"Food for thought"



"Our customers no longer find it acceptable to order something today and have them delivered in two or three days' time. Our world has to adapt to that very broad range of customer demands."

"Food for thought"



"Our technological devices, media habits and attentionspan may have changed, but our fundamental nature has not. (...) The headlines proclaim that advertising is dead; the future is interactive, digital,mobile, and social. These days, the cool kids are insight planners, communication planners, channel planners, creative planners, strategic planners, brand planners and, in exceptionally cool cases, brand anthropologists or brand catalysts. Call me a Luddite, but I still believe that we're in the business of communicating with people."
- Jon Steel, WPP

"The supermarket must die"



"Thanks to the smartphone-addicted consumer, GPS, apps, and the Internet, a new breed of startup is building systems that make it easier for producers to know just how much to produce, for shoppers to order just what they want, and for food to get from one to the other faster and with fewer stops in between."

"We are outsourcing more and more of our physical and psychical activities to machines. Our memories are in the ‘Cloud.’
