100 Innovative Food Delivery Services

From Zero-Emission Grocery Deliveries to Virtual Food Trucks

— July 19, 2018 — Autos
The category of innovative food delivery enjoys a broad range of sustainable cutting-edge approaches and ideas. From the high-tech development of autonomous vehicles for on-demand service to the extremely clever promotions that definitely spark consumer interest, the use of technology, mobile applications and environmentally sustainable practices are an integral component of the direct-to-consumer approach.

Innovative food delivery is not only about receiving an order as efficiently as possible. For example, companies such as Sainsbury focus on developing a system that is environmentally friendly and can provide individuals with restricted mobility with a way of receiving their weekly groceries. Other companies' innovative food delivery methods consist of office snack services and subscription-based organic meal kits that ensure the on-the-go individual enjoys a nutritious boost during the day.
