What’s in Store for the Grocery Industry?

6:00 p.m. | Wednesday, August 22, 2018

The grocery business is changing. Shifting consumer preferences, business consolidation and evolving supply chains are all influencing where we get our food and what’s in the aisles. As longtime staples of our communities, grocery stores will continue to impact community economic development, neighborhood planning, the shape of the workforce and more. Join us to hear about current trends and the future of the grocery industry. Co-presented by the Berkeley Food Institute.
