Influences for your Grocerant are on the Street

Many CPG companies have been mining street and truck food offerings for ideas to develop their supermarket products

Charlie Taverner in his column on might just be offering supermarkets a path to Grocerant success. 

Street food, he writes, has always been an urban phenomenon. A set of historical essays, aptly titled Food Hawkers: Selling in the Streets from Antiquity to the Present has chapters on ancient Rome, Naples in the 1700s, and modern-day Bangkok. The topline is that until recently, rich and poor city folk alike bought most of their food, raw and cooked, from stalls or wanderers on the streets. And many CPG companies including Campbell’s and ConAgra have been mining these street and truck food offerings for ideas to develop their supermarket products.
