State of Grocery 2023

Tighter economic conditions have persisted throughout 2023, affecting all parts of the grocery landscape. "Innovation" remains key to success for both retailers and brands — though it looks different from retailer to retailer, location to location, and brand to brand. Increased consumer demand for personalization, better-for-you products, transparency, and speed is not going anywhere. Coupled with increasing demand for value and affordability in an inflationary environment, these permanent changes pose a challenge for the industry, which has relied on external capital for change in recent years. Those players that can rise to the challenge will create a new era that can sustain the shift in demand for the long term.
