Kroger celebrates 10th anniversary of its Simple Truth brand
Kroger is celebrating that its more than $3 billion Simple Truth brand is marking its 10th anniversary of offering customers affordable and unique foods made with simple ingredients.
"A decade ago, Simple Truth was born when we identified that our customers wanted a simpler way to shop for Free From and Organic products," said Juan De Paoli, vice president of Our Brands. "The mission we started with 10 years ago remains our promise today – to offer delicious foods that are free from 101 artificial ingredients our customers do not want in their products at an accessible price. During the past 10 years, Simple Truth stayed true to that commitment, making it a customer favorite and America's number one organic and free from Brand. We are so proud of all we have achieved together and even more excited about what is ahead for Simple Truth."
