More Sales Channels to Reach Shoppers

Shoppers use new sales channels to buy their everyday groceries. The market offers an increasing amount of options to meet their individual needs. Shoppers can be guided in this changing sales context, especially in the direction of convenience products.

More Choice for Shoppers

The number of locations and moments when shoppers can be influenced increases. Where local suppliers and regular supermarkets used to be the only options, they can now choose between XL supermarkets, express or local supermarkets, pick up points for online orders, airports with shopping and dining facilities, train stations and petrol stations with elaborate services and (roadside) restaurants.

More Room for Snacks

Today’s shoppers have a different daily routine, something that is reflected in their eating habits. Instead of having a large meal three times a day, there now is more room for snacks. Retailers quickly adapt to this by stimulating snacking and sales opportunities. They often offer convenience products: from ready meals, prepared salads and pre-cut vegetables, to deli-sandwiches and drinks.

More Sales Channels: A European Trend

The trend to reach shoppers through various sales channels is visible throughout Europe. Small-scale supermarkets in city centres offer a growing selection of convenience products, whereas XL supermarkets in the suburbs offer a broad range of products. Shoppers also find convenience online. Instead of planning their weekly shopping trip on a Saturday, they can now order online 24/7 and choose a convenient time to pick up their groceries or have them delivered.

    Launch of 'Delicious outside the refrigerator' campaign

    Most people put the tomatoes they just bought straight into the refrigerator, but this isn't very sensible. Few consumers are acquainted with the advice not to refrigerate tomatoes. 'The highest time for a focused campaign,' Wim van den Berg, Marketing Manager, informs us. 'Our campaign will include the distribution of brochures and stickers, as well as calling on all of our supply chain partners to pass on the message.'
