Marketers at the ncaa Marketplaces and Marketplaces of the Americas conference said they see no reason to panic.
“You know, if the economy is good, it’s going to be great for consumers,” said David T. Bailor, chief executive of NCAA Marketplaces.
“The other thing that is a little bit concerning is, I think you’ve seen in the past, there’s been a bit of a shift away from the commodity market in the U.K., where there is a greater emphasis on the retail space.
So, we’re looking at a little more of a mix.”
Marketplaces executives say they expect to see growth in the industry in 2017 and beyond.
NCAAs Marketplaces CEO David T Bailar said the industry has “a long way to go.”
(NCAA) The shift away to the retail is being driven by a growing number of retailers who want to capitalize on consumers’ desire for “food and fresh food,” said Bailord.
“We’re seeing that in some markets, and some markets are getting a little jumpy.
And some of these retailers, we know, have a history of doing it.
We’ve seen it in our past and we think we’ll continue to see it in the future.”
Bailard said the biggest challenges for the industry are growing competition and growing competition from other retailers who are looking for ways to compete in the food market.
It’s a very competitive market. “
And it’s not a new trend, and it’s a good thing.
It’s a very competitive market.
But, we think there is something happening with consumers, and that’s the desire for fresh food and the desire to try new products,” he said.
The U.B.C. government, in a 2015 report, estimated the U-turn in the country’s food-marketing strategy is due to the growing availability of fresh produce.
The report said the trend to the marketplace is one of many factors driving the shift away for food retailers.
The Bailors point to a 2015 survey by the UBS Group, which found that in a global food market, consumers are spending an average of $5,000 per year on food.
“They’re shopping for the food they want, not the food that’s coming in,” Bailarr said.
Bailingors also pointed to the recent trend toward eating more fruits and vegetables.
“This is something we see across all markets.
We see the food trend,” Bails said.
