22 July 2022

From ongoing supply chain issues and sky-high inflation rates to staff shortages, retailers of all sizes and across all sectors are being tested and are likely to continue to face these (and probably more) challenges in 2022. However, it isn’t all doom and gloom.

While COVID-19 has exacerbated many pre-existing social and economic problems, it’s also forced most of us to reconsider our social behaviours, including regularly eating out at restaurants. As a result, significantly more people are eating their meals at home, with cooking, baking, and ordering becoming everyday occurrences.

This, therefore, presents a massive opportunity for grocery store owners to adapt, elevate, and innovate their offerings to meet rapidly changing customer needs and expectations. Speedy delivery services, improved ready-to-eat meals, personalised shopping experiences, and automated solutions are just a few of the key trends that will shape grocers this year and beyond.
