key findings
Key Findings

Price continues to be the key driver of choice of the main grocery shop, followed by convenience – both increasing in importance since the previous wave.

The number of grocery shoppers that have changed what they buy or where they shop since the start of the year has fallen back to just under 1 in 2.

Cutting back on treats remains the number one change to the grocery shop since the start of the year although this has fallen back slightly since Nov/Dec 2009. Those responsible for the main grocery shop are now more likely to be spreading their shopping over different stores in order to get the best value – up 12% from the previous wave.

4 in 5 consumers responsible for the main grocery shop would prefer to see supermarkets offering more long term lower prices as opposed to regular promotions and special offers.

7 in 10 Irish consumers claim to be aware of the prices of everyday goods such as bread, milk and a litre of petrol.

As with the previous wave, 7 in 10 Irish consumers claim to be aware of the prices of everyday goods such as bread, milk and a litre of petrol. Consistently so; the majority of those responsible for the main grocery shop within the household are more likely to be aware (86%) – however this has fallen back slightly since the previous wave.
