While food & grocery remains the largest, most homogenous and most valuable retail sector in the UK, there is still scope for increased customer penetration as has been proven this year. Increasing flexibility of new formats and the changing shopping habits of UK grocery consumers have meant that more people are shopping for groceries as they adapt to a new way of spending.

Levels of loyalty amongst all grocery shoppers have increased in 2014, despite only three retailers registering increases in loyalty.
Over half of UK grocer shoppers state that price is the reason they are loyal to a particular grocer rather than another, indicating quite how much pressure consumers continue to find themselves under in 2014
