Future of Grocery and CPG Retailers

Recently we released a research paper and hosted a webinar on the topics of the future of grocery and CPG retailers.

The future of grocery and CPG retailers is being shaped by the transformative forces of technology, changing consumer preferences, and the aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic. Adapting to these shifts and embracing innovation will be crucial for retailers to thrive in this dynamic landscape.

Future Challenges and Opportunities

As the future of grocery and CPG retailers unfolds, there are both challenges and opportunities on the horizon. The industry must navigate evolving consumer expectations, fierce competition, and the need for continuous innovation. Embracing technology, fostering sustainability, and delivering personalized experiences will be essential for success.

Accelerated Adoption of Click-and-Collect

Click-and-collect has experienced a rapid surge in popularity. This model allows customers to order groceries online and collect them from designated pickup points. It offers convenience, time-saving benefits, and reduced exposure to crowded stores. Retailers have invested in optimizing their click-and-collect infrastructure to meet the growing demand.

Evolution of Local Delivery Options

Local delivery services have seen a significant expansion, enabling customers to receive groceries at their doorstep. Retailers have partnered with third-party delivery platforms or developed their own delivery fleets. This shift not only provides convenience to customers but also opens up new revenue streams for retailers.

Integration of Technology in Grocery Retailing

The future of grocery and CPG retailers lies in embracing technological advancements. Retailers are leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) algorithms to enhance supply chain management, demand forecasting, and inventory optimization. Additionally, the use of smart shelves, cashier-less checkout, and mobile payment solutions is becoming more prevalent.
