About us

The path to growth goes through knowledge

At Retail Institute Scandinavia we are passionate about retail and consumer behavior which has made us the leading experts within the field. We create value for our members and customers by helping them to growth through knowledge, insights and experience.

Through data collection, analysis, monitoring and inspiration from abroad – a combination of local knowledge and a global outlook – we keep our members constantly updated on the latest trends and tendencies within retail and consumer behavior. With a membership of Retail Institute Scandinavia, professional players in the grocery and retail industry get a partner with thorough knowledge regarding the challenges on the global retail scene.

The consumers’ constant consumption and behavior changes require an equally high innovation level in the retail sector and among the industry’s suppliers. Todays’ customers demand more news, inspiration, convenience, fair prices and new experiences. But what does this mean for retailers, and what consequences do phenomena such as e-commerce and digitization have for the physical store? How do you ensure a growing foot fall, future-proof your business and transform buzzwords as omnichannel and e-influence into understanding and action? Our immersion in the industry, insights, knowledge and understanding of the grocery and retail industry provides our clients with an overview of the industry and the consumers, whose behavior and habits can be hard to decipher.
