Auchan Retail France has announced that it is testing a new ‘shop without staff’ concept – Auchan Minute – in its headquarters in France. It involves a vending machine which offers a wide range of organic food items for a healthy and balanced snacking.

As of now, Auchan Minute has not been introduced in public roads or public spaces, the retailer said in its statement. The idea behind the experiment is to identify new avenues in product presentation and merchandising. It will also help the retailer to test new payment methods.The service, which was launched in March of this year, is reserved for Auchan employees. The container is refilled manually on a daily basis, ESM reports.
