Sustainability 2020 Strategy

Their challenge

Our client, a major food wholesaler, believed that they had the opportunity to meet consumer needs relating to sustainability by leveraging their strong credentials in local retailing. Specifically they wanted to understand how they could bring sustainability to life through their brands and support consumers to lead more sustainable lifestyles.

Our solution

We put together a project team with specialist knowledge of sustainability, retail insight and international market development to carry out an audit of international retail sustainability strategies. A summary presentation was put together focusing on market context, shopper insight and retailer benchmarking.

The outcome

The project captured the relevant key insights into the issue of sustainability and provided a clear picture of today’s sustainability landscape as well as identifying the main trends that will shape the future sustainability agenda.
