Boulder, CO (PRWEB) March 04, 2014
Hope Foods, parent company of Hope Hummus, Hope Dips, Hope Spreads, and Hope Crafted, is happy to announce its increased product distribution in new regions and new grocery chains across the US. The Boulder, CO based company’s products will be available in many new cities for the first time ever.
North Atlantic Region
HOPE Foods has been expanding its distribution into the North Atlantic Region rapidly due in part to its use of innovative technology that utilizes pressure rather than heat or chemicals to preserve freshness. With High Pressure Processing (HPP), a product made from the freshest organic ingredients can be suspended at its peak point of freshness. Hope Foods is ecstatic to be able to offer their products at their freshest point to consumers nationwide.
HOPE Foods president, Robbie Rech testifies to the benefits of high pressure processing: “The evasiveness of sustained freshness has plagued the natural foods industry. With HPP we are able to use ingredients that are fleetingly fresh, such as avocado, fresh red peppers, kale, and cilantro and still access these ingredients’ unique flavor and nutritional profiles for long enough to get them across the country, onto a grocery store shelf, and into someone’s home, all while maintaining that same level of freshness available to consumers close to us.”
In New York City and surrounding areas, HOPE is launching into Fairway Markets its top 5 hummus flavors, including its newest, and recent tradeshow favorite, Sriracha Hummus. Additionally, Hope Crafted, a gluten-free specialty cracker available in four flavors, will be released into Fairway Markets. This grocery chain prides itself as “being the being the first to carry or import something new and delicious,” and Hope Foods certainly fits into that category.
HOPE continues its expansion into the Baltimore/ Washington D.C. area and Philadelphia. “We are very pleased at the array of stores in these areas that have been open and excited about our products. We look forward to growing our relationships in this region and becoming a solid staple in the natural foods markets in the Northeast. I think we have something to offer consumers that they haven't had available to them before in this area,” says Alek Ramoska, VP of Sales.
Hope Foods products are now available in new stores including Festival Foods. In Detroit, HOPE is growing quickly with Better Health and Plum Markets with its Hope Hummus, Hope Dips and Hope Crafted Crackers. Additionally, Hope Lentil Dips are launching nationally with the NCGA Co-ops and INFRA stores. the National Co-op Grocers Association (NCGA) is a business services cooperative for retail food co-ops located throughout the United States representing 136 food co-ops operating nearly 180 stores in 37 states. NCGA helps unify natural food co-ops in order to optimize operational and marketing resources, strengthen purchasing power, and ultimately offer more value to natural food co-op owners and shoppers everywhere. Hope Foods products will be available in 80 food co-ops throughout the United States through the company’s partnership with NCGA.
HOPE Foods products have become available through Whole Foods Markets in the Southeastern region of the U.S. Southerners can now enjoy Hope Lentil Dips, which will be on special in the month of March in many Whole Foods Markets in the South. “These latest additions mark the continued growth of our longstanding relationship with Whole Foods, and as always, we are pleased to be able to represent the natural foods market at Whole Foods,” says Robbie Rech, president.
Consumers will be able to find a store near them that carries HOPE Foods products through the company’s new website, which will launch next month.
