We share our thoughts on predictions for Christmas 2022 for wholesale, retail and foodservice.

Part 4 of TWC Trends Summer Edition 2022 considers how much of a priority are sustainability and environmental concerns in light of the cost-of-living crisis?
Our latest TWC Trends research unpicks how consumers are adapting their behaviour in light of increased pressure on household budgets due to the cost-of-living crisis.
Foodservice buying group, Caterforce, which brings together nine of the largest independent wholesalers in the UK, has appointed data & digital experts TWC to conduct a customer research project for the group.
Whilst a third of those aged 55+ claimed to be a member of a grocery loyalty scheme, just 7% of those aged 18-34 did. Surely this is at odds, with those most in need of cheaper prices, least likely to be able to access them – and a strong rationale for creating a loyalty scheme that resonates with these younger shoppers.
Part four of Autumn Trends focuses on ‘do good, feel good’ – the impact of environmental and sustainability concerns on consumer choices.
Part three of Autumn Trends focuses on savvy shopping – balancing value as well as premiumisation to meet divergent consumer needs
Part two of Autumn Trends focuses on the online explosion – the digitalisation and delivery of food and drink and its impact on the convenience and foodservice sectors

Firstly, the UK has officially become the 3rd largest ecommerce economy in the world, behind China, and only just behind South Korea (by only 0.1% of GDP).

Tanya Pepin: Blog Edition 1 – Covid-19 – ‘Poacher turned game-keeper’ as foodservice collaboration shows signs of going a step further…
In the wake of Covid-19, we asked; what will consumers make of big pack sizes and changes to the way they shop?
As a team, we’ve been imbedded in Wholesale, Retail and the Supply Chain for more than a decade (you will have seen us around), but still people say they are not sure what we actually do! We may surprise you…
