Egglife Foods Announces Incredible Distribution Growth with Albertsons Companies
The Company’s Debut Product, egglife® Wraps, is Available at Over 2,000 Retail Locations
CHICAGO, Ill. (January 7, 2021)- Egglife Foods, the innovative food company that uses cage-free eggs instead of flour to reimagine carb-heavy foods, announces exceptional distribution growth with Albertsons Companies, one of the largest food retailers in the United States.
Right out of the gate, Albertsons Companies partnered with Egglife Foods for Chicagoland distribution with Jewel-Osco. And just last month, Egglife Foods announced new partnerships with Safeway® Mid-Atlantic and Safeway® Portland, along with Shaw’s® and Star Market® in the North East. In addition, Egglife Foods is currently in distribution conversations with additional retailers under their umbrella. This partnership with Albertsons Companies brings Egglife Foods’ total location count to over 2,000 across all retail partners.
“Albertsons Companies was our first large retail partner,” says Egglife Foods Chief Sales Officer, Ross Lipari. “We first landed distribution with Jewel-Osco in our home city of Chicago, and we have continued to reach new markets through our continued partnership. Albertsons Companies is known for being locally great and nationally strong, a motto we believe in wholeheartedly at Egglife Foods,” Lipari continues. “And it is one we hope to mirror as we continue to grow and expand as a brand.”
“We were immediately drawn to Egglife Foods’ innovative egglife wraps at their launch in 2019,” says Albertsons Companies Grocery Assistant Sales Manager, Octavio Ruvalcaba. “Their brand potential and the need for a healthy alternative in the category was apparent early on, and we have seen the consumer demand continue to grow. Albertsons Companies is committed to helping people across the country live better lives, and affordable, clean label products like egglife wraps, help us deliver on our mission.”
Egglife Foods has been taking the health and wellness industry by storm since their launch in October of last year. Committed to harnessing the transformative power of eggs to reimagine traditionally carbohydrate and calorie laden foods, the company has developed a line of simple, delicious, fresh foods that are high in protein, but free of sugar, fat, and gluten. Their signature egglife® egg white wraps, made by utilizing a patented method for transforming egg whites into a tortilla-style wrap, provide an alternative to flour wraps for consumers looking for low-carb, high protein alternatives to traditional tortillas.
To meet the growing demand, Egglife recently completed a 32,000 square foot expansion to its manufacturing facility in Wolcott, Indiana and commissioned its first commercial production line that can produce 200 wraps per minute.
egglife egg white wraps contain less than 30 calories, less than or equal to one gram of carbohydrates or fewer and five grams of protein each, and are gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free and soy-free. The wraps are available in four flavors – Original, Italian style, Rye style and Southwest style.
