Pamela and Greg are coming to you from the Blue Book Services headquarters in Carol Stream, IL, with this edition of The Produce Reporter Week in Review.
Cincinnati-based Kroger Co. had a big quarter when it comes to new initiatives, and fresh produce played a vital role for the company.
For the initial rollout, Kroger Delivery Kitchen Powered by ClusterTruck is launching in Carmel, Indiana – where Kroger and ClusterTruck are jointly opening a fourth kitchen – and Indianapolis and Columbus, Ohio. Additionally, King Soopers Delivery Kitchen Powered by ClusterTruck will serve customers in Denver.
Greg and Pamela discuss Walmart's Produce 2.0, Kroger's Infarm and Ocado plans, the ag labor bill's chances of being signed before the winter break, and Frieda Caplan's upcoming appearance on CBS Sunday Morning.
The living produce farms will launch this month at two of the 15 stores planned at QFC – a Kroger banner – at locations in Bellevue and Kirkland, Washington.
Kroger has partnered with Ocado to accelerate its ability to provide customers with anything, anytime, anywhere. In June, Kroger broke ground on its first CFC in Monroe, OH and has since announced additional locations in Florida, Georgia, Texas, and in the Mid-Atlantic region.
The Kroger Co. debuted today its new logo and brand transformation campaign, celebrating its love of all customers and associates, food-first culture and long history as America's favorite grocer.
The new two-level Kroger store features grab-and-go and ready-to-heat meals for lunch and dinner, in addition to fresh fruits and vegetables and a traditional grocery shopping experience.
It might surprise you— considering they’re one of the most prolific retailers in the U.S.—but I don’t get around to too many Kroger stores.
The Innovation Fund (the "Fund"), a program of The Kroger Co. Zero Hunger | Zero Waste Foundation (the "Foundation"), named its inaugural cohort of innovators, selected from nearly 400 applicants who submitted interest earlier this year during the first-ever open call.
