Why Retailers Are Keeping It Fresh: Fresh Foods Not Spoiled by Inflationary Heat
Despite inflationary heat affecting many of our wallets, fresh foods continue to maintain healthy sales contributions at retail. In fact, fresh foods can comprise between 30-60 percent of total food, grocery and personal care expenses on average, depending on country and type of fresh product. Let’s face it, fresh foods are high-traffic volume boosters. They are a staple to a healthy diet, and we shop for fresh foods often.
New findings from the Nielsen Global Survey of Fresh Foods reveal how much fresh foods we consume, where we shop for fresh products and why we shop these preferred retail channels. By combining global survey research with Nielsen sales information collected from around the world, we unearth insights that re-define retail strategies to bolster sales in both the perimeter and center store aisles. The Shopper Trends Survey findings are based on a global study, covering 54 markets across 58 countries, with a total sample size of 87,000 respondents.
