Tesco closing some
meat, seafood and
deli counters
Global retail giant Tesco
is closing meat, seafood
and hot deli counters in
317 of its stores.
" In 2019, we
announced a
simplification of our
counters business, "
according to Tesco.
" Customer shopping
behaviour has changed
considerably over recent
years which has led
to a decrease in the
number of customers
using counters on a
regular basis in some
of our stores. This has
made it necessary to
review the relevance of
each counter within our
stores. "
" Over the last
two years, as we've
responded to the
challenges of Covid, our
business has changed
faster than at any other
point in our history. Our
customers are shopping
differently, and many
of our colleagues are
working differently too, "
according to Tesco.
" This means we need to
continuously look at how
we can run our business
as simply and efficiently
as possible, so we can

re-invest in the things
that add most value for
customers. "
Shoppers want
sustainable
products more than
retailers know
A gap exists between the
percentage of consumers
who say they are
interested in sustainable
items and the percentage
of retailers who say they
believe consumers are
interested in such items,
according to two 2021
surveys from First Insight.
An online survey
of more than 1,000
consumers took place
in July and found 68%
of respondents said
they were willing to pay
more for sustainable
products. A survey of
51 retail senior-level
business executives
took place in October.
Thirty-four percent said
they thought consumers
would pay more for
sustainable products.
While 72% of consumers
said sustainability was
a very or somewhat
important purchase
consideration, 51% of
executives said they
thought sustainability
was a very or somewhat
important purchase
consideration for
consumers.
When asked why they
prefer sustainable brands,
17% of consumers
said to improve the
environment, 16% said
social signaling, 11%
said to reduce carbon
footprint, 9% said to
reduce production waste
and 8% said animal
welfare.
Another gap came in
brand importance. Fiftysix
percent of consumers
said they ranked brand
name as somewhat or
very important while
94% of executives said
they thought consumers
rank brand name as
somewhat or very
important.
Rabobank report
forecasts beef
industry changes
In " Beef Supply in a
Post-Covid World, "
RaboResearch shares
how beef demand will
remain high over the
next few years but not
without some changes in
the market.
" While a cattle
producer has little
or no control over
what happens in the
beef supply chain
post-harvest, it will be
important for livestock
producers to be aware
of changes occurring
throughout the supply
chain, " said report
author, Don Close, senior
animal protein analyst
with Rabo AgriFinance.
" Any changes, any
inventory building, any
additional controls and
inspections could have
a direct impact on the
total cost of beef to the
end user, which could
change historical norms
for live-to-wholesale
and live-to-retail price
spreads. "
Rabobank forecasts
automation in packing
plants to increase
the efficiency of the
labor force.
" The initial
introduction of advanced
technology will not serve
as a replacement for
labor, " the report said. " It
will serve to make labor
more efficient. However,
the transformation
toward greater
automation will require a
workforce with different
skill sets or extensive
retraining. "
The report also
explores overhauling
transportation system
technology and
infrastructure to reduce
carbon emissions and
the risk of backlogs.
" The challenge of
finding and retaining
a ready workforce has
increased labor costs
to the tipping point
where investments into
technology, robotics and
software advancements
become economical, "
Close added. " Anything
that de-risks packers
from becoming a dam
that slows the flow of
market-ready cattle is a
win for cattle producers. "
