Boardroom Volume 1

Strategies for success in food retail

Welcome to the first edition of Boardroom, an annual journal from Oliver Wyman and the Food Marketing Institute (FMI). This collection of articles offers unique and timely insights to help senior food retail executives shape strategies for success and improve performance throughout their organizations.

Every food retail executive faces significant challenges and opportunities in the market today. From consolidation sweeping the industry to hard discount formats entering new markets to the growth of online and omnichannel retail, the food retail landscape is changing rapidly. Companies that adapt the fastest – or, better yet, get ahead of the change curve – will be in the best position for long-term success.

In this inaugural edition of Boardroom, leading experts in our field offer original perspectives on a selection of the most critical issues executives must confront in boardrooms across the country and around the world.  

We are excited to share a six-part series (beginning March 21, 2016) of Q&As with various authors from papers included in the journal that will give an expanded perspective on the key topics. These expert Q&As provide additional insight for senior executives as they work with their management teams to take advantage of the opportunities that accompany every challenge.
