Welcome to Blue Ananta!

Blue Ananta is unique in the convenience retail space. It is lean with Scott Annan at the helm who brings challenge, insight and knowledge from the world of convenience retailing. His network extends around the world which he can use ‘to join the dots’.

Channel Blurring

Retail channels have blurred with convenience, café, discount, drug, grocery and quick food retailers competing for the same pound.

Retail Technology

Customer data & insight is the new oil. Ultimate convenience is driven by ‘1:1’ technology as pioneered by Amazon, Google, PayPal, Tesco & Uber.

Health & Wellness

Health & Wellness is not simply about exercise, eating ‘better’ or dieting. Consumers want healthier choices; natural food, clean ingredients and a transparent supply chain.

Thought Leadership

Great retailers have clear strategies and Customer Value Propositions that tie target customers to their shopping missions.

The Culture of Now

We expect everything ’now’, as we want it. Amazon is the ultimate Convenience retailer.

Generations: the grey & millennial pounds

Greys spend more than Millennials. Millennials are more focused on healthier choices and prefer information from new media rather than advertising.
