ShopRite, a Wakefern Food Corp.-owned banner, says other highlights of Fresh to Table include combining the best of ShopRite’s ready-made meal expertise with foods and ingredients curated by ShopRite chefs and procured from departments across the store, such as meat, seafood, produce, bakery and more.
Fresh to Table also integrates technology like online ordering via ShopRite’s Order Express app to allow customers to order ahead of time for express pick-up, or for delivery via DoorDash.
“Fresh to Table offers a new way for customers to access fresh foods and take home easy-to-prepare meals,” said Melissa Bullard, whose family owns and operates the Philadelphia ShopRite on Aramingo Avenue. “The combination of wholesome, seasonal foods and wide variety of products helps customers find convenient and budget-friendly meal solutions for any occasion.”
