"K

food landscape is as varied as it's ever
been. Non-traditional retail channels have
entered the fray, ranging from mass merchandisers and club stores, to discounters
and dollar stores.
Channels that traditionally have not
been top-of-mind in terms of food
shopping now are, especially among
younger generations. Millennials and
Gen Z are just as comfortable shopping
convenience stores as they are traditional
supermarkets. And let's not forgot the
e-commerce channel, which continues
to grow in popularity among shoppers
looking for convenient ways to buy food.
And all the while changes were
happening in the retail food landscape,
so, too, were the shopping and eating
patterns of consumers. They are more
adventurous, looking to try new food
flavors, ethnically-flared cuisine, and new
takes on old favorites. This is especially
true of younger generations, many of
whom have grown up in multicultural
households or been exposed to food
concepts and varieties through friends,
colleagues, and social media.
The story behind the food now plays a
pivotal role in connecting with consumers. How was it raised or produced? What
journey did it take to eventually land in
the store? Can a shopper find this information quickly on packaging, labeling,
and in-store messaging?
Consumers actively seek out "local"
products and ingredients when shopping.
Local conveys freshness; purchasing local
products also supports the local economy, a product attribute that resonates
with many shoppers.
Experience is another driving factor,

nowledge is power."

This inspirational quote,
which by some estimates
has been around for thousands of years, is
as true today as when it was first spoken.
It's a universal quote, pertinent to so many
aspects of our personal and professional
lives, our businesses, and our endeavors.
In the business world, having a
knowledge of the shopping habits and
preferences of consumers can mean the
difference between success and failure.
In the retail food industry, it can mean
the difference between loyal shoppers
who view your stores as their primary
shopping destination, and those shoppers who look elsewhere because their
needs are not being met.
And these needs stretch beyond the
traditional food staples sought during
stock-up trips. Shoppers want to be
educated. They want ideas for entertaining with family and friends. They want
options for not just preparing meals at
home, but also convenient and delicious
prepared food choices. And perhaps
above all, they want an experience when
they walk though those front doors.

Today's consumers seek
knowledge and experiences
Some readers might remember a time
when the neighborhood supermarket or
grocer was the only game in town when
it came to buying food. Chances are, your
parents shopped there at least weekly,
and what they bought were ingredients
for preparing meals at home. Other food
shopping options just didn't exist.
Flash forward to today, where the retail
