Business Wire "US Press Releases "
HOLMESVILLE, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Amish Naturals, Inc. (OTCBB: AMNT), a natural food products company specializing in organic pastas and snack foods, today announced the broadening of its distribution network to 100 Meijer supermarkets throughout Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Ohio. In the coming weeks, this pioneer of the modern supercenter concept will be rolling out Amish Naturals' organic line of fettuccini pastas in five varieties including Plain, Whole Wheat, Fiber-Rich, Garlic-Parsley and Tomato-Basil.
"We are thrilled to be working with a food retailer that ultimately changed the way America shops. The one-stop-shopping concept truly works for the busy American, and now we're happy to be a part of this company's culture by bringing the wholesomeness of Amish Naturals' pastas to consumers," said Troy Treangen, Executive Vice President/COO of Amish Naturals. "The receipt of this order supports our plans to aggressively grow the availability of our pasta line, the keystone of our company that is now supported by an extension of our product line into the snack food category."
Consistent with Amish Naturals' strategic plan to expand market share through major retail distribution partnerships, Jewel-Osco food stores, a SUPERVALU company, Amazon.com (NASDAQ: AMZN), the world's largest online retailer and grocery stores throughout the Midwest, including Buehler's, Bigg's, D&W Fresh Market and Woodman's, have all ordered the company's line of organic and all-natural pasta products.
All Amish Naturals' pastas are made with the very best ingredients and manufactured under the strictest Kosher and Organic regulations. Their careful sheeting and cutting method of pasta-making is reminiscent of an Italian grandmother hand rolling and cutting sheets of dough.
