Supermarket Perimeter - April 2019 - 6

WIRE
Supermarket
openings up
30% in 2018
U.S. supermarket expansion increased by
29.4% in 2018, according to JLL's Grocery
Tracker 2019 report.
JLL, based in
Chicago, says in its
report that retailers also
opened about 17 million
square feet of new
space in 2018.
"Grocery is one of the
strongest retail sectors,
with nearly twice
as many new stores
opening than closing
last year," says James
Cook, JLL's director of
retail research. "The
grocery sector has seen
shopper habits shift to
more frequent, shorter
trips, versus large weekly hauls. As a result,
grocers are focusing on

6 - APRIL 2019

developing smaller-format stores, those under
10,000 square feet, with
more local offerings to
appeal to the surrounding community."
Florida added the
most supermarket
space in 2018, accounting for 9.7% of the total,
thanks in large part to
an aggressive approach from Lakeland,
Florida-based Publix.
California and Texas
each accounted for 7.8%
of the yearly total. Aldi,
Smart & Final Stores and
Sprouts Farmers market
spurred California
growth, while H-E-B
and Kroger pushed
Texas growth.
Aldi opened 82 stores
last year, according to
the report, accounting
for 15% of new stores by
square footage, while

NPD: Millions of
consumers ready
to try meal kits
While meal kits are
shifting from online
subscription models to
retail offerings, there is
a large group of consumers who have yet
to try them. The NPD
Group, Port Washington, New York, in its
"What's Next for Meal
Kits" report, says that
93 million consumers
have never tried a meal
kit but are interested in
giving them a shot.
"There is an untapped market for
meal kits and it's up
to meal kit providers
and retailers to find out
what it will take to get a
potential meal kit user
to become one," says
Darren Siefer, NPD food
industry analyst. "The
subscription model is
likely to remain relevant,
but it's important to
remember consumers
are looking for meal
solutions both online
and in stores."
NPD group says meal
kit users are likely to
be millennials, have
households with kids
and higher incomes.
Online and instore meal
kits appeal to similar
demographic groups,
although instore kits
tend to skew to households with children less
than 13 years old and
higher income levels.

Breakfast driving
global growth
Fast-paced life, eating
on the go, new offers,
"all-day breakfast," and
affordable prices for
breakfast combos are
all factors that contribute to out-of-home
(OOH) breakfast as an
important opportunity
for retail foodservice
operators and bakery
manufacturers. OOH
breakfast habits vary
widely in 13 global
foodservice markets,
according to new
research from The NPD
Group, released at Sirha
2019 in Lyon, France.
OOH breakfast visits
grew in 9 out of 13

BREAKFAST
FAVORITES

United States
breakfast
sandwiches /
muffins
China

or donut
Brazil
toasted
French bread
countries tracked last
year, even as total foodservice orders were flat
or overall less dynamic.
OOH breakfast visits
grew a whopping 8%
in France in the year
ending September
2018, compared to
the previous year. And
they're growing in

Europe, Russia, Canada,
Australia, and the
United States.
Breakfast sandwiches/muffins was the No.
1 item ordered for OOH
breakfast, with a few exceptions. Brazilians like
to order toasted French
bread for breakfast,
while the French are
partial to croissants.

Consumer
perceptions of
'clean' are changing
The perception of clean
remains a powerful force in food and
beverage product
development.
During the Wheat
Quality Council's
annual meeting in
Kansas City, Hayden
Wands, vice-president
of global procurement,
commodities for Grupo
Bimbo S.A.B. de C.V.,
Dallas, told attendees
consumer desire for
clean labels is altering
the way commercial
bakers are baking bread.
This interest has created a need for improved
wheat functionality.
Research released
by the market research
company Packaged
Facts, Rockville,
Maryland, identifies the
Gen Z demographic as
a driver of consumer
interest in the widening
definition of clean label.
Gen Z-ers are more
likely to look for organic
or natural foods when
they go food shopping
and to prefer foods
without artificial additives. They're also more
likely to be vegetarians.

PUBLIX

the

Lidl opened just 15 new
locations. Sprouts was
also aggressive, opening 30 stores with 30
more planned for 2019.
