Supermarket Perimeter - February 2021 - 27

ecommerce ordering applications where many shoppers have turned
during the pandemic.
To reach all customers, it's important for shoppers to have a variety
of options to choose from -not only in flavors but in portion sizes as
well. Retailers can meet this need by offering both individual and family
serving sizes.
When choosing the grab-and-go soup selection retailers should
consider which soups will most appeal to their customer base. It's
important to have several options for customers to choose from, but
too many choices can overwhelm the customer and lead to food waste.
Grocers should aim to have three to five grab-and-go flavors on hand.
That can include two to three traditional soups (e.g. chicken noodle,
broccoli cheddar, potato) and a rotation of unique flavors for shoppers
looking to try something new.
" The desire to try new cuisines-especially Hispanic and Asian-is
desirable from coast to coast, " Richard said. " Retailers should consider
what flavors are hot right now, as consumers of all ages are interested in
experimenting. "
