business news in context, analysis with attitude

Bloomberg reports that Albertsons-owned meal kit company Plated, which just weeks ago said that it would be pulling the offering from some of Albertsons’ banners, how is laying off about 10 percent of its headquarters staff in New York City.

According to the story, the cuts affect about 25 employees, and the company said it will allow it “to reduce expenses and better utilize the larger company’s operations structure already in place.”
KC's View:
I continue to believe that meal kits done right have a future.

Which then raises the question: Was Plated conceptually flawed, or was it the implementation that didn’t work?

Or, did it just not fit inside the Albertsons infrastructure?
