Cincinnati, Ohio based mega-grocer Kroger has introduced a new line of more than 20 Private Brand salads with the launch of Fresh Selections by Kroger Salads! The leafy greens are thoroughly washed and packed in special packages including: bags, clam shells, single serve salads and salad kits all to maximize freshness.
Fresh Selections by Kroger is designed to provide customers the perfect side for all their favorite meals, or the option to make the salad the main event by piling on fresh veggies, cheeses and proteins.
The brand has also built in its core a food safety and confidence program called Quality You Can Trace with HarvestMark. The program allows customers to access online information about the salad they purchased, such as harvest,packing information and safety status.
