T he pressure is on for supermarket chains. By 2023, online grocery-shopping sales are projected to range between $80 billion and $123 billion, according to statistics released by Steve Bishop of Brick Meets Click. According to the 2015 "State of the Specialty Food Industry," produced by the Specialty Food Association and Mintel, while supermar- kets remain the primary place consumers buy specialty foods, their market share is dwindling in favor of channels like natural food stores, which grew 27.7 percent versus supermarket's 18.6 percent growth from 2012 to 2014. And while grocery shopping used to be a one-stop affair, data show shop- pers now visit as many as five different stores to get their goods, further impacting sales at the traditional supermarket.
