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 Covid-19 pandemic accelerated the transformation of the retail industry and the factors driving it – technology changing how people shop, increasing costs and slow growth in consumer spending.
As the industry emerges from the pandemic and focuses on recovery and investing in the future, retailers are dealing with a new set of challenges arising from cost inflation and their customers grappling with the increased cost of living.
We campaign on these and other 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.
