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

Based in the city of Gent in Belgium, United Petfood snapped up Cambrian Pet Foods earlier this year, a UK own-label business, a position now strengthened with the purchase of Teeling in the Netherlands.

Teeling has been producing wet foods for dogs and cats since 1989 with manufacturing facilities in Hoogeveen and Heerhugowaard. The company employs around 100 people.

“The acquisition strengthens the position of United Petfood as a full-service private-label pet-food producer and gives customers access to a complete range of in-house made products,” the Belgium firm said in a statement without disclosing the purchase price.

United Petfood supplies wet and dry pet foods, biscuits and snacks. With the two Teeling production plants under its wings, the company now operates 19 facilities in Belgium, the UK, France, the Netherlands, Italy, Spain, Poland and Romania.

“Thanks to this acquisition, we can further expand our offer in wet pet food and meet the increasing demand. We find it important to continue to produce all our products in-house and only go for the very best quality,” United Petfood’s board of directors were cited as saying.
