of COVID-19
  • The performance of the online channel versus offline
  • Major trends in the market including rapid delivery, ambient retailing, supply chain disruption, and inflation

The grocery supply company will leverage the partnership to provide the online solution to more than 3,000 stores, enabling them to improve customer base and enhance revenues.

Rosie CEO Nick Nickitas said: "Offering e-commerce is crucial for independents to remain competitive, especially during a time when the industry is evolving quickly.

“The Rosie platform continues to grow and evolve, staying in tune with the ever-changing needs of online shoppers."

“We are excited to team up with C&S to establish winning digital strategies, develop innovative technology, implement omnichannel marketing programmes, and provide world-class support to help these grocers compete against corporate chains."

Rosie has already entered into partnerships with seven C&S retail customers, who have either deployed the solution or are in the process of doing so.

P&C Fresh Markets owner Greg Young said: "Rosie has given us the ability to have an online option with capabilities that our largest chain competitors do not have.

“The Rosie platform continues to grow and evolve, staying in tune with the ever-changing needs of online shoppers."

Established in 1918, C&S supplies to more than 14,000 independent supermarkets, chain stores, military bases, and institutions.
