Dec 28, 2018

Food Retail Industry Category Planning

Among multiple segments within the retail industry, the food retail industry has surfaced as the most powerful and fast-paced sector with several players venturing into this marketplace. Globally, food retail stores are witnessing considerable growth owing to altering customer preferences, a radical shift toward online shopping, and a rising global population. As shoppers have already begun gravitating towards food trends that will liven up their senses and bring something they’ve never experienced before, consumers are constantly on the lookout for experiences that reflect global trends.

Moreover, relentless pressure from online rivals and innovative specialty retailers along with sluggish economic growth rates have made it difficult for food retail stores to establish their global presence. Additionally, the ever-stiffening competition has eroded traditional food retail stores’ profit margins, prompting them to cast about for wellsprings of new growth and enhanced profitability. Thus, by leveraging a category planning strategy, food retail stores can manage the supply of products across the target segments and accordingly position their product offerings in the market.
