Why supply organic?
No category provides an easier and more proven opportunity to grow existing customer sales and attract new customers than organics. With an average growth of over 15 percent per year over the past 10 years, providing quality organics in the produce department will prove to be a good investment. By providing high demand organic produce, the produce department will become a "destination" shopping experience.
