These sustainable grocery concepts range from small batch supermarkets to local produce apps. Some notable examples include an in-store smoothie bar that is located in Stockholm. In addition to offering healthy beverages, this kiosk uses fruit that would otherwise be discarded and ultimately puts an end to food waste.

Additionally, Boston's discount boutique grocer, Daily Table aims to offer premium products to low-income families. In addition to its locally sourced produce, the grocer offers a myriad of surplus products that are budget-friendly without sacrificing quality.

Furthermore, sustainable grocery concepts like elegant food rescue eateries and large-scale vertical farms aim to reduce food waste in urban environments. Whether sourcing left-over food from grocery stores or encouraging urban farming practices, these examples showcase the evolving attitudes of modern consumers.
