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.

Finnish firm Digital Foodie has launched a new tablet based shopkeeper tools for running e-Commerce operations in a modern way.

The new tools are part of Foodie.fm, a fully personalised social shopping platform for groceries designed by Digital Foodie.

Foodie.fm Product Suite, which is introduced at LeWeb London this week, offers everything needed to run personalised online services for groceries.

The firm said its new tools help retailers to move away from printouts and spreadsheets, and improve the quality of operations.

Pickers can now access a dedicated view for orders from their iPads and also modify the order in real-time, if needed.

In addition, drivers can communicate both with the customers and the store staff directly through Foodie on their iPads.

Digital Foodie chief executive officer Kalle Koutajoki said retail industry is undergoing a major transformation and consumers demand transparency and personalisation like never before.

"The results we’ve achieved with S Group show that answering these needs clearly improves sales," Koutajoki added.

"We increased S Group’s online sales by 15% when transforming operations from traditional store to Foodie powered online store."

The core of Product Suite is the multichannel storefront built around Foodie’s recommendation engine.

For assisted buying, the suite includes consumer facing service modules for personalised and social recipe recommendations.

In addition, Foodie’s suite includes store based feedback and rating module that increases the transparency of retailer operations.

S Group Grocery Chain Management director Ilkka Alarotu said that in order to serve its customers in an optimal and most transparent way, the company also needs to utilise the latest technology.

"With Foodie’s technology and iPad based shopkeeper tools we can now react to changing customer needs much faster while improving the quality of our delivery operations," Alarotu added.

Foodie.fm, a multiplatform service, is currently available on the web, Facebook, iPad, iPhone, Android and Nokia platforms.
