The Future of the Grocery Store

At the Food Forward summit in Washington DC last week, Food Dive sat down with two food futurists to discuss what's in store for the future of grocery shopping and what trends are already starting to arise. 
 
Some predictions: people will take a more active role in what they eat, have more opportunities to interact and know more about how food impacts their bodies. So how does the place we shop respond to these changing goals?

Cheers,
The WSCSA Core Committee
