What’s the forecast for the food and grocery industry?

The food and grocery sector thrived during the pandemic, largely due to the shutdown of the food service industry and the sector’s subsequent necessity, panic-induced bulk purchasing, and spending more time at home. The market has grown as a result of inflation. Consumer unwillingness to go out and socialize, and the reopening of several hospitality facilities, helped maintain the demand for groceries, particularly online, in 2021. As consumer behavior changes, we consume more food and drink at home, and inflation increases basket sizes. GlobalData predicts that the sector will continue to hold a higher share than had been predicted prior to the pandemic. This is true despite the fact that the food and grocery sector's share of overall retail will decline from its peak in 2020. This report will discuss market forecasts and key themes in the global food & grocery industry in 2022 and beyond. It covers:
  • Market drivers and inhibitors
  • Five-year forecasts and the impact of COVID-19
  • The performance of the online channel versus offline
  • Major trends in the market including rapid delivery, ambient retailing, supply chain disruption, and inflation
Assess developments within this sector to help your business thrive in 2022 and beyond.

The move comes just two years after ARC acquired L’Artisane Food – the Belgian market leader in fresh branded pizzas.

ARC, which specialises in developing small firms active in the food industry, said recent new products from Ansolive – including humus, tzatziki and tarama – indicated a “common commitment to authenticity and flavour” of products such as those produced by L’Artisane.

Ansolive has 12 production lines with a production capacity of 120,000 trays of olives and tapas platters per day.

“This new acquisition is part of the shared vision of the company’s three entrepreneurial founders, who aim to invest in and support Belgian businesses specialising in processing fresh, flavoursome and quality food products,” ARC said.

MD Christophe Mottint said: “Ansolive is a magnificent company that is ripe for further growth. That is what we are going to achieve by continuing to invest in the production just as we did with L’Artisane, where we have just developed a new line of pizzas baked on stone in a wood-fired oven.” 

“Our aim is to see the Ansolive business grow, to enable it to be ever more at the leading edge,” Mottint said. “We want to play a role by creating employment here in Belgium around what is a shared passion for the three of us – fresh food products of high quality prepared by skilled artisans.”
