‘The Lempert Report’: Chipotle Serving Up More Than Burritos
About This Video Series
“The Lempert Report” is a video series that features national food trends analyst Phil Lempert, also known as the “Supermarket Guru.” The videos appear Monday through Thursday on the Retail & Hospitality Hub and Tuesday through Friday via The Hub’s daily e-newsletter, “Retail Best Practices.” In the videos, Lempert comments on various issues affecting food and food retailing.
In this video of “The Lempert Report,” Lempert talks about Chipotle’s new Aluminaries Project, the company’s third accelerator program to support ventures that are building sustainable, equitable, and efficient food systems. What’s special about this project is that it includes guitarist/singer/songwriter Jason Mraz as a mentor. Mraz is a longtime avocado supplier to Chipotle.
