We know that the grocery industry is fast-paced and competitive so being able to mentor and watch these brands grow and achieve success excites us.”
RxSugar®, a KeHE elevate™ participating brand, has expanded to more than 15,000 stores while within the emerging brands program, including Albertsons, Meijer, Price Chopper, and Sprouts.
