The BRC’s purpose is to make a positive difference to the retail industry and the customers it serves, today and in the future
The single biggest issue facing the retail industry today is the impact of covid-19. The pandemic has accelerated the transformation of the industry and the factors driving it – technology changing how people shop, increasing costs and slow growth in consumer spending.
Beyond Covid, we campaign on a range of issues to ensure the industry thrives through this period of transformation. These focus either on issues that are top of mind for retailers today, or on longer-term structural change programmes that require cross-industry collaboration to increase momentum and drive change.
