Aidan Connolly was speaking at the ASA conference in Kilkenny on Friday and said from talking to people over the last number of years this is the “big thing” he has noticed. The way consumers engage with food is changing.

“It looks as though the large box supermarket system that we’ve seen is going to disappear,” said Connolly. “In particular, when you talk to millenials, it strikes me that they see time walking around supermarkets picking up and buying food as wasted. They’d much prefer to order it online and have it delivered to their house. They see it as time saving.”
