Increased consumer digital engagement, e-commerce usage and food-at-home purchases likely won’t shrink back to pre-pandemic levels as COVID-19 abates, Albertsons Cos. President and CEO Vivek Sankaran said this week at the FMI Midsummer Strategic Executive Exchange.
Sankaran spoke in a Q&A with McKinsey & Co. senior partner Sajal Kohli during the virtual session “Retail 2021: The State of Grocery.” McKinsey partner Bill Aull also gave a peek at new research on the pandemic’s impact on grocery, done in tandem with FMI. An online-only event, the Midsummer Strategic Executive Exchange runs June 21 to 25.
