GREAT FOR GRAB 'N GO
" We also actively ask for feedback after every order, " he said. " The
key is building trust and consistency, so our customers know that the
employees selecting their fresh items are choosing top-quality product
every time. "
Hy-Vee's retail foodservice offerings have been among the
convenience items that have seen the biggest growth in recent years,
particularly after the onset of COVID, Stewart said.
The retailer's Mealtime To Go service is in an easy-to-use app and
website format allowing customers to choose their Hy-Vee favorites for
delivery, curbside pickup or instore pickup. Options include breakfast,
Wahlburgers favorites, sandwiches, HyChi, Nori Sushi, Mia Italian
options, desserts, a kids' menu and more.
Sales of Hy-Vee's Mealtime heat-and-eat meals are also up.
COVID has accelerated the growth not only of convenience items but
bakerly, a manufacturer of French-inspired
brioche and snack products, is bringing one of
its newest products to Whole Foods Markets.
Whole Foods will carry bakerly's new French
" pancakes to-go " at 496 of its stores throughout
the country. Each individually wrapped pancake
is made with a hint of sweetness. bakerly's
French pancakes to-go provide families a quick
snack option made from authentic French
recipes using high-quality ingredients.
also of health-focused foods, Stewart said. Combining those two needs
in products and services will continue to be a major priority going
forward.
" There is increasing interest in healthy take-home items that fit
time and budget constraints, " Stewart said. " Offering grab-and-go
pre-packaged salads, bowls and other heathy prepared foods is both a
short-term fix in a pandemic and a long-term solution to the desire for
health and convenience. "
All of Hy-Vee's fresh departments are experiencing renaissances
when it comes to convenience, but Stewart said the most innovation
is taking place in meat, seafood, produce and retail foodservice. (The
instore bakery, by nature of its product roster, has always been a strong
performer in convenience options).
Items that currently stand out include value-added meats that can be
prepared easily; ShortCuts pre-cut, pre-washed vegetables; and items
that can be microwaved.
A fresh produce angle
COVID definitely accelerated demand for convenience items in the fresh
produce departments of Tulsa, Okla.-based Reasor's Foods stores, said
JJ Sanders, the retailer's produce director.
" We saw these changes coming, they're just here sooner than we
expected, " Sanders said. " Both grab-and-go and value-added are
focuses for us. "
Reasor's is seeing double-digit growth in its cut fruit/veg and valueadded
sales, he said. One standout performer is a local brand, Scissor
Tail Farms Salads, which highlights its local advantage with the tagline,
" Thousands of Miles Fresher. "
Any way that produce and other fresh departments can position
products as part of a meal solution is another guaranteed winner,
he added.

comfortable buying fresh fruits and vegetables online, Sanders said. And
a more intense focus on health is also driving growth.
With online sales, though, it's crucial that suppliers and retailers
deliver information that shoppers may have formerly gleaned instore,
either from packaging, signage or a produce clerk.
" Telling the story is more important than ever, " Sanders said. " Larry
Reasor always said, 'Sell the customers items they want to buy, not what
we want to sell them.' So right now we are listening. "
