Demand for Convenience in Foodservice Sparks Internet Retailing Sector in Norway


featuring Heidi Resset, Research Analyst

Home delivery foodservice orders saw a 4% increase in value terms in 2013, but less than 1% of grocery sales occur online in Norway. Online sales growth is driven by ease of use of technology and recipe subscription services but true growth and changing consumer behavior will take time.

Commodities Roundup: August and September 2014


An HodgsonAn Hodgson, Industry, Infrastructure and Environment Manager

View An Hodgson's profile on LinkedIn

Commodity prices in energy and agriculture fell in August 2014. Natural gas prices in the US fell by 3.8% for the first time in nine months as a result of supply stockpiles and mild weather. Pork prices plunged by 15.1% from the 29-year high seen in July. Falling energy and agricultural prices both lower production costs for businesses and increase purchasing power for consumers, which boost GDP in affected markets. Looking forward, we can expect the price gap between crude oil in the US and Europe to widen in the coming months.

Основные тенденции на Российском рынке мороженого

Julija PЮлия Полищук, аналитик 

Один из самых важных атрибутов лета - мороженое. Россияне всегда крайне положительно относились к этому продукту. По данным Euromonitor International в 2013 году средний русский потребил немногим больше чем 3 л. этой сладости. Всё таки несмотря на разнообразность предложений, Российский рынок мороженого ещё далек от насыщения, а растущее количество детей в возрасте от 5-14 лет ведет к большому потенциалу этого рынка в будущем.

Attracting Consumers to Ice Cream in Russia

Julija PWith Julija Poliscuk, Research Analyst

Russians have always been and continue to be steady consumers of ice cream, although the product remains an impulse buy in the country.  In fact, 75 percent of all ice cream sales in Russia are for single portion sizes. As a result, many manufacturers of ice cream products rely on eye-catching packaging and constant updates to attract consumers. These consumers are mainly children whom companies target using cartoon characters and unique shapes.

Nutrition Podcast Series: Ongoing Innovation in Sodium Reduction


Lauren Bandy with Diana Cowland - Senior Health and Wellness Analyst and Lauren Bandy - Nutrition Analyst

Many consumers are aware of the health effects of a high-salt diet, and although the current health trend is to avoid sugars and fats, innovation in salt reduction is still an ongoing process. Currently most reduced salt food is implemented via stealth reduction so consumers are not aware they’re buying a product with lower sodium and therefore not aware of a difference in taste, but other methods are proving successful as well. Companies are developing apps that allow consumers to choose food items based on salt content and creating methods to enhance perceived saltiness using taste-modulating bioactive compounds, for example. Although companies and governments remain dedicated to reducing sodium consumption, there is still a long way to go to achieve a truly positive public health outcome.

Economic Reforms in the Eurozone


Growth figures for the second quarter in the eurozone are disappointing but countries that have enacted reforms are performing better. Spain for instance enacted financial and employment reforms and growth turned positive in the third quarter of 2013. Ireland enacted reforms as well and is now one of the top performers in the eurozone with consumer confidence growing and unemployment on a downward trend. Countries in the eurozone that have been slow to reform, such as Italy, are still paying the price. The country is in the midst of a triple dip recession with public debt reaching a new peak.

Examining the Top Ten most Motorised Cities

Kasparas AdomaitisWith Kasparas Adomaitis, Senior City Analyst

In general, average income is the single most important factor that determines consumer preferences to spend on transport or to buy private vehicles. However, lower income cities such as Kuala Lumpur, Vilnius and Athens are among the top ten cities with the highest ratio of passenger car ownership in the world.


In these cities, passenger cars are a necessity due to inadequate transportation infastructure. Unfortunatley, poor quality vehicles tend to flood these cities, leading to air pollution and traffic.

The Role of Social Media in China

China holds the biggest social media networks by user numbers outside of Facebook, and as a result these networks have a large influence on many other industries including travel, ecommerce and banking. In fact, many retailers own their own social networks which Chinese consumers access to find discounts and deals. This blur between social media and ecommerce is more apparent in China than in the Western world.

Burger King recently announced they will purchase Tim Hortons for eleven billion dollars and move its headquarters to Canada. The new company will own about 23.5 billion in terms of annual revenue, putting them behind McDonald’s and Yum! Brands as the third largest consumer foodservice operator in the world. This merger gives Tim Hortons an opportunity to aggressively expand in new markets and gives Burger King a way to compete in the breakfast and coffee segments.
