Camellia Brand is widening the distribution of three types of beans to Food Lion groceries this fall. A selection of the company’s non-GMO certified, 100 percent U.S.-farmed beans will arrive on shelves in more than 1,000 Food Lion stores at the end of November.
“The addition of our large lima beans, pintos beans and blackeye peas to Food Lion stores is part of Camellia’s ongoing effort to expand our versatile portfolio of products and bring quality goods to consumers across the United States,” said Vince Hayward, fourth-generation owner and CEO of Camellia Brand. “Because they’re rich in both nutrition and value, Camellia’s beans, peas and lentils appeal to chefs and home cooks alike.”
New Food Lion Locations
In addition to Camellia’s pinto beans, more than 1,000 Food Lion locations throughout the Southeastern United States will begin carrying large lima beans and black-eyed peas. Consumers in Delaware, Georgia, Kentucky, Maryland, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia will be able to purchase Camellia products at various Food Lion stores.
Established in New Orleans in 1923, Camellia distributes 19 varieties of premium dry beans, peas and lentils across much of the United States. In addition to Food Lion, other recent Camellia growth includes chainwide distribution at Tom Thumb, Albertsons, Winn-Dixie, H-E-B and Publix. Walmart locations across the South, Piggly Wiggly stores in Alabama and independent grocers have also helped strengthen the brand’s reach.
Premium Quality Beans
The popularity of New Orleans’ iconic red beans and rice has made Camellia’s red kidney bean the top-selling red bean in the country. Camellia Brand’s beans, peas and lentils are cleaned six times and rank above USDA grade in quality and freshness, no soaking necessary. The family-owned company is dedicated to bringing people together through hearty, economical meals created with their premium products.
