The global spread of Covid19 virus has changed the online grocery shopping landscape permanently. Online grocery has been slow to start, but during this spring consumers have shifted to buy food online. Estimated online grocery sales volumes are three to four times higher than before the Covid19 outbreak. All studies indicate this growth is sticking and as a result there has been a fundamental change in consumer behaviour. We are facing the 2nd wave of Covid19 and retailers should be prepared to serve their customers on and offline.

As online grocery experts, Naveo Commerce has unique insight into consumer behaviour within the online grocery space. Our clients have seen online sales volumes triple or quadruple during this exceptional spring mainly due to the call for social distancing and avoidance of public places which saw customers turning to eCommerce in droves.

According to the Office for National Statistics in the UK, data on customer behaviour indicates that customers who shopped online for the first time during the pandemic, have continued to do so even as the outbreak slowed. Therefore, it’s very important to be able to accommodate the “New Normal” in online grocery and be prepared to meet the surge in demand that’s expected as the 2nd wave of the pandemic sweeps over us.
