retail news in context, analysis with attitude

The New York Times has a story about how Boulder, Colorado, "perhaps best known for craft beer and bicycles," is beginning to be known "as the place where new companies are challenging the old guard in the food business."

Not only are companies moving there, but along with them "the infrastructure such companies need — brokers, distributors, contract manufacturers ... The second-largest natural foods distributor, KeHE, opened an office here in 2013, and the Rodale Institute, a nonprofit research group devoted to organic farming, is opening a satellite office here."

Interesting piece, and you can read it here.
