Grocery

The coronavirus crisis has upended the grocery industry around the world, demanding profound changes to supply chains, channel strategies and retail operations. Amid the shifting scenarios and priorities, our clients know that now is the time to plan for a post-pandemic world that will be fundamentally transformed.

The recent turbulence only accelerates changes that were already underway for grocery businesses. New consumer habits and fresh competition have collided with increasing CapEx demands and downward price pressure – all factors that conspire to limit profits and growth.

We help grocery organizations across the industry ensure their strategy both realizes near-term results and positions them to win in the future. Our experts can help with category strategy and assortment, pricing and promotion, delivering a seamless omnichannel experience, supplier negotiations, store operations, cost reduction, and more. As leaders in retail consulting we bring unmatched experience and a robust set of tools and capabilities to every engagement.
