The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which consumer goods editor and analyst Austin Smith and industrials editor and analyst Isaac Pino discuss topics across the investing world.

In today's edition, Austin discusses Kroger, one of his favorite grocery chains. In a market where many investors want to right the organic wave with Whole Foods (NYSE: WFM), or play SUPERVALU (NYSE: SVU) as a turnaround story, the Kroger Company just keeps ticking along with their model of operational excellence. They're a disciplined company that should keep clipping along nicely for years to come.
