FMI Connect is pleased to host Larry Levin, executive vice president 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.
Consumers adopted many different shopping behaviors to make their dollars stretch when the Great Recession began in the late 2000s. They are doing their homework and not shopping on a whim. This trend extends to the perimeter of the store, where a whopping 40 percent of consumers use digital tools before making fresh food purchases.
With e-commerce sales forecasted to grow to 10 percent of total grocery sales by 2022, retailers can position themselves now to win shoppers and market share. To find out more about the latest digital trends, across baby boomers, millennials and Generation X, join IRI and FMI for the final installment of their Top Trends in Fresh webinar series focusing on the “Connected Consumer.”

-How vastly different households purchase fresh foods
-How digital media drives purchases across households
-How perimeter departments will be prime opportunities for digital tools that influence consumers in the store
