Inflation steers
shoppers to cheaper
grocery options
Almost half of all
consumers are fighting
inflation by buying
groceries at stores with
lower prices, eating at
home more often and
buying more items
on sales, according to
new findings from Lake
Success, N.Y.-based The
Feedback Group, which
surveyed more than
1,200 shoppers.
Forty-six percent of
grocery shoppers are
purchasing more food
and groceries at stores
with lower prices, 46%
are eating more often
at home instead of
restaurants and 43%
are buying more items
on sale.
Other common
strategies include buying
more store brands
instead of national brands
(38%), purchasing more
bulk-pack items to lower
the price per serving/
unit (25%), buying fewer
last-minute or impulse
items (25%), substituting
similar, less expensive
foods (24%), and using a
store's weekly sales flyer
to plan their shopping list
(23%). Additionally, some
shoppers compare prices
6 - JULY 2022
at multiple stores before
buying an item (18%),
purchase food for home
that is less healthful but
also less expensive (15%)
and buy fewer organic
items and products to cut
costs (12%).
46% of
Americans
are eating
more often
at home
instead of
restaurants.
Shoppers were asked
what one item they
would like supermarkets
to lower the price on.
The category with
the largest number of
responses, meat, had
more than double the
number of responses
of the next highest
category, dairy items
(with milk mentioned
most). Produce had the
third highest number of
responses (about evenly
split between fruit and
vegetables).
Organic foods
growth slows
Organic food sales in the
United States increased
about 2% to $57.5 billion
in 2021, according
to the Organic Trade
Association's industry
survey released May 31.
Overall organic sales
were over $63 billion
thanks to a 2% increase.
Non-food sales jumped
7% to $6 billion.
The 2% increase
compared with a 12%
increase in 2020 when
consumers loaded
pantries during the
COVID-19 pandemic
Pantry-loading eased
in 2021, which had
a negative effect on
organic food sales in the
categories of packaged
and prepared foods,
frozen food, and canned
food. At $57.5 billion, US
organic food sales have
more than doubled from
$25 billion in 2011.
Sales of organic
packaged and prepared
foods declined about
5% in 2021 due to
consumers shifting away
from pantry-loading.
Canned soups, nut
butters and pasta sauces,
which saw the most
growth spikes in 2020,
experienced the largest
decreases in 2021. One
bright spot was organic
baby food with sales
increasing over 11% to
$1.2 billion.
Organic bread and
grain sales decreased
slightly, finishing at $6.2
billion in 2021. Sales of
frozen and fresh bread
increased 1.6%. Sales
declined in baking
ingredients, pastas, rice
and other dry grains.
The war in Ukraine and
other domestic and
supermarketperimeter.com
international issues
continue to constrain
supply chains, according
to the Organic Trade
Association.
Fruits and vegetables
accounted for 15% of the
total US organic product
market. Sales in 2021
increased 4.5% to $21
billion. Fresh produce
and dried beans, fruit and
vegetables drove growth.
Sales of frozen and
canned food declined
as consumers reduced
pantry-loading.
Organic meat sales
increased 2.5% to nearly
$2 billion in 2021 despite
supply chain constraints
and stricter rules for
raising organic poultry,
livestock and seafood.
Organic poultry sales
increased 4.7% to surpass
$1 billion.
Service provides
reusable grocery
bags in-store
A new service allows retail
shoppers to check out
reusable bags at in-store
kiosks and return them
for fresh ones during their
next shopping trip.
Jersey City, N.J.-based
GOATOTE, a winner
of the Beyond the Bag
Challenge, is piloting
its system in select CVS
Pharmacy and Target
stores across New Jersey,
advancing reusable bag
alternatives as the state
enacts a ban on single-use
plastic bags, according to
the company.
For the pilots,
GOATOTE is partnering
with 99Bridges for the
technology platform that
powers its reusable bag
system.
