business news in context, analysis with attitude

Raley’s has opened a new format - dubbed Market 5-ONE-5 - in the historic R Street District in downtown Sacramento, saying that it is “founded on the principle that discovering quality, nutritious food should be easy, accessible and affordable. Every item in the store was hand-selected based on three core values: Organic, Nutrition and Education (ONE).”

The store, the company says, “was developed specifically to meet the needs of people who are overwhelmed trying to decipher food labels and translate ingredient lists. In fact, it goes to great lengths to stock the shelves with items that meet the highest standards of health and nutrition set according to the Market 5-ONE-5 brand promise. This includes minimally processed, organic and sustainably sourced products that are free of unrecognizable ingredients not found in nature.”

Raley’s Michael Teel says that “Market 5-ONE-5, and what it stands for, has been a vision of ours for a long time. Its purpose is to offer our community access to fresh, nutritious and affordable food. Its mission is to help people live healthy, vital lives by taking the guesswork out of understanding nutrition.”
