Zero-Waste Grocer

New grocery retailers entice consumers with zero-waste business models

Implications - As vested grocery brands work to redesign business models in order to cut back on food waste, many new zero-waste retailers have begun to enter the market. Facing less barriers to innovation, such emerging supermarket concepts succeed in offering consumers the customization they desire with an immediacy that is difficult for established brands to deliver. In addition to highlighting the desire to support sustainable brands, this shift speaks to the evolving nature of the relationship between retailers and consumers to include more collaboration.
Workshop Question — How can you better satisfy the consumer desire for instant gratification, without sacrificing quality?
