Gallery: ‘Smarter’ Fresh & Easy debuts in Las Vegas

Fresh & Easy is getting “smarter” with a new-look store that made its debut in Las Vegas in late November as part of an effort by the chain’s new owners to reinvigorate the brand.

The stores, which feature totally new layouts and a new merchandise mix, are being touted in print, electronic and digital ads as a “smarter” store.  Eight of the 19 Las Vegas stores have already been upgraded, with the balance due to be remodeled by early January, the company said.

The 15,000-square-foot stores still utilize 10,000 square feet of selling space, but that space has been completely transformed, with lower shelving, more wood fixtures for a warmer look, more wall décor and a broader offering of healthy and natural foods, plus a wide selection of fresh offerings for in-store dining or takeout.

Fresh Origins debuts new brand packaging of microgreens

Fresh Origins, a greenhouse grower of microgreens and edible flowers for commercial and foodservice markets, has expanded its offerings with BrightFresh Microgreens for the retail market.

The new brand is the result of a trickledown effect created in the foodservice industry that has exposed consumers to microgreens in restaurants and has them clamoring for microgreens at retail.BrightFresh HighRes To meet this demand, Fresh Origins is debuting its Rainbow Mix and other varieties in a 1.75-ounce consumer package.

The new “BrightFresh” brand represents both the taste and environment that makes BrightFresh microgreens unique. Located near San Diego, Fresh Origins is perfectly situated in an ideal climate for producing high-quality microgreens. According to the company, this environment — with its intense natural sunlight — makes a significant difference in leaf size and stem thickness, and produces deep vibrant colors and more intense flavors, as well as longer shelf life that is unparalleled by other microgreens grown under artificial light and produced in less-than-ideal growing climates.

With almost 20 years of experience in microgreens production, Fresh Origins has a focus on quality, which has allowed it to innovate with an emphasis on sustainable growing practices and food safety.

“Making the leap to mainstream retail was an easy decision,” David Sasuga, president of Fresh Origins, said in a press release. “Chefs are important consumer influencers, but the popularity of food bloggers is bringing even more attention to palate-stimulating, visually interesting foods.

“We are thrilled to be able to finally offer this product to the everyday foodie, and we know that BrightFresh microgreens will have a clear place in the market,” he said.

BrightFresh Microgreens are currently available in a 1.75-ounce clamshell packed in a six-count or 12-count case.  All packages are date coded for freshness and offer up to a 20-day shelf life.
