Walmart starts selling meal kits

Walmart starts selling meal kits

Walmart is set to rollout new meal kits to more than 2,000 stores in 2018.

Although several other retailers have tried the meal kit option, a lot of them haven't succeeded in this business venture.

The meals were developed and tested in the retailer's Culinary and Innovation Center and are made and assembled fresh in-store daily. The company says it will start selling prepared "meal-kits" at stores across the country. Amazon also unveiled in February it will start delivering groceries from Whole Foods through its two-hour Prime Now delivery service. Walmart shares are down 0.4% in premarket trading, but up 26.8% for the past year. Both companies are capitalizing on the success of startups like subscription service Blue Apron, though both AmazonFresh and Walmart sell their boxes without a required long-term commitment.

The Senate had initially sought a 4 percent raise, balking at a 5 percent hike approved by the House of Delegates. Justice wrote on Twitter that he "stood rock solid" on a 5 percent raise for teachers in the state.

Some meal kits are created to be used with rotisserie chickens - like Thai curry chicken and chicken fried rice - and some can be heated up and on the table in less than 15 minutes: pot roast, cheesy ravioli bake and chicken marsala.

Anyone who wants put something in the oven consider chicken Alfredo, cheesy ravioli bake, meatloaf, spaghetti and meatballs, chicken Parmesan, pulled beef, chicken Marsala, curry chicken, pot roast or chicken enchiladas, Walmart suggests.

Walmart said its food can be ordered online at lunchtime and picked up in the deli section of its stores at dinner time.
