Netherlands: Retail Foods

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   NL2021-0016

The Dutch retail sector is fairly consolidated, with the two largest food retailers controlling nearly 60 percent of the market. Consumers in the Netherlands are increasingly looking for sustainable products, products that are healthy, and convenience products. They are expected to continue to buy more plant-based foods and private label brands as well. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, consumers have treated themselves through the buying of comfort foods as a form of compensation. The market share for shopping online also grew last year. Online shopping is expected to remain popular, and consumers are expected to continue to utilize home delivery services for their groceries. Finally, food retailers are expected to continue to invest in innovative foodservice concepts at their supermarkets in order to attract customers.
