Consumers shopping Target ‘s grocery aisles are seeing a new line of organic and natural products.
Target rolled out the “Simply Balanced” brand earlier this month. So far, the line includes more than a dozen items, such as drinks, granola and baked chips, but Target said in a news release that it plans to include 250 products by the end of the year. The products will range from snacks and pasta to frozen seafood, dairy and cereal. Some of the products, such as spaghetti, fusilli, rice crackers and tortilla chips, are gluten free.
The brand claims to be free of artificial flavors, colors, sweeteners, preservatives, high fructose corn syrup and hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils. About 40 percent of the line is organic, Target said.
More than 75 percent of the line is free of genetically modified organisms, and Target said it hopes to eliminate all GMO ingredients from the Simply Balanced line by the end of next year.
The Simply Balanced brand is replacing two subsets of Archer Farms brands: Archer Farms Simply Balanced and Archer Farms Organic. Some of the products from those lines will be carried over into the Simply Balanced line.
In addition to Archer Farms, Target also offers two other private labels for food, Market Pantry and Sutton Dodge, a line of meats.
Target has been ramping up its grocery offerings in the past few years as it seeks to be a one stop shop for customers.
The Roanoke Target had carried dry goods and some frozen and refrigerated goods before last year’s remodel. The remodel relocated the electronics department to the back of the store and created a grocery area in the empty space.
