JLL comments on the latest Kantar Worldpanel grocery market share figures


​18th October 2016 - Commenting on today’s latest grocery market share, Tim Vallance, head of JLL UK Retail, said: “The latest Kantar Worldpanel figures on grocery market share shows that the big 4 fightback is back on. Tesco’s recovery has been helped by a mixture of positive PR around Marmite gate and focus on development of new and popular brands like it’s ‘farm brands.’

“The grocery giants are waking up to the idea that shopping is now seamless: it's about obtaining goods: whether online or offline, through clicks or bricks, via multi or ‘omni-channel.' This will hopefully lead to greater technological and digital innovation in the sector which can only be good news for the consumer and the growing online grocery business.”

“We are still seeing deflation in the grocery market, but it will be interesting to see how prices in the sector will be impacted with the rise in inflation announced today.”
