FMI Connect is pleased to host Sally Lyons Wyatt, executive vice president and practice leader at IRI and Rick Stein, vice president of fresh foods at the Food Marketing Institutel as part of the FMI Webinar series leading up to the 2016 FMI Connect, June 20-23 in Chicago, IL.
Convenience is definitely on the menu for today’s busy consumers. They are seeking foods that are easier to eat, faster to prepare and are available in customizable portions. And grocery retailers are responding by creating special offerings and introducing new areas within departments to serve these needs.
While examples are different across departments, such as offering one slice of cake in the bakery, snack-portioned fruits and vegetables in produce and ready-to-eat cheese and charcuterie boards in the deli, retailers that focus their efforts on tailoring these offerings to their store base can see sales increase rapidly. To find out more about these latest trends, join IRI and FMI for the fourth installment of their Top Trends in Fresh webinar series focusing on “Convenience.”
