Featured insights and store visits from Western Europe

Six months ago we shared a series of hypotheses focused around how retail, society and shoppers could be impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. With many countries continuing to feel its impacts, we have revisited our expectations and outlook for the next six months.

10 sustainability case studies, we have spotted in the food and CPG industry, during the third quarter of 2020.

We look at the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on Europe's largest grocery retailer: its performances, expansion and strategic priorities including the acceleration of its digital transformation. 

We talk to Reactor Sweden about its strategic partnership with Reitan Convenience and discuss the store of the future.

COVID-19 is forcing retailers to rethink the function and features of their physical stores, providing new impetus for innovation. Find inspiration from global operators in our Q3 highlights.
