    Top Trends in Fresh: Embrace Future Consumers for More Success Today

    • Wednesday, August 24, 2022 (1pm - 2pm US/Central)
    Consumers under 40 have different shopping behaviors --and the grocery channel's share of wallet among these younger consumers is shrinking, especially in fresh foods. For growth today and as a necessity for long-term success, produce, deli, bakery, meat and seafood suppliers and retailers need to differentiate their offerings with a focus on meeting the unique needs of younger consumers. The reality is that what worked well for decades with prior generations does not inherently work for Millennials and Gen Zs, who have grown up in a world wholly different from their parents.
