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 new line, being rolled out in frozen aisles across the country, are “oven-baked, never fried, made with no artificial flavours or colours, and come in a variety of choices to satisfy more tastes and cravings than ever before”, McCain said.

The McCain Marché range includes Harvest Pockets, available in roasted chicken, chicken alfredo and three cheese and spinach varieties. The new line also includes bite-sized Protein Pop’ables, “with 14g to 23g of protein per serving”, available in chicken parmesan, Jamaican beef and Italian sausage variants. The range also features Pizza Pockets, available in pepperoni, deluxe and three cheese.

Vikram Bawa, McCain’s vice-president of marketing, said: “We know Canadians are looking for more in their snacks. Empty calories are out and simple ingredients are in. People want more satisfying snack choices they can feel good about and that better fit their lifestyles.”

In June, McCain Foods announced an expansion of capacity at its production facility in Florenceville-Bristol, Canada, to meet “growing demand” for hash browns and other speciality products.
