Web Grocery Basket

Local Entrepreneurship: Web Grocery Basket (
Web Grocery Basket by Zoltán Rácz, Hungary

This Szeged-based company sells vegetables and fruit. Every Wednesday, the company buys healthy and fresh vegetables and fruit from the same local farmers, who are committed to organic and ecological farming. Then, on Thursday, they sort them into boxes or baskets, which they deliver to five surrounding towns and the capital. The customers can pick up their baskets (which they have ordered online) at one of the delivery points, which can be a school, a yoga club or a private house. The Waldorf School in Szeged was one of the first delivery points, when the company was started three years ago.

In Bruges, beer to flow underground

Bruges, Belgium (CNN)Under the streets of the medieval Belgian city of Bruges, a full two-mile pipeline is being built -- exclusively for beer.
The pipeline, which is expected to be completed this summer, will pump beer at a speed of 4,000 liters (about 1,057 gallons) an hour from De Halve Maan Brewery in the center of Brussels to its bottling plant outside the city. 
"I think we are the very first ones to do this ever in the world," says Xavier Vanneste, whose family has run the brewery for 160 years.
