Covered in this report
This report covers the grocery sector in France, with a focus on supermarket, hypermarket and convenience store operators. The report does not cover the smaller food retailers, such as specialists (bakers, butchers etc), markets, CTNs or wholesalers, in detail, nor does it cover food sold via nonfood retailers, such as department stores.
The report combines analysis of the market in France, including market sizes and forecasts for consumer spending on grocery items and food retailers’ sales, along with our in-depth consumer data which analyses shoppers’ behaviours in France. We also include a number of relevant company profiles.
For our consumer research this year we asked questions on the following topics:
- Who shops for groceries
- Shopping for groceries in-store vs online
- Grocery retailers used
- A series of attitudinal statements relating to shopping for groceries.
For the purpose of this report, Mintel has used the following definitions:
Consumer spending: The total amount spent by French households (including sales tax) on food, drink and tobacco. This is for retail purchases only, and excludes foodservice spending, such as through bars, hotels and restaurants. Tobacco is the exception to this rule.
Retail sales: Total sales of all types of goods and services (excluding sales tax) by grocery retailers. It includes online sales of these retailers where the majority of sales are in bricks and mortar outlets.
Expert analysis from a specialist in the field
Written by Natalie MacMillan, a leading analyst in the Retail sector, her extensive knowledge delivers in-depth commentary and analysis to highlight current trends and add expert context to the numbers.
Grocery retailing in France is changing – people are shopping less at hypermarkets and more at local, convenience stores. The digital world is making shoppers more demanding and online grocery is beginning to develop beyond the Drive click and collect model. Several retailers have introduced rapid home delivery services in some big cities in response to Amazon Prime Now, and the Monoprix supermarket chain will launch its home delivery service using Ocado technology in 2019. There is a growing awareness of wellbeing and the environment that is having a significant influence on the way people shop and eat today. The government has passed legislation to reduce food waste and to improve the supply chain, so retailers need to ensure that their business models meet consumer demands as well as regulatory criteria
