Food and grocery sector becomes new core of retail property investment, says Savills

According to Savills, the food sector is becoming the new core in retail property investment. Last year, for the first time, investments in supermarkets, hypermarkets and food discount stores accounted for a record 21 per cent of total European retail activity, up from a five-year average of 7 per cent. Despite the decline of retail sales growth in 2020 (from 3.9 per cent in 2019 to 1.7 per cent in 2020), food and grocery sales increased by 7.5 per cent, and are expected to continue to rise by 2.2 per cent per annum over the next five years.
