WHY FOOD COULD BE THE BEST MEDICINE OF ALL | Time
Gary’s Take: Food is absolutely the new medicine as a growing number of consumers rebel against the ever-exploding costs of healthcare and prescription drugs, and lose faith in the traditional medical profession. Consumers are increasingly looking elsewhere - their local supermarket? - for ways to improve their wellbeing. Over two thousand years ago Hippocrates called out “Let food be thy medicine and medicine by thy food”. Today, we are seeing AI and big data converging to transform the information available to the shopper to help guide the individual to foods actually beneficial to their wellbeing. Cutting edge nutrition science applied to nutritionally sensitive chronic health conditions, combined with expanded product nutrition data and sophisticated personalization engines, is poised to transform health & wellness and, more so, the greater food industry.
NEVER MIND THE RETAIL APOCALYPSE. WE'RE STILL IN THE MIDDLE OF THE POST-RECESSION STORM | Winsight Grocery Business
Gary’s Take: The Great Recession (2007-2009) was a decade ago - a lifetime in terms of the changes in consumer behavior technology has wrought and in how retailers go to market. Rather than pining for 'pre-recession' shopper behavior, retailers would be far better served to focus on the reality of today and the demands of tomorrow. Consumers today are different and shop differently than ever before in history, in large part because of technology enabling new ways to discover and learn about products and services and new ways to procure them. With so many retailers unprepared to do battle with Amazon, and ill-prepared to compete with the innovation being pursued by Walmart and Kroger, there is no time to focus on the past. Far too many retailers lack the data and capabilities needed to provide contextual relevancy to their shoppers and are slow to pursue automation that is driving a growing productivity gap. Time thinking about the 'good old days' may feel nice but won't deliver tomorrow's success.
WHY DOES LOYALTY PROGRAM ROI REMAIN SO MURKY | RetailWire
Sterling’s Take: Anything that stays the same too long becomes stagnant, and that’s exactly what happens with a lot of loyalty programs. They can become expected, boring and less impactful over time if they’re not continually kept alive and exciting.The right metrics (basket sizes, lifetime value, customer profitability) give us an opportunity to see what’s really going on, but also to see and create new value for our customers.
KROGER LAUNCHES ACCELERATOR FUND | RetailWire
Sterling’s Take: I like how this gives Kroger more insight and participation in the brand world. They have the data and insight they need from the most important place: the point of purchase. As a startup brand, it’s a relationship that’d be hard to turn down, but might cause conflict selling into other retailers. The relationship between retailers and brands is already complex and this adds another piece to the puzzle.
WHEN THE GOING GETS TOUGH, THE TOUGH GET TRANSPARENT | RetailWire
Sterling’s Take: It’s always best to tell the truth in the long run. Although I don’t know how Rothy’s was so close to the launch before realizing quality was an issue, growing pains are natural. Consumers are ready, willing and understanding of things that don’t go as planned as long as we’re open and honest (and have a plan to make it better).

From the trillions of patterns that exist within your POS sales data sets, CB4’s patented solution uncovers customer purchasing patterns that detect and capture consumer demand.
The patterns themselves are the result of myriad external and internal conditions that impact consumer preferences at each store location. These conditions could be related to demographics, climate, a promotion (either your own or a competitor’s) and many others, few of which a retailer has access to.
When a store is part of a purchasing pattern that indicates a high local demand for a specific product, but the product’s actual sales at that store does not meet the expected potential -- an opportunity is uncovered.
CB4’s solution identifies whether the opportunity could be captured by fixing an operational execution issue within the store, or by making a better-informed merchandising decision.
The solution is not focused on understanding which conditions created these purchasing patterns, but rather on extracting the patterns themselves and applying them to detect unmet demand. In other words, the software analyzes the sales data to uncover lost or hidden sales opportunities.
