Nothing Short of a Revolution Happening in the Food Marketplace

There is nothing short of a revolution happening in the food marketplace today and it is not a quiet one, says Walter Robb, the former co-CEO of Whole Foods. “It is disrupting things left and right, all the way up the value chain back into the farmer’s field,” says Robb.

Walter Robb, former co-CEO of Whole Foods, discusses the revolution happening in the food marketplace in an interview on CNBC:

Nothing Short of a Revolution Happening in the Food Marketplace

There is nothing short of a revolution happening in the food marketplace today and it is not a quiet one. It is disrupting things left and right, all the way up the value chain back into the farmer’s field. For me, to see these (organic) brands and to see it show up at the Super Bowl, the biggest media stage of the world, is kind of an exciting thing.

Some 75 percent of the food we eat is from 12 plants. Somebody’s woken up to that realizing, wow, there’s a whole lot of stuff that we can create from stuff we don’t even know yet. The Natural Food Expo, which is the next month in LA, 85,000 people are going to that show. This is where the energy and the edge of the food industry is at right now.

We’ve broken into this area now where there’s an amazing amount of innovation with young companies and entrepreneurs. This is where the growing edge of the food industry is now. It’s not just natural and organic but it’s this innovation around new foods and new food types.

Amazing Amount of Innovation With Entrepreneurs

You have to build the tools to really understand your customer personally. I think it’s pretty exciting to see what’s happening. On the physical side, Walmart is doing a lot of things, Kroger is doing a lot of things, and Whole Foods is doing a lot of things to try to integrate digital and physical retail in a way that gives the customer a very rich experience.

I do think in terms of the food service delivery, Grubhub has had phenomenal growth. What’s happened is the world has woken up to how exciting food is again. We kind of went along after World War two for a number of years with this kind of dull drum of production, just regular stuff with the major CPG brands.

If you get a $ 5 latte and it’s probably a $ 5 delivery charge at what point does the customers say that’s a great value problem? I don’t know, but I think we’re going to find out. I do think this idea that the customer wants the convenience is here to stay and that they’re used to having that option. In some cases, they will choose it. Where that line is it’s too early to say exactly where they’ll say, that’s too expensive or that’s not a good deal.

Check Out What’s Happening at Entreproducer

I launched Entreproducer one year ago (to the day) as a multimedia email newsletter.

My idea was to — very publicly — lay out the experiences I’ve had running several successful online businesses, profile the entrepreneurs and companies that are pushing digital content innovation, and take a shot at sharing with where I think independent digital media is going.

After doing a bunch of writing over there (and taking a break to get some work done), Robert Bruce and I shifted into audio mode. We missed doing the Internet Marketing for Smart People Radio Show, but we also felt it was time for a slightly different angle on the business of content marketing and DIY digital media.

With that, I want to welcome you back to Entreproducer.com. Here’s a few quick samples of our latest episodes, and I hope you’ll join us going forward.

The latest from Entreproducer:

Lots of amazing lessons here for online entrepreneurs.

Native Advertising: What Does it Mean for Content Producers?

Just a few days into 2013, and we already had a new buzzword that’s burning up the Interwebs. It’s called native advertising, and it just may signal the cure for why online advertising models have sucked so far.

The Resurgence and Rebranding of Affiliate Marketing

It seems that a huge segment of the online publishing industry that had been previously vilified by “respectable” online “journalists” (use of quotation marks intentional and appropriate) is also finally being seen as another savior of online content. Welcome back, affiliate marketing.
