Mom’s Organic Market selected KeHE Distributors as its supplier for all-natural, organic and specialty products. The multiyear contract covers all 19 Mom’s locations in Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Washington, D.C.
“We are dedicated to serving our customers and operating in a highly sustainable manner that protects and restores the environment. In KeHE, we have found a Certified B Corp partner that shares our values and has adopted verifiable commitments to serve its stakeholder groups [and] the less fortunate and to protect the environment,” said Scott Nash, Mom’s founder and CEO.
The new agreement replaces a former supply deal the retailer had with United Natural Foods Inc.
Food preferences in the U.S. continue to transform rapidly. “Mom’s success is rooted in bringing the latest and best natural, organic and fresh products to market for our customers," said Lisa de Lima, VP of grocery for Mom’s. "KeHE’s partnership is absolutely critical in this effort.”
KeHE said it would service the business through its distribution center in North East, Md.
“Mom’s is one of a handful of natural food merchants that ‘set the standard’ for excellence and authenticity in organic grocery retailing. Our companies share common values, a passion for healthy food and a commitment to sustainable practices. We are honored Mom’s has chosen KeHE as their primary distribution partner,” said KeHE Chief Operating Officer Gene Carter.
