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 US$5.7m project will see an 85,000 sq ft warehouse will be built on the south side of the existing building. Construction is set to begin at end of the year.

Franklin, Tennessee-based Red Collar said it needs the extra production capacity to help meet the high demand for its products,

Greg Wolking, the company’s chief operating officer, said: “The Clinton plant continues to be one of the fastest-growing plants in Red Collar Pet Foods’ coast-to-coast network. When completed, the warehouse expansion enables capacity for future growth and additional hiring.”

The workforce at the Clinton facility is 111. Nationwide, Red Collar has almost 800 employees at its six manufacturing facilities and its corporate offices in Franklin.

Red Collar Pet Foods was created in December 2018 as a result of Arbor Investments’ acquisition of Mars Petcare’s Exclusive Brands business.

In February 2019, the newly-rebranded company acquired Joplin, Missouri-based Hampshire Pet Products, a manufacturer of baked and cold-formed pet treats, and now claims to be the largest private-label and contract manufacturers of dog and cat food treats in North America, supplying the “most iconic retailers and brands”.
