Food and food delivery services grew exponentially last year, with food market data analyzer FSIN figures showing, but experts suggest that fierce competition could eliminate most of the speedy services.
The organization examined 500 grocery stores, especially delivery services, with total sales in 2021 up 278.6% compared to 2019 to € 3.9 billion.
“We expect the market to grow 5-10% each year,” FSIN director Inga Blokker told news platform Nu.nl. “Currently, our total market share is 11% of the total food market. Delivery has become unique to the sector.
The popularity of food and food delivery services, including supermarkets, not only impacts transportation and neighborhoods, but is also reflected in the growth of market leaders.
Ubereats and Deliveroo are at the top of the list of fastest producers, followed by supermarket delivery services SPAR and PLUS, food delivery services Uitgekookt, and web-based supermarket picnics.
Prompt delivery services such as Gorilla, Flink, Getil and Zap grew primarily due to the coronavirus crisis and sold a total of € 184.4 million in the Dutch market last year.
Supermarkets are looking for increasingly quick service to deliver goods. Jumbo Supermarket has a contract with a gorilla, and Albert Heijn and Corp use platforms such as Thuisbezorgd.nl and Deliveroo.
Consumer behavior has changed over the last few years, Blokker said. “We are more stressed as a society. That’s the main reason people deliver food and shopping. They don’t feel like lining up in supermarkets at the last minute. And for Corona, for example. , The restaurant had no choice but to deliver their meals, “Blooker said.
But the speedy delivery service market is crowded, she said, with only one or two survivors.
