“Online grocery is still one of the fastest-growing channels of the grocery retail sector, but growth slowed for the third consecutive year in 2018. The number of users is plateauing as retailers struggle to engage new customers onto services that are still predominantly targeting big-basket shops in a period where more frequent and fluid shopping behaviour has entered the market. Therefore to ensure continued rapid growth there is need for the sector as a whole to evolve the services provided to consumers, to ensure the channel remains relevant in this fast-moving sector.”
– Nick Carroll, Associate Director – Retail
