Retail Roundup 2023 – A year in review

During 2023 the UK grocery retail sector experienced some significant transformations…

We were thrilled to witness the major multiples loosen their shackles on brands, which vastly increased creative in-store activations, whilst HFSS guidelines prompted a significant rise in branded in-aisle activity.

Retailers also dedicated greater efforts to creating meaningful online content for Shoppers, with interesting campaigns and initiatives to be found on their websites.

An exciting year, we’re sure you’ll agree!

For those familiar with our monthly Retail Roundups, you’ll know we love to tour the stores to see what’s hot (and sometimes not) and share our findings with the wider retail community.
