Fresh & Easy Expands “Better for You” Private Brands

El Segundo, California based Tesco subsidiary Fresh & Easy is expanding its affordable and better-for-you  Private Brands Fresh & Easy Eatwell and Fresh & Easy Goodness with more than 60 new products.

Goodness products are made with wholesome, natural ingredients that are good sources of vitamins and minerals, including whole grains, fruits and vegetables, and have limited sodium, limited added sugars and no preservatives. Like all other Fresh & Easy products, both eatwell and Goodness items contain no artificial colors or flavors, no high-fructose corn syrup and no added trans fats.
