Meet California's Top Retailers

grocery conference

The grocery industry is rapidly reshaping itself. Spurred by emerging technologies and innovative new competitors, there is a discernable shift in how food is produced, distributed and purchased. These evolutionary changes are redefining the industry’s traditional values of convenience, selection and affordability.

Retailers and brands are adapting to these new shopping realities by morphing their businesses through consolidations, mergers, targeted expansions and incubating new concepts. Grocers are creating smaller, smarter stores with a more targeted assortment of goods and integrating new technologies into their operations.

As a result, the new shape of the food industry is efficient, decentralized, agile and reimagines everything from sourcing and supply chain to sales collaboration and customer loyalty.

Join us as we explore the transformation and learn how to reshape your business for the next wave of grocery retailing.
