US: ShopRite expands Locally Grown program

ShopRite announces the expansion of its Locally Grown program, offering a variety of products throughout the supermarket – from farm-raised beef to seafood, flowers, fresh fruits and vegetables, baked goods, honey, craft beer and roasted coffees.
 
“ShopRite has been partnering with local farmers since our inception almost 70 years ago,” said Derrick Jenkins, vice president of the Produce and Floral Division at ShopRite. “But more than ever, we are meeting increased customer demand for locally sourced products by working hand-in-hand with local entrepreneurs, family farms and businesses to procure and sell products that have been locally grown.”



Many seasonal and unique products can also be found on a store-by-store basis. These “hyper-local” products are produced by local independent businesses and growers, with popular items such as locally roasted coffees, locally made pastries and breads, honey, small-batch sauces, and greens that have been grown on local hydroponic or indoor “vertical” farms.
 
“ShopRite is proud to work with local family farms and businesses because local is not only how we source our food, it’s who we are,” added Jenkins. “We look forward to offering shoppers an ever-increasing assortment of locally made products and goods throughout the year.”
