Eco-conscious consumers are demanding more sustainable packaging options for their groceries.
The popularity of plant-based diets has led to an expansion in plant-based protein options within grocery stores.
Grocery stores are implementing programs to reduce food waste, such as selling produce with cosmetic imperfections, repurposing expired or unsold food.

Consumers are increasingly interested in supporting local businesses, leading to a rise in locally-sourced and artisanal products in grocery stores.
Advancements in voice-assistant technology have expanded into grocery shopping, allowing consumers to add items to their online shopping carts using voice commands.
