Walmart is launching its own meal kits in some stores

They'll be available in over 2,000 stores by the end of 2018, and you'll have the option of grabbing them through the company's Online Grocery Pickup service. Amazon rolled out its own branded meal kits previous year, and has introduced them in its Amazon Go store in Seattle.

Last May, Amazon opened two test locations in Seattle that allow Amazon Prime subscribers to place a grocery order online and then pick it up at a drive-through window.

Walmart's kits will cost between $8 and $15, and range from one-step and-you're-done offerings like post roast to more flexible options that are pre-portioned kits like steak Dijon.

The meal push for Walmart may yield quite a lot from it because nearly all retail chains have the deli departments however only a sizeable number of shoppers would opt to visit the sections despite a continued supply for the same.

Several companies already offer meal kits, both online and in stores. Thai curry chicken and chicken fried rice can be made with the rotisserie chicken.




Responding to Amazon's launch of Whole Foods grocery delivery through Amazon Prime Now, the largest U.S. reatiler Walmart has announced its plans to provide ready to eat meal kits priced between $8 nd $15 at, starting with 250 ourlets today.

Walmart has also developed a better means of tracking the freshness for their fruits and vegetables as they are fetched from farms to its stores.

Walmart is rolling out meal kits.

The meal-kit industry has been expanding rapidly in recent years and is on track to grow to between $3 billion and $5 billion over the next 10 years.

"This is mostly a "me too" move to keep up with other retailers", Livingston said in an email.
