Target to partner with MIT on city farming, other food science projects

The retailer will work with MIT on various food science projects, including urban farming, as it looks to improve its grocery offering.

Target TGT 2.18% is increasingly turning to geeks to improve its stores.

Last month, the retailer said it would team up with Techstars, a leading technology startup accelerator, for a program next year that will provide funding and mentoring to small up-and-coming companies focused on retail technology.

Now, Target is collaborating with technologists to help it improve its game in another high-stakes area: its multi-billion dollar food business.
