RDBA WEBINAR: Appealing to the Health-Focused Online Shopper: E-commerce Insights and New Data from USA Pears

This webinar was on January 27, 2022

Over the past two years, online grocery sales have surged, jumping as high as 300% early in the pandemic, compared to the previous year.* What was once done out of necessity has become a habit for many shoppers that is expected to continue into the future. While the shift to online shopping created initial challenges, it has also presented opportunities for commodities like USA Pears and retail dietitians to help guide shoppers to nutritious food options. In this webinar, you’ll hear from two professional in retail dietetics, who have spearheaded their organizations’ growing e-commerce programs. They’ll share new data from USA Pears about online pear shoppers’ behaviors as well as insights from their own programs, best practices and actionable tips, including budget-friendly shoppable recipes, seasonal cross-promotions and more. Join us for a robust conversation about how e-commerce can be leveraged to increase produce consumption. (*FMI 2020 )
