Key Challenges in the Food Retail Industry in China (Graphic: Business Wire)
"The COVID-19 pandemic has had a severe impact on the commodity prices and demand for essential and non-essential items. Besides, recent studies show that two out of five people in China are focusing on health and well-being in the light of COVID-19. As such, food retailers in China will need to revisit their sourcing strategies, streamline product offerings, and assess the agility of their supply chain operations," says an industry expert at Infiniti Research.

The client is a global food retail manufacturer and supplier with manufacturing units in China. The client faced difficulties in addressing consumer shifts such as the increasing focus on health and well-being, and rising preference for local brands. Due to this difficulty, they encountered a steady decline in sales for three consecutive months. Home delivery orders increased rapidly, and the client faced challenges in meeting customers’ delivery requirements. The client noted that consumers were interested in reasonably priced products and realized the need to scale up e-commerce channels and their home delivery capacity. Therefore, the client wanted to revamp their pricing strategy and understand potential market opportunities in the second half of 2020. The food retail industry client partnered with Infiniti Research, to leverage our market opportunity identification solution, to take longer-term actions to succeed in the post-COVID-19 business environment.
