Welcome to Food Week September 12. A short week with the holiday but a lot of stuff on innovations. New antioxidant tomato, a huge new vertical farm, White Castle rolling out burger bites and a new Guinness NA. Innovations in self checkout aren’t really working as planned. And the inventor of $2 Chuck has gone to the big wine box in the sky. Enjoy!
Hurricane Kay messed up produce shipments. Even higher prices on the way for items coming from Mexico and Central America
EDITORIAL: Costco’s self checkout is an unpleasant experience. The large sizes make then hard to scan, the registers are too close together and requires help from employees anyway. I love Costco but I surely hope that don’t significantly reduce regular registers.

White Castle rolls out mini-burger bites. Because, really, who can eat a whole slider?
