About This Video Series
National food trends analyst Phil Lempert has forged a strategic partnership with the Chicago-based Retail & Hospitality Hub (“The Hub”) to provide content through various platforms.
Lempert is the founder of SupermarketGuru.com, a leading online resource for food safety, products, trends and shopping tips that attracts more than nine million visitors annually. As part of its featured content, Retail & Hospitality Hub will bring you “The Lempert Report,” a video series that features “The Supermarket Guru” himself commenting on issues affecting food and food retailing. The videos will appear Monday through Thursday on the Retail & Hospitality Hub and Tuesday through Friday via The Hub’s daily e-newsletter, “Retail Best Practices.”
In this video of “The Lempert Report,” Lempert talks West Sacramento, Calif.-based Raley’s, a grocery retailer that impresses him on many levels, including its program to reduce food waste. Raley’s has implemented a software-driven program to reduce food waste that also benefits its customers with low prices. It’s a solution that other grocers should explore, Lempert says.
