Tetra Pak Index 2018

Find out what unique opportunities the growth of online groceries gives food and drink manufacturers.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Tetra Pak Index: Online Grocery

The 11th annual edition of the Tetra Pak Index focuses on the rise of online grocery and the unique opportunities it presents for the food and drink industry. This year’s report is full of insights into this new omnichannel world, and is based on research conducted in 5 countries with consumers, plus a deep dive shopper tracking study in US and UK, interviews with eRetailers in US, Europe and China and a global market segmentation study conducted by Euromonitor. Exclusively launched at Packaged, The 7th Global Summit in Amsterdam on 25th and 26th June.

The power of the internet is transforming grocery, just as it has revolutionised so many other retail sectors. Grocery offers particular challenges, but these are being addressed and overcome, and online continues to grow significantly faster than (and often at the expense of) other channels.

A Tetra Pak-commissioned study carried out in February 2018 interviewed leading e-retailers offering online groceries in North America, Europe and China. Its goal was to understand their sales channels, value chain and packaging needs, as well as to get their perspective on the needs of consumers in their geographies, both now and in 2025. In this section you will find out what key factors they are focused on, technology they are investing in, and our recommendations to food and drink brands to meet these needs.
