Ahold Delhaize USA
Ahold Delhaize USA, a division of Netherlands-based Ahold Delhaize, is the parent company for Ahold Delhaize’s U.S. companies, including its local brands, Food Lion, Giant Food, The GIANT Company, Hannaford and Stop & Shop, as well as Retail Business Services, a U.S. support services company providing services to the brands, and Peapod Digital Labs, its eCommerce engine. Ahold Delhaize USA’s commitment to PHA is part of the grocery retail group’s efforts to create a better world by ensuring a healthier, sustainable, transparent food supply chain.
Through this commitment, Ahold Delhaize USA has made the following goals:
By June 2025, at least 54% of private brand food sales (private brand products and unbranded bulk items) across all Ahold Delhaize USA brands will achieve one, two, or three stars through the Guiding Stars program. Guiding Stars helps consumers choose foods with the most nutritional value through a patented algorithm that analyzes and translates nutrition information to a rating system that is easy to understand.
Beginning in 2020 and on an annual basis, Ahold Delhaize USA will publicly disclose the percentage of total store food sales generated from all products, both private and national brand, that achieve one, two, or three stars through the Guiding Stars program, creating greater transparency around healthier food sales.
