is this the fu­ture of food shop­ping?

The Daily Telegraph - Telegraph Magazine - - THE CUT -

Food-trends fore­caster Dr Mor­gaine Gaye pre­dicts that in the fu­ture, con­sumers will be buying ‘sur­vival boxes’, sim­i­lar to ra­tion packs, con­tain­ing es­sen­tial food tai­lored to their ge­netic make-up. ‘There will be a de­vice like a mo­bile phone, which knows your ge­netic pro­file and your mi­cro­biome (micro­organ­isms that in­habit your body),’ she says. ‘You will breathe into the de­vice ev­ery day and it will tell you what you’re de­fi­cient in and how to get it. You’ll then scan the de­vice around the su­per­mar­ket and it will beep at all the food con­tain­ing nu­tri­ents that you need that day.’
