Many consumers are cooking at home and enjoying the experience. This shift benefits grocers:
“According to a survey by PwC of more than 1,600 U.S. consumers, COVID-19 and the recession are driving changes in shopper behavior that could be beneficial for grocers long-term. The survey found that 42% of consumers say they won’t stop loading their pantries until COVID-19 is fully resolved, and that 64% will continue to maintain their current rate of pantry loading for the foreseeable future.”
