Extra, extra, read all about it! Walmart recently announced that they will start carrying Wild Oats organic food items and I’m here for it. For my family, this means that we’ll have access to better quality foods tailored to our budget. I am all for conscious eating and making the best food choices, but having a strict grocery budget doesn’t allow much room for organics and premium foods.
Wild Oats, a trusted provider of organic groceries since 1987, believes that quality shouldn’t come with a premium price. What does quality really mean? Well, Wild Oats adheres to USDA guidelines for organic certification, follows global food safety standards, and bans 125 unwanted ingredients from their food products. Goodness, that’s an overwhelming amount of ingredients we no longer have to worry about! The prices are not bad either!
Wild Oats will relaunch at Walmart starting this month, covering a broad variety of categories. Wild Oats Marketplace Organic™ includes everything from canned vegetables (15 oz) at $.88 to a full range of spices such as paprika, curry powder, and ground cinnamon (2 oz) starting at $2.48. Organic items represent nearly 90 percent of the Wild Oats offering. Wild Oats Marketplace™ includes products with simple and real ingredients such as ready-to-prepare skillet meals (5.8 oz) at $1.50. Wild Oats Marketplace Originals™ offers new and uniquely formulated items and will be available later this year.
“By partnering with Walmart, Wild Oats is starting a movement that makes it easier than ever for customers to access affordable organic and natural products,” said Tom Casey, CEO of Wild Oats. “Our availability at Walmart will allow us to finally pass along scalable savings directly to consumers. We are reinvigorating our brand by bringing great tasting Wild Oats products to more customers than ever before.”
I’m excited about Walmart’s partnership with Wild Oats. I’ve been feeling a little discouraged with our food options, so this is right on time. I can’t wait to try Wild Oats and add them to our grocery list. I’ll be reviewing a few of their products, so stay tuned for that. :-)
