Have you ever ordered your weekly groceries online, or had a meal kit delivered to your door? How we shop, cook and eat is changing with the growing popularity of online grocery stores, ready-made dinners, and healthier, fresh foods. These trends are being driven in large part by millennials who are less likely to shop in traditional supermarkets and to cook at home.
