Staying competitive in the food retail industry is no easy feat. In fact, retail and food service sales amounted to $6.2 trillion in 2020, with sales of food and beverage stores accounting for $865 billion. Despite some major global supply chain issues brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, food retail sales remained high, with many consumers shifting to online grocery shopping for greater convenience and safety.
Food retail is one of the most important expenditures, simply because people need to eat in order to live healthy lives. As such, consumers purchase food items every week, with the average shopper taking one and half trips to the grocery store per week. Regardless of the state of the economy or inflation rates, retail food has high demand elasticity and there will be a fairly consistent need for food products.
There are several considerations to make with regards to supplying and stocking retail food, mainly the changing nature of supply chains. If ingredients or resources in the supply chain become limited, it may be difficult to source the same retail food products. Our webinars will help ensure food and beverage brands have reliable measures in place to curb any possible hindrances in the supply chains.
