The modern trend toward preparing and enjoying tastier, healthier and more sustainable foods continues, and it goes by many names. The fresh food movement. Slow food. Farm to table. These and many others are all delayed reactions to decades of fast and prepared foods and their effects on our culture, obesity, and our overall health. By and large, all these foodie movements have something in common. They reject unhealthy ingredients, additives, excess calories, and dubious nutritional value of prepared foods, not to mention lackluster taste, in favor of a flavorful and often (but not always) healthier dining experience—even if it costs more and takes longer to prepare.
Over the past 3 months, there have been over 6,000 tons of beef recalled due to E. Coli and Salmonella contamination. For grocers, product recalls can cost precious time, money, and resources. TRUNO provides a meat grind management solution that can pinpoint recalled items and allow the grocer to act quickly to prevent the spread and consumption of contaminated products.
Not so many years ago, grocery shopping used to be a more personal experience. Families shopped at the same store every time, usually on Sundays, to buy food and supplies for the week. It was quite common—and even expected—for shoppers to build relationships with store employees. The butcher knew customers’ names and what cuts their families preferred. And the cashier greeted them with a smile and asked them how their day was going.
