Wal-Mart and Wild Oats in Partnership to Provide Organic Food to the Masses

With the relaunch of the Wild Oats range of organic products sold almost exclusively at its US stores, Wal-Mart intends to benefit from the marked recovery of organic food sales in the market but also give its brand image a boost, as it is confronted with stagnating sales and footfall.

As leading competitors, including Kroger, Target and Whole Foods, cite strong rises in organic food sales, Wal-Mart sees potential to satisfy this rising demand while differentiating its offer by undercutting its rivals on price and remaining faithful to its EDLP (everyday low price) ethos. However, Wal-Mart’s sheer size may cause supply chain challenges in the organic food industry and could threaten its ability to achieve its claimed price advantage.

The Relationship Between Fashion and Beauty

Fashion brands are increasingly interested in expanding their beauty offerings beyond fragrances in an effort to both provide a more accessible entry price point for consumers reluctant to spend on luxury apparel and accessories and to expand market share through additional offerings in established markets. While some brands have been successful with this approach, others have seen their beauty offerings fall by the wayside.

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.

Is Internet Retailing Finally Having its Day in the UAE?

Karen Van DiesenAnalyst Insight by Karen Van Diesen - Research Analyst

Bricks and mortar retailers in the UAE have long been in denial about the internet being a viable threat to their businesses. But, as the rising growth of this channel in recent years has illustrated, internet retailing is not only making its mark, it is here to stay.

With all the mall extensions in the UAE, one can be forgiven for not thinking internet retailing has much potential in the country. The strong shopping culture, challenging logistics and a weak investment climate for online retailers have all posed a strong hurdle, hindering the channel from really taking off. In recent years, however, e-commerce players have been making strong headway in overcoming these barriers. Euromonitor International’s growth figures show the channel has tripled in size over the past five years, with sales reaching AED2.0 billion in 2014. And, the future of internet retailing also looks bright, with an expected constant value CAGR of 38% between 2014 and 2019.

Media Product Chains Face Challenges in Japan

Brick and mortar media stores have not seen the same rate of decline in Japan that they have seen in other developed markets.  Between 2008-2013, sales in these stores declined only 2% in Japan compared to 8% in North America.  Still, with the increasing digitalisation of media consumption in the youth market, these stores must fight to remain relevant.  Notable new concept stores offer retailtainment or products that can't be downloaded but it remains to be seen whether these stores can broaden their appeal to consumers younger than 50.
