'Gilets Jaunes' Protests Impact French Retailer Performance: Kantar Worldpanel

The gilets jaunes (yellow-vests) protests in France impacted French retailer performance in the latest four-week period, according to Kantar Worldpanel, with the FMCG sector growing by 0.7% – around half the 52-week growth rate of 1.3%.

The hypermarket sector saw a 62-basis-point decline in the P12 period (against a full-year average decline of 34 basis points), however, the rest of the sector held up relatively well, with supermarkets up four basis points, convenience seeing a two-basis-point decline, discounters up 21 basis points, and online up 39 basis points.

The P12 period runs from 29 October to 25 November.
