    I wonder though... I recently started using InstaCart after a shoulder injury. Through the app, you can easily view hundreds of products. I wonder if things like InstaCart become more main stream, could grocery stores then change the way they showcase food to make it better for these companies and less expensive...?

    How do we know you haven't taken fees for taking generic ice cream as an example for your video?

    There's also psychology of this. The "eye-level" shelves are more expensive than those at the very top or bottom because they are the first one to be seen by buyers.

    hate to break this to vox, you don't need grocery stores to sell icecream, just need a refrigerated warehouse, a website, amazon, and refrigerated delivery trucks that delivers locally, then expand out as your profits grows for as long as you can deliver it properly

    It is a controversial issue, no doubt, but perhaps there's some compromise? For example, supermarkets have a section devoted to new products, on the deal they get a cut if one of the new products does really well?

    I work in the FMCG industry in India, and this happens even here. Even in corner stores, premium shelf-space is sold for a price.
