What is the future of grocery retail?
In the world of grocery retail, the landscape has for a long time remained largely immune to disruption. However, the recent developments of new technologies, the rise of e-commerce and ever-changing consumer behaviors are disrupting the future of the physical grocery store.

As the development of emerging technologies like IoT, AR&VR, Food-tech and Big Data grows, we want your ideas on how these tech trends, alongside consumer expectations will shape the future of the grocery supermarket.
