Retrofuturism
Retrofuturism is a great word. It combines the blend of old-fashioned ‘retro’ style, with the future anticipation of technology.

When you’re next in your local supermarket look around. Look at the people strolling up and down the aisles. Are they happy? Are they enjoying their shopping experience? Or are they unhappy?

Superpremium
Superpremiumisation. Once you get over how to say it, you will start to see it all through the supermarket. It is the trend to very highly-priced products appearing where reasonably priced staples have traditionally dominated. In the humble milk category, you can buy a litre of Countdown milk for $2.35, or a litre of Lewis

Sensory
Stop, and think about the entrance to your local supermarket for a moment. What do you see? Are you in the fresh produce department? Do you see large mounds of brightly coloured fruit?

I can tell you for sure that 2-day old pizza dough is better than 1-day old, which is way better than fresh dough. It’s definitely crispier, tastier and more ‘pizzarey’. I can’t speak for 3-day old, but 2-day is the bomb according to Tony, my pizza coach at Italian grocery specialist La Bella Italia. This
