It's all a boon for consumers, who can select from an increasing array of options for fulfilling their grocery shopping needs. For specialty retailers and suppliers, how- ever, the evolving retail environment pres- ents both opportunities and challenges. Specialty foods provide a vehicle for retail- ers seeking to differentiate themselves from the growing presence of discounters, but pricing pressures and competition from private labels remain potential threats. Aldi and Lidl Expand Germany-based discounters Aldi and Lidl have been gobbling up market share from traditional food retailers in Europe for sev- eral years. Both chains rely heavily on private brands, no-frills merchandising, and a low- cost approach to store operations. In the States, Aldi, which has its U.S. headquarters in Batavia, Ill., now operates about 1,700 locations and has plans to open 800 more in the next five years. At the same time, it is rolling out a $1.6 billion remodel- ing effort focused on upgrading its perish- ables and improving merchandising overall. Aldi's renewed push comes as rival Lidl entered the U.S. market for the first time in June with stores in North Carolina, "Retailers can either choose to compete with Aldi and Lidl on price, or they can seek to differentiate themselves from these low-price retailers by shifting upmarket. We perceive the latter strategy as a better option because the premium/specialty segment has been growing at 10 percent year-over-year for the past decade." —Shelley Balanko, The Hartman Group 52 ❘ SPECIALTY FOOD MAGAZINE specialtyfood.com
