Kroger is attempting to transform itself to compete in a cutthroat grocery industry that’s being turned on its head by Amazon. The largest supermarket chain in the U.S.—with $121.2 billion in revenue—was late to the e-commerce game, but is now making up for lost time. In the last year, Kroger acquired meal kit company Home Chef, increased its stake in U.K.-based online grocery company Ocado, and partnered with an autonomous vehicle startup to work on driverless delivery. The 136-year-old grocer is also shaking things up in the brick and mortar realm, pedaling its goods in Walgreens and selling off its convenience store chain for $2.15 billion.
