Heinen’s Sees Food Prescriptions as the Future of Customer Loyalty
The grocery retailer “plans to roll out an app that develops personalized diet plans to help treat specific conditions.

It will tailor selections to customers’ preferred cuisine, like Italian or vegetarian, factor out any ingredient dislikes and intolerances, and even integrate a doctor’s prescription into the system. For customers that don’t have a diagnosed condition and just want to eat better, Believe Fx will develop plans built around health goals.”
