Coming Up In ESM Issue 4 2017
In Issue 4, ESM: European Supermarket Magazine will showcase some of the brightest new store openings and revamps in our annual Europe's Finest report, as well as look at the opportunities open to brands in the Olives & Olive Oils and Hot Drinks categories. We also look at how Greek businesses are exploring export opportunities to counter their own domestic challenges.
Greece: Country Focus
The Greek retail sector is a story of weakened consumer spend over the past number of years. However, out of every challenge, there are opportunities, and Greek food companies are investing in their businesses and developing innovative new product ranges that tap into consumer trends both in their domestic market and overseas. In Issue 4 2017, of ESM, we speak to some of the businesses leading the charge for innovation in Greek market, and assess the opportunities for growth.

Olives & Olive Oils
The benefits associated with the Mediterranean diet, coupled with quality production levels from producers around Europe, means that there has never been a better range of Olive and Olive Oil products available for consumers. ESM looks at the trends behind this growth, as well as what consumers are demanding from the categories. We also speak to some of the leading firms that are driving this 'olive Renaissance' across Europe.
Tea, Coffee and Hot Drinks
Driven by the major coffee chains, the global market for hot drinks remains dominated by coffee, however tea is set to make continued gains over the coming years, according to Euromonitor International. With this in mind, in the next issue of ESM, we examine the opportunities open to suppliers in the growing Hot Drinks industry, what trends are driving the market forward, as well as examine how retailers are capitalising on consumers increased taste for quality products.
Retail Technology – Information Technology
The retail industry has now entered the omni-channel age, necessitating greater investment in digital services. An essential support mechanism for retailers seeking to expand their omni-channel presence is an embrace of cloud computing and data analytics, which until recently has been seen more as 'nice to haves' by the retail sector, which has perhaps lacked the tools to sufficiently process 'big data'. In this report, we look at the IT options available to retailers, in an ever-changing retail landscape.
