Food and Drink Retailing - UK - March 2014
“Food retailing remains highly competitive, but all the evidence indicates that competition is moving away from price. With almost perfect information in the market and most of the majors doing some form of price matching, we think that the competitive agenda will move to all the other key factors that make someone choose a particular retailer. Top of the list is the quality and range of own brands, but following that are store standards, product innovation, availability service standards. Food retailing has always been about value for money and that covers all the factors we have mentioned.”
– Richard Perks, Director of Retail Research
