Looking at this list of five items, it appears that buyers are looking for healthier options. Whether it is a last minute dinner option, like rotisserie chicken, or fruit, these choices seem to be family friendly. What household doesn’t have at least a couple of bananas on the counter?
With the top three ordered items being fruits, it shows that people can, and will, eat healthy when presented with that option. The convenience of having groceries delivered means that processed, mass produced foods don’t have to be the only option. When people have access to fresh fruits and vegetables, they will take advantage of it.
One curious items comes from this list. Often consumers want to see, touch and feel produce. Consumers want to ensure that the food is fresh, bruise free and looks good. With produce being a top choice for delivery, consumers must feel that Sam’s produce is high quality and they trust the store to carefully choose their food.
Grocery delivery is growing more and more. Consumers want convenience for their busy lives. As long as quality is maintained this shopping method will continue.
