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.

Calihan, located in the city of Peoria, Illinois, has been run and owned by the Landon family since 1937 and is headed up by president Tom Landon. The company “specialises in fresh pre-rigor pork” – meat removed from the carcass prior to chilling – primal cuts and pork offal. It supplies “some of the leading US fresh sausage makers”, according to its website. 

“Calihan Pork Processors is an excellent fit with our company,” said Steve Van Lannen, president and chief operating officer of American Foods Group. “They are a Midwest company with strong family values; they put their employees first, build partner relationships with customers, and operate their business with integrity.”

American Foods, based in Green Bay, Wisconsin, is owned by Rosen’s Diversified, described as “a vertically integrated family of companies that provides products from the farm to the table”. The beef processor supplies the retail and foodservice channels, and also offers a private-label manufacturing service.

It supplies fresh, frozen and value-added beef from its eight production plants in the US.
