Grocery sales reach $803B last year

As the dust settles from the height of the pandemic, one fact has become irrefutable: grocery retailers were among the biggest winners of the pandemic. As an essential business that played a critical role in ensuring food supply during a time of great uncertainty, the grocery industry grew by 9.4% in 2020 and sustained that growth in 2021, with total grocery sales reaching $803 billion last year, representing a nearly 16.0% increase over pre-pandemic levels.

Moving forward, grocers that wish to remain competitive will:

  • Focus on technology innovations to meet growing online grocery demand
  • Create experiences to contend with the return of in-person dining
  • Navigate the impacts of inflation and rising prices of food-at-home
