    With many offices only half-open and most children off school, more meals are being eaten at home. Spending on groceries in the week to June 27th was 13% higher than a year ago, according to IRI , a research firm. Because fewer people are commuting, mealtimes have changed.

    How FMCG brands can respond to change after COVID-19


    Jess Smith says: 'Pronouncing dramatic change has become a cliché for our times. But there is little doubt that the COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on consumer behaviour, especially when it comes to FMCG shopping.
