Rice Epicurean Markets Launches Nutrition Advice Column


Rice Epicurean Markets is introducing a weekly nutrition advice column that will appear in the Houston-based retailer’s weekly circular ads and on the company’s website beginning March 21.

The articles are being produced as part of an affiliation with nutritionist Catherine Kruppa and her company, Advice For Eating.

“People are more health-conscious and more confused than ever,” said Gary Friedlander, Rice Epicurean president. “Rice Epicurean Markets is a very health-conscious supermarket and our goal is to promote consumer health while grocery shopping.”

The column aims to teach consumers quick and easy ways to prepare healthy meals. Additionally, the column aspires to influence the overall well-being of Houstonians by helping them make smarter choices when navigating the grocery aisles.

Kruppa, who earned her bachelor of science in nutritional sciences and a master of science in nutrition from Texas A&M University, is a registered, licensed dietitian, a certified wellness coach and the director of nutrition for the U.S. diving team. Board certified in sports nutrition, she specializes in weight management, diabetes, eating disorders, heart disease and pediatric nutrition.

“Customers regularly have specific questions about dietary restrictions or product ingredients, and we think that this relationship with Catherine will assist them with understanding labels and planning meals,” said Phil Cohen, VP of marketing for Rice Epicurean Markets.

Founded in 1937, Rice Epicurean Markets is the oldest family-owned supermarket chain in Houston. Its five locations are merchandised to reflect their particular neighborhood and feature high-quality gourmet products and personalized service.
