Doorganics, Michigan’s only organic grocery delivery company, is making it easier to receive the freshest food possible from local and organic farms with the launch of a mobile app. The app will provide customers with an entirely mobile experience for optimum convenience and accessibility.
“We are excited to make it even easier for our customers to stock up on local and organic groceries each week,” said Mike Hughes, Founder of Doorganics. “The grocery and food delivery industry is ever changing, and we know that our customers have been looking for added conveniences. We’re confident that the app makes the Doorganics experience even better, allowing our customers more time around the table eating real food.”
Doorganics deliveries start with a customizable produce box full of organic and local fruits and vegetables. Customers can then shop from more than 150 different Michigan-made grocery items including farm eggs, pastured meats, fresh baked breads, cheeses as well as organic deli salads and prepared meals. Delivery is free, and customers have full control of their delivery schedule inside an online member portal.
“Not only do we support local farmers with each delivery, we also strive to support the communities we are lucky to serve,” said Hughes. “All leftovers and food service quality extras are donated each week to help feed the hungry. To celebrate our app launch, we are pledging to do more. For each app download through the end of May, we’ll be donating one additional pound of organic food.
For each app download, Doorganics will be donating one pound of food to Gleaners Community Food Bank in Detroit and God’s Kitchen in Grand Rapids. Doorganics regularly partners with these organizations by donating remaining produce and grocery items to fight food insecurity, the state of being without reliable access to a sufficient quantity of affordable, nutritious food.
Doorganics recently expanded its delivery area to 85 zip codes in southeast Michigan in December and plans to open a second facility in the Detroit metropolitan area in the coming year. The company makes weekly deliveries to customers in metro Detroit, Grand Rapids, Holland, Grand Haven, and Ann Arbor, Michigan.
Fruit Bliss is excited to announce the expansion of its organic dried fruit line to include soft and juicy rehydrated Tart Cherries.
“After the success of our current line of organic dried fruit, we are excited to add Tart Cherries to the list,” said Susan Leone, Founder and Owner of Fruit Bliss. “Our Tart Cherries are great for a healthy snack right out of the bag, or for an extra flavor zing in any recipe or smoothie.”
Fruit Bliss Tart Cherries are picked at the height of ripeness and sun-dried, and then undergo a rehydrating process that leaves them juicier and softer than traditional dried fruit. Like all of Fruit Bliss’ products, these Tart Cherries are organic, non-GMO verified, gluten free and contain no preservatives. They will be available in 4 ounce re-sealable pouches on Amazon and in markets around the country.
“Compared with other dried fruits, ours are soft and juicy, with no added sulfites,” said Leone, a Brooklyn mom who decided to start Fruit Bliss to fill the gap in 100 percent healthy snacks on the supermarket shelves. “Fruit Bliss really is dried fruit reinvented and a truly healthy snack or addition to many dishes.”
Meijer’s new Meal Inspirations draw on the culinary skill of creating a classic mirepoix, defined as a flavorful mixture of diced vegetables and seasonings. Plus, Meal Inspiration kits are designed to inspire at-home chefs to create their own unique recipes.
Each of the four new Meal Inspiration kits offers three recipes included on the peel-away label. The recipes call for minimal additional ingredients and each recipe is ready in under 40 minutes with no chopping of vegetables.
Meijer also introduced four new vegetable kits called “Roasters” that are perfect for roasting. Each kit has cooking instructions and all ingredients are included to prepare. The customer simply needs to add olive oil and roast.
