Since 2016, Square Roots–the indoor urban farming startup founded by Kimbal Musk and entrepreneur Tobias Peggs–has been producing a steady output of fresh herbs and greens. In 10 shipping containers in a Brooklyn parking lot, the Square Roots team harvests the produce for local distribution to New York grocery stores, and educates young people interested in learning this new, tech-driven method of agriculture. Musk and Peggs aren’t the only entrepreneurs growing greens indoors and hydroponically: AeroFarms and Bowery, both based in New Jersey, are just a two of the many other companies using similar tactics to grow kale and basil. It’s an increasingly popular idea: Bowery and AeroFarms have raised $118 and $138 million, respectively.

A number of things come to mind when one thinks of Texas: cowboy hats, Tex-Mex food, and wide open spaces are some of them. What should also be on that list is a century-old grocery store that many Texans swear by: H-E-B. It’s many a Texan’s one-stop shop for food, household items, and a slew of other necessities. It also happens to be the fourth best grocery store in the US thanks to its strong combination of market share, sales growth, sales efficiency, and emotional connection with its shopper base, according to a recent report by data company Dunnhumby. That’s just a sliver of the national attention that H-E-B has garnered in its years of operations.

We visited a location in Hutto, Texas, a town north of Austin. It’s one of only 400 H-E-B … [Read more...] about We went to one of the best grocery stores in the US that only has locations in Texas and Northern Mexico and saw why it has such a cult following
If you’re lactose-intolerant, gluten-free, or one of more than 50 million Americans who suffer from allergies, good news: Grocery shopping might just become a lot less complicated thanks to a new smartphone app that makes filtering out prohibited foods as simple as a cashier scan. The app, created by Swiss barcode scanning platform Scandit, lets shoppers personalize their dietary preferences, then simply nix triggering products on participating store shelves with the help of augmented reality filters. It will include various categories such as lactose- or nut-free. Scandit hopes a portion U.S grocery stores will roll out the capability within six to nine months, reports USA Today. “Standing in front of shelves filled with hundreds of items can be an intimidating experience,” Scandit CEO Samuel Mueller told the newspaper. “Instead of picking the best item, many shoppers just give up and pick the most familiar one. (Augmented reality) filtering … [Read more...] about This shopping app will help food allergy sufferers avoid triggers in grocery stores
Giant Food Stores announced on Monday it will be introducing a robot called Marty to its 172 stores in the United States. Marty is a googly-eyed robot that alerts store staff of potential hazards, like spills. It’s the largest rollout of robots in a fleet of retail stores to happen so far. Soon, “cleanup on aisle seven” could have a more robotic tinge to it. Giant Food Stores announced on Monday it will be introducing a robot called Marty to its 172 stores in the United States. Marty’s primary purpose is to roam around the store autonomously, pointing out hazards for store staff to clean up. It announces its findings through the store PA system and pages employees. But Marty likes to have fun. “Instead of just being a 6’3″ robot, we actually made it look a bit more like a human. So, you see the googly eyes,” Nick Bertram, president of Giant, said during a panel at the National Retail Federation’s annual Big Show conference. … [Read more...] about A googly-eyed robot is coming to 172 grocery stores across America
