Automated grocery technology getting boost in pandemic

Elroy Mariano

The major boom of online grocery ordering shows no signs of slowing down. More than six months into the COVID-19 pandemic, industry experts say the new convenience of ordering groceries through an app is here to stay.

“In fact, it’s been a huge acceleration. All of our clients that we serve, and we serve some of the biggest supermarkets in North America and the world, they picked up three times the volume that they were doing before this pandemic. And, in fact, more of them didn’t picked up more volume because they couldn’t just fulfill enough orders at a time,” said Max Pedro, the co-founder and president of Takeoff Technologies.

Takeoff Technologies creates automated grocery fulfillment software for some of the biggest grocery chains in the country, including Albertsons, Safeway and Shoprite. The technology requires supermarkets to build a 10,000-square-foot warehouse directly behind their store.

Canada’s speed skaters point to NHL bubble success in search for new training hub

Elroy Mariano

Ever the realist, Heather McLean flew home to Canada from the Netherlands in early March and quarantined herself for 14 days, even though it was not yet a requirement to do so.

After witnessing the spikes of COVID-19 first-hand in Europe, McLean realized the gravity of the situation and accepted she might not race again until the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing.

So, while she wants to compete this year – perhaps in the “hub” that the International Skating Union is exploring in the Netherlands —  the Winnipeg product is ready to roll with the unexpected.

Such is life in the midst of a global pandemic.

“I trust the ISU and our federation in Canada will take all the safety precautions and make the best decisions for us,” says McLean, one of this country’s top sprinters. “So, if they do decide to go through with it, I’m definitely all for

We live difficult times, there’s no doubt about it, and in the last six months or so, each and every one of us just had to adapt to a completely different lifestyle that changed pretty much everything we do.

Including our relationship with cars, that is, as for some reason, face masks have become the new car air freshener because way too many drivers believe just hanging them to the mirror is okay.

As a side note, it really isn’t, especially because face masks should be stored in safe places where they can’t be exposed to any kinds of contaminants or even worse, where they can spread any potential virus that’s already attached to its filters.

More specifically, this is a case
