While mealtime is always a challenge for consumers, it’s also been a challenge — and an opportunity — for retailers. The question is, how can grocers best meet the needs of hungry shoppers? Grab-and-go meals? Dine-in restaurant service? Meal kits? And what about meeting the increasing health and wellness needs of customers?
Our third annual Culinary Catalysts recognizes four retailers whose successes in the kitchen have touched on all those areas and more. From Erewhon Market’s organic cafés to healthy meals to go from Raley’s and a new line of regionally inspired meal kits from New Seasons Market, innovative retailers are making the right moves to satisfy hungry customers. And in an ever-changing menu of options from retailers, the classics still hold — as evidenced by a traditional favorite item from Giant Eagle.
