Report: Australasian Supermarket Review 2003
Sometimes its important to take your eyes away from the detail and have a look at the big picture. What’s happening in the industry? Where are your key customers going? What’s next?
When you look at it, the Australasian supermarket industry is one of the most concentrated in the world. Five groups – Woolworths, Coles, Metcash, FAL, and Foodstuffs – control 95% of supermarket retailing. Add in Pick’N Pay and Aldi and you’re at close to 98% by our calculations. The past five years have seen significant changes in the market, including the collapse of Franklins, the exit of Dairy Farm, and the arrival of Pick’N Pay and Aldi.
