26 Online Food Retail Innovations

From Health Food Subscriptions to Web Vegetable Deliveries

— September 18, 2014 — Business
These innovations in online food retail range from health food subscriptions to seasonal vegetable deliveries that are pre-ordered on a company's custom web platform.

While we are no stranger to fashion or tech-themed online shopping, the idea of ordering food online is often a more abstract and less trusted process for most.

These online food retail concepts change this notion and encourage individuals to give the process a chance. Whether you are interested in getting your hands on a monthly meat or chocolate subscription or have an interest in setting up a health food delivery plan, then you'll appreciate this diverse list of examples.

The web retail examples focus on anything from health food items to specific snacks that are designed to appeal to a niche market.
