Cartons of groceries, stacked on palettes - in 1962, ALDI launched a discount grocery chain in Germany. Its recipe for success was offering a limited product range, sold in large quantities at low prices.
German grocery stores chain Lidl has said it will enter the US market earlier than previously envisaged. It's now planning to open its first stores there this summer. Its German archrival Aldi is already there.
China's largest e-commerce platform plans to take a major stake in one of the country's top food sellers, Sun Art Retail Group, as it's investing heavily in connecting its online and offline portfolio of businesses.
By buying Whole Foods, online retailer Amazon is betting on changing how we think about and shop for food. It is the e-commerce giant's first big step into traditional brick-and-mortar retail.
Just ahead of its launch on the US market, discount supermarket Lidl has announced its cooperation with one of Germany's best-known faces: supermodel Heidi Klum.
