Like many others, I’ve started purchasing more of my groceries online. Who doesn’t love the convenience! But if I do get anything online, it’s almost always a packaged item.

I still go to the grocery store for “fresh” foods, like bakery goods, deli, meat, produce and seafood. Interesting stat from the Nielsen Company: online grocery shoppers spend 1.5% more in-store on fresh food than the average consumer does.

According to Nielsen, deli and produce departments provide the highest sales of “fresh food” items in stores. In fact, three-fourths of deli sales come from items packaged by deli clerks, giving customers a more authentic, ready-made feel.

Meanwhile, online sales of health and beauty care items and dairy products are rising.

As you can see, sales of fresh food continues to increase in stores.
