The Outcome

The customer analytics solutions offered by the experts at Quantzig enabled the food retail client to derive meaningful insights from vast customer datasets and make better-informed decisions on market expansion.

Overview of the Food Retail Industry

The food retail industry includes franchised restaurants and food chains which encompasses fast food outlets, eateries, retail outlets, grocery stores, and supermarkets. It also includes all businesses that sell food products to consumers. Key growth factors in the food retail industry include increasing health awareness among the global population, a rise in the consumer spending, and a surge in the price of agriculture.

However, over the past few years, the global food retail space has greatly benefitted from the rise in disposable incomes and the growth in the domestic economy. In addition, the growing demand for natural and organic products has helped in the industry’s growth. As a result, leading food retailers are now focusing on adapting to the changing consumer needs to enhance their market share. Capitalizing on the valuable insights obtained from customer datasets is another potential area where food retailers are increasingly focusing on driving business value.

Food Retail Industry Challenges

  • The growth of the wellness segment: Consumer preferences and attitudes are undergoing a major shift due to which the demand for the organic foods has increased considerably across industries. Also, factors such as increasing disposable incomes, changes in lifestyle, multi-cultural exposure, and a rise in the number of working women have significantly impacted the food retail industry.
  • Growing focus on private labels: With the rapid growth of competition in the retail industry, promotions and discounts are expected to play a crucial role in generating footfalls. Leading industry players, therefore, find it more beneficial to promote private labels and store brands to counter the impact of profitability. It is also essential for food retail industry players to innovate and adopt new business models to cater to the accelerating demand from various industrial segments.
