MILWAUKEE — Angelic Bakehouse is set to expand its line of sprouted grain products with the announcement it has reached agreement with the four Ahold USA divisions (Giant Carlisle, Giant Landover, Stop & Shop New England, and Stop & Shop New York Metro), as well as D’Agostino and DeCicco Family Markets. In all, Angelic Bakehouse said an additional 265 northeastern retail outlets now will carry its products.
Angelic’s Flatzza and Flatzza Buddy, the first packaged sprouted grain pizza crust, are now available at 128 locations under the Ahold USA umbrella, including 63 Stop & Shop locations, 27 Giant Landover locations and 38 Giant Carlisle locations. Ahold operates supermarkets in 10 states — Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
“The Ahold USA stores are a natural fit for Angelic Bakehouse,” said Jenny Marino, president and chief executive officer of Angelic Bakehouse. “They’ve reshaped the food industry. We’re doing the same for bread. Consumers don’t want to trade taste for nutrition any longer. Our sprouted grain, G.M.O.-free products solve that problem.”
Angelic also will begin offering its sprouted seven-grain bread at 113 Giant Carlisle, and its reduced sodium sprouted seven-grain bread will be available in 80 stores.Angelic’s products also are now available in two high-end retailers in the New York City area, a total of 24 new store locations. The Flatzza is available in 14 D’Agostino locations in New York City. In addition, 10 DeCicco’s stores in Westchester county are carrying Angelic’s bread, buns and flatbreads.
