business news in context, analysis with attitude

Today's conversation is with Joe Blunda, who is working with Roche Bros. on a unique project - he actually has turned a large shipping container into a vertical farm that is providing greens to four of the retailer's stores.  And here's the kicker:  the vertical farm is located in the parking lot of a Roche Bros. store.  Talk about local!  (The technical term is Controlled Environment Agriculture.)
