The offering is available at ShopRite, Fairway Market, Gourmet Garage and The Fresh Grocer in six states.

The distributor and vertical farming company Square Roots entered a new agreement to add Square Roots' indoor farms on-site at select UNFI distribution centers.

Warren, Michigan-based Lipari, which sells refrigerated specialty items, was previously owned by private equity firm H.I.G. Capital.

Balian will oversee and help grow UNFI’s private-label and owned-brands division.

Horvath, who comes to the wholesaler from pharmaceutical wholesaler AmerisourceBergen Corporation, becomes chief supply chain transformation officer.

The food company, which is a retailer, wholesaler and distributor, sold the temperature-controlled production and distribution facilities to Provender Partners, which intends to lease them to other grocers.

Open to the public with no membership fees, the store features food for home and business.
