Kroger Health Partners With FoodNiche To Drive Conversation On Healthier Future of Food
Kroger Health, the health division of Kroger – America’s largest grocer with 2,800 stores nationwide, is joining forces with Foodniche Inc, to promote thought-provoking conversations on a healthier food future. Now in its third year, FoodNiche’s annual events create opportunities for food industry stakeholders to connect and engage in dialogue on changing consumer trends and emerging technology shaping the future of food production and consumption.
The strong alignment between Kroger Health’s mission and FoodNiche objectives makes this an ideal partnership. According to Colleen Lindholz, Kroger Health President, “we believe in food as medicine. And our focus at Kroger Health is built around that belief. Our healthcare organization encompasses nearly 3000 pharmacies and more than 200 clinics nationwide, but we are working toward a future where people need fewer prescriptions and instead, are making healthier food choices to prevent illness before it starts. Our team of 22,000 healthcare practitioners – from pharmacists and nurse practitioners, dietitians and technicians – is working hard every day to help people live healthier lives. All of us realize this is a pivotal time for both the healthcare and food industries, and we know we can’t drive change alone. FoodNiche’s mission of bringing together the decision makers in the different areas of the food industry to shape a healthier future of food fits perfectly with our approach. We are happy to partner with them on this mission.”
“We are excited at the opportunity to partner with like-minded organizations such as Kroger Health”, said Julia Olayanju, Ph.D, FoodNiche founder “At Foodniche, we envision a future where people can conveniently and affordably put nourishing meals on the table daily. We understand and appreciate the importance of food to overall well-being. Creating a healthier food future is the collective responsibility of all food industry players and we are focused on fostering collaboration among all stakeholders to achieve this noble objective.”
