The grocery sector may be crowded, but it's probably safe to assume this would be the first concept of its kind in the U.S. Red Alert Politics reports that a former Trader Joe's executive is in the process of launching a newretail chainthat will sell foods that are just past their expiration date (so presumably they will still be safe enough to eat.) The executive, Doug Rauch, views this as a solution to the social challenge of food that goes to waste--apparently because there is nothing more appetizing than the old refrain "We were going to throw it out anyway."
According to Red Alert Politics:
"Rauch believes that Daily Table will end up competing with fast-food prices once he’s able to convince shoppers that a product just a day after its sell-date hasn’t necessarily gone bad."
Does anybody want to weigh in on this? Does this concept have legs?
