HEALTHIER CHOICES Healthy food leads to healthy communities

Healthy food leads to healthy communities by reducing the risk of chronic diseases and contributing to a community’s overall resilience and vitality. Our customers look to us for fresh, healthy inspiration for delicious, nutritious family meals, every day. Our brands work to help make customers and associates more aware of what they eat and how it impacts their health. They inspire customers and provide healthier food in stores and online. They continue to add healthier products to their assortments and keep reformulating own-brand products to reduce salt, sugar and fat and increase vitamins, whole grains and fiber.

Targets used to measure our performance

  • By 2025, own brand healthy food sales should be above 55%
