How can supermarkets grow meal sales?

What more can supermarkets do to grow meal sales and take share from restaurants and other competitors? Nicola Farinetti, CEO, Eataly USA, says education is key. “The more you learn, the more you buy. The more people understand how to make fresh pasta, the more they are going to buy fresh pasta in the supermarket, and not only in the restaurants.”

Also answering this question for SN’s five-part FMI Connect 2015 video series are Randy Edeker, FMI Connect chairman, and president, chairman and CEO of Hy-Vee; Maria Brous, director of media and community relations, Publix Super Markets; Natalie Menza, manager of health and wellness, Wakefern Food Corp.; and Neil Kudrinko, president and CEO, Kudrinko’s.
