Regarding this sector, during the pandemic it was the protagonist of a real boom. While in the “new normal”, growth continues, registering + 4.2%, with peaks of 8.8% for the food grocery. Penetration reached 42.4% (+8 points compared to pre-Covid) equal to 10.8 million online shoppers (+2.4 million compared to pre-Covid). The performance of the top 30 producers, which together account for over 31% of the assortments, and of the private label (17%) were particularly good. But there is also room for SMEs, so numerous in the agri-food sector: they are almost 900 and offer over 5,800 brands.
