Portland, OR (PressExposure) May 20, 2011 -- Living Harvest Foods, manufacturer of the world's leading Tempt Hempmilk, is pleased to announce Tempt will now be available in more than 800 Safeway stores across the country. Tempt Hempmilk is a great-tasting and nutritious non-dairy alternative that comes in five delicious flavors - Original, Vanilla, Chocolate, Unsweetened Original, and Unsweetened Vanilla. Safeway will carry Original and Vanilla.
Adding Safeway to the list puts Tempt Hempmilk in 3 of Supermarket News' top 5 retailers. Kroger was the early-adopter; they gave Tempt placement in 1,600 stores in mid-2008. The success of the sweetened flavors led them to add the unsweetened SKUs in 2010. Later in 2010 Living Harvest landed another retail giant, Supervalu, with placement in over 600 of their banner stores including Albertson's in Southern California, Jewel and Cub in the Midwest, and Farm Fresh in the East.
When asked about Safeway Cathy Hearn, Living Harvest's President said, "We've been talking to them for quite some time. Gaining placement in this great retail chain is a testament to the growing acceptance of hemp as a great source of nutrition; being the first and only hemp milk carried by Safeway is a testament to a great team that's worked hard to achieve and maintain our dominant position in the market."
Sustainable, non-GMO, and gluten-free, hemp seeds are packed with nutrients and are rapidly gaining popularity as one of the most valuable sources of quality plant-based protein. Hemp is a rich source of omega 3, all essential amino acids, vitamins, and minerals making it an ideal alternative for vegetarians and anyone with food allergies.
Founded in 2002, Living Harvest Foods is the dominant leader in hemp food products and an early pioneer in uncovering the protein potential locked within the industrial hemp seed. The Company is committed to improving the health and well-being of people and planet by offering great-tasting products made from this incredible seed. Their products include Tempt Hempmilk, Tempt Frozen Desserts (pints and bars), Tempt Organic Hemp Oil, and Tempt Protein Powders.
