Essential Everyday™ Brand To Expand
SUPERVALU® (NYSE: SVU) today announced that it is expanding its Essential Everyday™ brand to 2,700 of the most shopped-for products across more than 100 categories throughout the grocery store by 2013. The brand, which was introduced in select categories last year, offers consumers great quality food at a great value. Essential Everyday products are available at approximately 3,300 stores nationwide, including SUPERVALU’s family of stores—Acme® Markets, Albertsons® Stores, Cub® Foods, Farm Fresh® Supermarkets, Jewel-Osco® Stores, Shaw’s/Star Market™, Shop ‘n Save® Stores, and Shoppers Food & Pharmacy®— as well as at independent retailers served by the company’s traditional food distribution business.
“We’ve been very pleased with customers’ initial response to Essential Everyday. Consumers continue to look for products that exceed their expectations in the areas of affordable value. Our Essential Everyday brand does just that,” said Sam Mayberry, SUPERVALU vice president of private brands. “In addition to providing high-quality products at a great value, we’re focused on building customer loyalty for Essential Everyday and our other private brands by continuously innovating and bringing fresh ideas to our brand lineups.”
Essential Everyday is ideal for today’s busy families, according to chef, cookbook author and parent Antonia Lofaso, who introduced the expanded Essential Everyday brand lineup today on behalf of SUPERVALU in New York City. “As a working mom, I know firsthand the challenges of juggling work and home life, and how hard it is to find the time to make a nutritious, home-cooked meal that your kids will actually like,” Lofaso said. “In my new book, ‘The Busy Mom’s Cookbook,’ coming out in August, I include some simple tips for getting organized as well as a list of must- have pantry essentials. With the wide variety of Essential Everyday offerings, there’s so much you can do to prepare a quick, easy, nutritious meal that your whole family is sure to enjoy.”
