Consumers have grown accustomed to eating and cooking more meals at home due to the pandemic and will continue this behavior well into 2021, said Kroger CEO Rodney McMullen during the company’s Q2 2020 earnings call.

Total company sales were $30.5bn in the second quarter this year, compared to $28.2bn for the same period last year, according to the company’s Q2 2020 earnings results. Excluding fuel, sales grew 13.9%.

“While the full economic impact of COVID-19 is not yet understood, our data shows that during the periods of lower economic activity, we see a structural shift from food consumed away from home to food consumed at home,” said McMullen during the company’s Q2 2020 earnings call.
