business news in context, analysis with attitude

CNBC reports that as traditional supermarket companies look to find ways to compete with Amazon, one of the approaches has been to seek out alliances with meal kit companies that have created their own level of disruption. One example - a report that Albertsons has considered an acquisition of Plated, a meal kit start-up business. (Neither Albertsons nor Plated has commented on the report.)

In addition, executives at two other meal kit companies - Green Chef and Home Chef - have said they are open to being acquired, with one described it as a “frenetic” marketplace.
