Because most of our team is based in California, we don’t often get to see the products we name for East Coast retailers when we shop. So while at a Martin’s supermarket in Virginia yesterday, I’ll admit to a flush of pride at seeing Nature’s Promise prominently displayed in nearly every aisle.
Catchword developed the name for Ahold (parent company of Martin’s, Giant, Stop & Shop, Food Lion, and others) for its private label line of more than 800 natural and organic products ranging from produce to peanut butter to paper towels.
Rolled out more than 15 years ago, the line is stronger than ever, particularly as more and more shoppers think about what’s really in the grocery, health and beauty, and household items in their carts. In 2016, the company introduced its “Free From” sublabel for products that aren’t organic but are free from artificial ingredients and harsh chemicals. Earlier this year, the company added a line especially for children: Nature’s Promise Kids.
Like most of you, I do my best to make healthful choices for my family—and I do love seeing Catchword names in print—so I expect I’ll be back at Martin’s soon. The pasta looks promising…
