UPPER SADDLE RIVER, NJ (June 8, 2010) -The Food Institute will partner with Willard Bishop to host a webinar entitled The Future of Food Retailing - 2010. This informative review will be held on Tuesday, June 29, 2010 at 12pm EST.

Food retailers are facing issues that leave many unanswered questions in today's economic environment. This webinar will address many queries concerning consumer-shopping behavior, such as when, and if, consumers will be buying more store brands as the economy improves. What is happening with food prices and what can retailers do to capitalize on current trends? And, what opportunities exist for grocery retailers with the abundance of empty storefronts?

The information gathered in this webinar will provide retailers with a solid way to explore opportunities in 2010 and beyond. The panel will investigate Walmart's Marketside exiting the market and uncovering the consequences, intended and unintended, of their actions. As the end of the current economic recession appears to be on the horizon, this webinar will provide critical information on the future of the food-retailing landscape.

A knowledgeable panel has been assembled which includes Jim Hertel and Craig Rosenblum, both of Willard Bishop, who will provide their unique and unparalleled insights into the Future of Food Retailing. Mr. Hertel sums it up best when he states "These have been turbulent times for food retailers. Most, but not all, have made it through and they wonder "now what?" Will shoppers return to buying premium products or has "value-seeking" become part of their DNA?" The panel will dig into retailer strategies, identify specific actions that retailers are taking and point out the winners and losers in today's ever-changing market. Michael Sansolo, the webinar moderator, has an excellent perspective of today's diverse shopper and how their habits impact the food industry.

This meeting is designed for food and beverage retailers, but should also appeal to manufacturers, restaurants, suppliers, distributors, consultants to the industry and the trade press. A copy of the report will be available to all participants. Sign up for this webinar at http://www.foodinstitute.com/retailfuture2010.cfm
