Securing the Future of Grocery


This research paper looks into the challenges and best practices for securing the future of grocery.

For the last 26 months, US grocery retailers have been riding the gravy train with retail sales growth of $266b. While sales growth had moderated as the pandemic went on, rising fuel prices and inflation are once again driving up sales in grocery and mass merchants. Early on in the pandemic companies experienced the equivalent of Christmas every day for 3 weeks. In fact, in certain categories consumers wiped out the entire 4 months of inventory on the continent in 2 weeks. The sales growth has come at a cost of tremendous stress to the companies’ personnel, their supply chains and cybersecurity processes.
