Description

“An unprecedented uptick in consumer spending on in-home food and drink as a result of the forced closure of foodservice outlets during the COVID-19 pandemic has been a boon for grocery retailers. National mid-size to large format supermarket chain and market leader Mercadona had the best year in its history in terms of sales in 2020, but regional supermarkets with their concentrated network of neighbourhood grocery stores reported the highest sales growth on the back of increased top-up food shopping and consumers choosing to shop locally.”

– Stephen Mayles, Retail Analyst
