Walmart adds prepared meals to stores”

Walmart announced Monday that it will roll out its meal kit service to as many as 2,000 stores nationwide this year, following an initial test in some of its stores.

The pre-portioned meal kits are available in four varieties: steak Dijon, basil garlic chicken, sweet chili chicken stir fry and pork Florentine. The retail giant also is re-outfitting a dozen Sam's Club stores into distribution centers for Walmart's online grocery business. The company said it was also selling rotisserie chicken meals in flavors like Thai curry chicken or chicken fried rice.

Walmart's meal kits serve two people and range in price from $8 to $15, the company said.

The one-step heat-and-eat meal kits come in 10 varieties: chicken alfredo, cheesy ravioli bake, meatloaf, spaghetti and meatballs, chicken Parmesan, pulled beef, chicken marsala, curry chicken, pot roast and chicken enchiladas.

Ken Shea, Bloomberg Intelligence's senior food and beverage analyst, said a growing number of USA food manufacturers and food retailers are pursuing the at-home food preparation market as well.

The company also is looking to ward off competitors on multiple fronts, including Amazon.com, German discounter Aldi and meal-kit purveyor Blue Apron Holdings.
