Phil Lempert's 2018 Top 10 Trends Forecast

2017 will go down in food history as the year that changed the grocery and CPG worlds. Not only have we witnessed a huge shift with companies like Amazon and Walmart changing their food strategies, but also, for the first time, it’s cool to be in grocery. Supermarket companies like Hy-Vee are attracting top talent that two years ago would have gone to Silicon Valley startups. We are attracting the best and the brightest and that is creating a valuable change for us all. 

And that means for some retailers it will be more difficult to keep up – and in some cases even survive. 

Our trends this year take an in-depth look at the factors that will be influencing every grocer, every brand and every consumer. I hope you will join us for this important discussion. Over the next ten days, right here on The Lempert report, we will be discussing one trend per day. 

The 2018 Top Trends will be focused around: 









Politics & Food

And of course,

Future Supermarkets 

For each our in-depth discussion and insights will help you and your organization understand the opportunities and together we will make the food world better than it was when we first joined it.
