Brazil: online grocery shopping during the COVID-19 outbreak 2020

Between March 19 and 25, 2020, the number of new online grocery shoppers in Brazil nearly doubled, increasing by 96 percent compared to the week before. The growth was linked to the spread of COVID-19 in the South American country. Furthermore, the product category whose online sales most increased during the same period was the basic market basket, a series of alimentary items defined by Brazilian law including meat, vegetables, flour, and coffee, among other products.
