The food fight continues in the online grocery world. Online Grocery Industry Review provides an overview of where leading grocery, mass, club, and pure-play retailers stand with their eCommerce operations in food and consumables; developments since 2015; and the direction forward.

Looking at the landscape, we identified three themes in online grocery to guide suppliers planning with retailers in this space.

- Click-and-collect expansion: More national and regional online grocery players are testing flexibility in online order fulfillment through click-and-collect.
- Growth in third-party partnerships: As Amazon raises expectations for immediacy with Prime Now, retailers are enlisting third-party partnerships to support a variety of faster delivery tests.
- Elevating experience, ease, and connection: Online grocery retailers are implementing site navigation upgrades, digital personalization, lifestyle content creation, and improved mobile functionality to elevate their online positioning and ease the shopping trip.

For suppliers, it will be imperative to align to their retail partners’ online grocery strategy to remain competitive in this evolving omnichannel environment.

This report will help you understand what your brand needs to bring to the table for more than 20 top retailers across channels.
