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
Assess developments within this sector to help your business thrive in 2022 and beyond.

Peapod Digital Labs is a wholly owned subsidiary of Ahold Delhaize USA and will begin with the supermarket brands of Giant Food Stores and Martin’s, which are also owned by the same company and currently offer next-day delivery service.

Ahold Delhaize USA chief e-commerce officer JJ Fleeman said: “At Peapod Digital Labs, it is our mission to support each of Ahold Delhaize USA’s local brands in providing an industry leading omnichannel experience for their customers. This means being there for customers anytime, anywhere, within hours.

“Through our relationship with Deliv, we will assist the brands as they continue to conquer the last mile.”

“Through our relationship with Deliv, we will assist the brands as they continue to conquer the last mile, and rapidly scale same-day delivery to the benefit of millions of local brand shoppers by 2020. Deliv is an example of many partners we will work with to deliver this benefit to customers.”

Giant and Martin’s home delivery service Giant Direct is currently offering one-hour delivery windows to customers through a pilot launch in Willow Grove, Pennsylvania.

The platform will expand the pilot programme to additional Giant/Martin’s markets as well as other Ahold Delhaize US brands in the coming months to locations served by Peapod.

To use this service, customers need to place their orders through Peapod.com and select one-hour delivery window at checkout. The orders will be delivered through Deliv.
