Food tech start-up Impossible Foods, which makes the the plant-based Impossible Burger, said yesterday that it is supplementing its retail strategy - which has its products in supermarket chains that include Kroger, Albertsons, H-E-B, and Wegmans - with a new direct-to-consumer website that will ship to the continuous US states " with compostable, recyclable packaging, free shipping and two-day home delivery."
- KC's View:
Is it supplementing the 3,000 retail stores that carry its products? Or setting the stage for long-term disintermediation of traditional retail?
Just asking. Because I think we're going to see more of that in coming months, and this could be part of a larger trend.
