This report by FMI and Checkpoint Systems, Inc. looks at the issues of employee theft, shoplifting, organize retail crime and other forms of theft in food retail. This year’s report shows a decline in average shrink and demonstrates that loss prevention is back on track as the economy rebounds. Retailers are training their associates more, curbing internal theft and fighting back against shoplifting and organized retail crime. All signs point to a strong loss prevention initiative that will continue into the future.
The Food Marketing Institute has long supported U.S. food retailers through annual surveys of shopper behaviors and attitudes, providing consistent metrics to evaluate the changing market landscape.
