Top stories in retail news and the business headlines that interest us today.

Amazon One

Amazon Logo

“Amazon One is a biometric checkout device that scans palm prints to authorize payments, enable access to physical spaces, or provide access to transit, among other things. It works much like a fingerprint reader on smartphones, except the device is larger, stationary and installed at the point of sale or entrance.”

Uncle Ben’s New Name

“The Uncle Ben’s rice brand is getting a new name: Ben’s Original.

Parent firm Mars Inc. unveiled the change Wednesday for the 70-year-old brand, the latest company to drop a logo criticized as a racial stereotype. Packaging with the new name will hit stores next year.”

Topo Chico Hard Seltzer

“To bring its Topo Chico Hard Seltzer to the United States next year, Coca-Cola is partnering with Molson Coors Beverage.

The launch of the hard seltzer will be Coke’s first foray into alcoholic beverages in its home market for the first time since it sold its Wine Spectrum business in 1983. The Miller Lite brewer, on the other hand, already counts two hard seltzer brands in its portfolio, including Coors Seltzer. Molson Coors has been trying to move beyond beer as consumption has fallen and even dropped “Brewing” from its name at the start of the year.
