retail news in context, analysis with attitude

I’m traveling this week to Barcelona, where I am attending and presenting a new video at the annual CIES Food Safety Conference. There shouldn’t be much interruption to service here at MorningNewsBeat…but Internet access sometimes being not as reliable as one would always like, you never know. So I appreciate your patience if the site gets posted at odd times during the next couple of days.

BTW…there is an upside to my travels. Michael Sansolo has agreed to contribute an extra Sansolo Speaks column this week, and “Supermarket Guru” Phil Lempert is writing a guest column that will run on Thursday. So you have something else to look forward to…
