Baltimore, MD (April, 2017) — B’more Organic, makers of organic Icelandic-style yogurt protein smoothies, announces distribution expansion into three retailers along the East Coast. The Baltimore-based company has secured placement in select Ingles’ Market, Weis Market and Top’s Friendly Markets. United Natural Food, Inc. (UNFI) and Southern Cross Trading Co. support the growth and distribution.
Already available in major retailers Kroger, Publix, Whole Foods Mid-Atlantic and Wegmans covering 44 states, B’more Organic vastly expanded its reach in conventional grocery stores, adding over 300 total stores in the beginning of 2017. That puts its total to more than 3,000 total doors and available online.
“Five years ago, we couldn’t have imagined skipping past the natural channel and going heavy into conventional grocery,” said co-founder Andrew Buerger. “We’re glad that all retailers are understanding the urgent need to add organic, no-added sugar options for their customers.”
Buerger attributes their continued expansion to be ahead of important health trends – convenient grass-fed protein, probiotics and no added sugar.
“This is another wonderful step toward helping all Americans get convenient healthy food, hopefully taking a bite out of disease,” he said.
As health-related concerns, such as obesity and diabetes, continue to increase in North America and Europe, industry research firm Mintel confirms that consumers are turning to dairy products for its established, well-known health properties, like protein. In fact, 39% of consumers say a high-protein claim is very important on a food label, believing that more protein intake is essential for a healthy diet. Providing the timeless nutrition of dairy protein in a delicious beverage, B’more Organic offers protein-rich creamy, organic skyr smoothies to health-conscious Americans.
