Ahold Delhaize USA
2021 Progress Report
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.
Ahold Delhaize USA and its local brands – Food Lion, Giant Food, The GIANT Company, Hannaford and Stop & Shop – are proud to enter the second year of working with Partnership for a Healthier America (PHA). Our companies’ PHA commitment reinforces our commitment to serving connected customers’ busy lives in motion, including their health and nutrition needs, and the overall health of the local communities where are brands have been good neighbors for decades, providing a wide variety of nourishing foods at affordable prices. We know that healthy foods lead to healthy communities by reducing the risk of chronic diseases and contributing to a community’s overall resilience and vitality. Each of our omnichannel brands meet customers personal needs and provides healthier food choices in stores and online, so customers can meet all their goals. The brands continue to add healthier products to their assortments and keep reformulating own-brand products to reduce salt, sugar and fat and increase vitamins, whole grains and fiber. Ahold Delhaize USA brands are helping customers find these healthier choices through an industry-leading nutrition guidance program called Guiding Stars, the world’s first, and longest-serving program of its kind. This trusted guide also enables Ahold Delhaize USA companies to set targets for sales of products meeting the science-based standards for nutritional quality. Ahold Delhaize USA companies are the only food retailers in the U.S. setting sales targets for products meeting a nutrition standard. As our brands continue to strive to meet PHA commitment targets, we will further our dedication to supporting health and sustainability among customers, associates and the local communities we serve.
