The future of retail

SVP supports international companies as they enter the German, Austrian and Swiss markets. We have tremendous sector-specific expertise when it comes to market or location analyses, as well as identifying clients or business partners in the DACH region. The food industry is an important segment of German retail sector. With over 5,850 different enterprises, it’s the third largest segment. Issues like environmentally friendly and sustainable consumption, continuing digitisation and a high degree of competition are influencing the manufacturers and retailers. Volatile commodities prices, the growing retail market and changing consumer behaviour are just a few of the challenges the industry is grappling with.
