Industry Expertise

"Today, convenience is as highly valued as ever, but it’s taking on a new form.  Consumers, who now desire natural foods, are shifting from convenient food to convenient preparation and procurement. This contributes to the growth in grocery e-commerce and restaurant delivery.  In addition, American kitchens will be home to a variety of appliances and gadgets to facilitate cooking at home."
