Efficiently navigating the dynamic supply chain can be a challenge without a powerful team in place, and having a distinguished distributor on your side can make all the difference. As it looks to fortify its presence in the retail market, Erewhon has tapped KeHe Distributors in a new distribution agreement to bolster its growth and expansion strategies.
“As a fellow B Corporation, we are proud to partner with a retailer that aligns with the same culture and values as KeHE,” said Michelle DuFresne, KeHE Vice President of Sales. “Erewhon is an exceptional merchant with extremely high standards, and we are thrilled to help support their growth plans as their primary supply chain partner.”
With a vast distribution network focused on natural, organic, specialty, and fresh products, KeHe is one of the largest certified B Corporations in the United States, a press release explained. The distributor currently serves over 30,000 retail outlets from a network of over 16 distribution centers across the North American region.
Erewhon shares in KeHE’s commitment to natural and fresh products, as the Los Angeles-based grocer’s primary goal is to provide great products and nutrient-rich foods to the communities it serves.
"Erewhon is excited to be partnering with a distribution company that can support our growth plans with the most experienced people in the industry,” said Chief Executive Officer of Erewhon, Tony Antoci. “We look forward to expanding with the help of KeHE’s supply chain expertise. This partnership will bolster our expansion plans and is an excellent cultural fit for Erewhon.”
Erewhon, an organic grocer and café, has played a key role in the organic food movement. Due to its recent growth, the company has expanded to six locations, with several more locations planned. This increasing momentum reflects the retailer’s commitment to customer service, quality, transparency, accountability, and bringing first-to-market offerings for food, beverage, and nutrition entrepreneurs.
