Join Us on Our Journey

As the pandemic rounds yet another corner, the California grocery industry turns its attention to the road ahead. Navigating supply chain bottlenecks, rapid inflation and labor-related speedbumps, retailers and brands are finding ways to do more with less while driving towards “What’s Next.”

Store traffic and e-commerce adoption levels remain elevated, while consumers’ interest in cooking and working from home mark some of the lasting impacts along this route. The terrain requires the grocery industry to redraw its map by employing new skills, experimenting with new approaches, and accelerated decision-making.

The new retail roadmap features resiliency planning, better end-to-end supply visibility, fostering employee wellbeing and inclusion, and prioritizing digital and autonomous tools on the path to sustained profitability.
