ST. LOUIS, MO - Grocery retailers have the opportunity to differentiate themselves as high-quality fresh produce providers, which is exactly what Schnuck Markets has done with its latest launch. The retailer is partnering with logistics platform Foodshed.io to roll out the new Fresh Produce Now program at select Schnucks stores in the St. Louis, Missouri, metropolitan area.

Mike Tipton, Vice President of Produce and Floral, Schnuck Markets“Schnucks takes great pride in supporting our local farmers and communities,” Mike Tipton, Schnucks Vice President of Produce and Floral, expressed. “Our collaboration with FoodShed.io enhances our commitment to delivering the freshest produce to our valued customers. The new feature in our Schnucks Rewards mobile app reinforces our ‘Fresh Produce Now’ initiative.”

The program will provide timely alerts through the Schnucks Rewards app when a fresh, locally grown produce item arrives at their selected store. These notifications will also include details about the source of the harvest and, whenever possible, its harvest time.

Beyond the positive impact on farmers, locally sourced produce guarantees unmatched flavor and freshness while reducing transportation distances in the supply chain. Foodshed.io’s initiatives have strengthened local supply chains, providing greater opportunities for partners such as Schnucks, a press release stated.
