Despite moves to source more produce from within the UK to offset currency fluctuations, inflation will cause prices to rise across all food & grocery categories, boosting spend by 19.6% over the next five years, reaching £172.0bn in 2022. Price competition from discounters will go some way to mitigate price rises but will subsequently hit margins.

Adverse weather conditions across mainland Europe towards the end of 2016 have resulted in forecast fruit & vegetable inflation of 2.9% in 2017, driving growth of 21.7% in the category between 2017 and 2022. 35-54 year olds have the highest spend per head in 2017, contributing to 40% of total F&G spend, as they support families. The 65+s will account for a larger proportion of spend in the long term, so retailers must tailor ranges and experiences.

Younger shoppers are driving growth in top-up shopping missions, with 8.2% of those aged 16-34 going food & grocery shopping once a day. The online food & grocery market will rise 43.3% between 2017 and 2022, adding £4.9bn to the value of the market – reaching £16.2bn. Penetration will grow 1.6ppts, to 9.4% in 2022 – still a long way behind non-food levels of 26.3%, despite improved online fulfilment options and new players investing in the channel.

Value for money is the largest purchase motivator for food & grocery shopping, particularly among the 55-64 age group. This is closely followed by quality, which has increased in importance on the previous year, by 1.0 percentage point. Despite squeezed disposable incomes, we expect that the demand and expectation for quality will continue to grow. Food provenance must be showcased; those shifting from international suppliers to British must market the benefits to consumers, while investment in premium quality private label ranges will support ATV.

Customer service and the instore experience have increased the most on last year in terms of importance, ensuring that fostering an engaging instore environment is crucial to boosting appeal. Tesco, Waitrose, Morrisons and the discounters have already invested in store refurbishments and more shop floor staff.

Market leader Tesco is simplifying its ranging and investing in the instore experience, to better resonate with shoppers. This will help it to maintain a share of 22.2% in 2017. Like Tesco, Morrisons has also made a comeback after five years of l-f-l declines, with its share forecast to remain stable at 8.2% in 2017.
