The latest release from Kantar, tracking the performance of GB grocery retail over the 12 weeks to 18 April 2021, shows that sector growth slowed to 5.7%, as sales met the tougher comparatives of the early pandemic in 2020 and non-essential retail and the out-of-home sectors began to open from 12 April, beginning the resumption of a more normal competitive retail landscape.  However, Kantar indicates that over the most recent four weeks growth had again picked up to 6.5%.
