With the help of increasingly sophisticated technology, e-commerce retail is evolving to meet consumer demand faster and with more ferocity than any other channel weíve seen. Which is why itís not surprising that e-commerce will arguably be the biggest investment successful brick-and-mortar retailers make over the next several years. What is surprising is that there is little understanding of how to translate investments into a winning strategy. From assortment to technology, training to operations; grocery retailers arenít immune to the pervasive need to get e-commerce right. Over 40% of shoppers surveyed that donít purchase groceries online now say they will in the near future. Is your business ready to meet shoppers in the emerging omnichannel food environment? To help you heed the call for a more e-commerce-ready organization, Nielsen and FMI have embarked on a multi-year study uncovering what it takes for brick-and-mortar grocery retailers to compete in the online marketplace.

Join us as we reveal the initial findings of over six months of primary research and analysis, including:

- The future dollar opportunity for online grocery retail - which may shock you
- How much grocery shopping has the potential to shift to e-commerce and what to do when it does
- The table stakes online food shoppers expect from retailers and where you can up the ante once you perfect them
- The critical e-commerce strategy, tactics and enablers that will guide future investments
- How manufacturers, retailers and third parties will collaborate to drive loyalty with online food shoppers
