Märt Leesment

In this article, a brief overview of the retail sale of foodstuffs is given. The topic is approached from two perspectives: demand and supply. Retail sale of foodstuffs brings together two parties – the trader and the consumer, and it is difficult to consider one more important than the other. Therefore, in this article, the focus is on both of them. Grocery stores are important, or in fact vital, as in the society today, the share of food obtained from outside trade is quite marginal.
