2020 Online Food Report

2020 has changed the face of food ecommerce—likely forever.

With the coronavirus causing panic buying, lower in-store inventory and cautious consumer shopping at physical locations, consumers have significantly transformed their buying habits. In fact, 31% of U.S. shoppers reported being likely to continue using online grocery pickup or delivery once the pandemic is over, 20 percentage points more than the 11% of consumers buying online prior to COVID-19.

The food and grocery industry has made a massive shift since its 3.3% total sales growth in 2019, totaling $1.25 trillion, up from $41.37 billion in 2018. Ecommerce represented only 4.3% of those sales, though the online market itself grew 30.7% in its own right.

The just-released 2020 Online Food Report reveals new insights into grocery ecommerce, while examining the changing—and complicated—coronavirus landscape of food sales.
