Strategic management concepts in US food retailing and wholesaling are focused on. First, an overview of US food retailing and distribution is given. Second, an analysis of the changing American consumer is provided: growing emphasis on health and environmental concerns; changing demographics and how they affect shopping habits; why shoppers pick a particular food store. And, finally, what progressive retailers are doing to attract the shoppers of today and tomorrow is discussed to provide a glimpse of the supermarket of the future.
