"The UK Food & Grocery Market 2018-2023", report offers comprehensive insight and analysis of the food & grocery market (including forecasts up to 2023), the major players, the main trends, and consumer attitudes. It provides in-depth analysis of the following: the hot issues impacting the market, strategies for success, market sizes and forecasts, retailer profiles, retailer market shares, consumer data and future outlook. The report focuses on food, tobacco & e-cigarettes, alcoholic drinks, soft drinks, household products and hot drinks. Consumer data is based on our 2018 UK How Britain Shops survey, using a panel of 10,000 nationally representative consumers.

The UK food & grocery market is forecast to reach £150.9bn in 2018, with forecast growth of 15.1% between 2018-2023. Mergers and acquisitions throughout 2017 and 2018 are consolidating the market, leading to challenges for suppliers - particularly with Brexit uncertainty mounting. Online continues to grow at pace, reaching 8.3% penetration in 2018.


• The health and wellness trend is damaging volume sales across key food & grocery sub-sectors, including meat & fish and sugar & sweet products

• The number of consumers who shop at least every few days has risen by 2.7ppts since last year to 46.2%, coupled by a 3.0ppts reduction in the percentage who only shop once a week.
