KeHE Distributors, a company that provides Natural & Organic and Specialty products to natural food stores, chain grocery stores, independent grocery stores and other specialty product retailers, opened its new state-of-the-art 270,000-square-foot distribution center in Aurora, Colorado.

The new hub joins KeHE's network of 17 distribution centers that provide natural, organic and specialty products to natural food stores, grocery stores and other specialty retailers throughout North America, company officials said.

"Our new site demonstrates our commitment to serving a geographically diverse customer base and employing innovative practices and sustainability measures that enhance our operations," said Brandon Barnholt, President/CEO, KeHE. "It's another exciting step in our journey as a Certified B Corp and as a trusted supplier to our customers."

According to company officials, with LEED Gold certification the facility employs energy-efficient practices throughout its operations, from water heaters and HVAC to sky lights and lighting controls. The new site also features LED lighting, recycled packaging material, and software devices to monitor electric usage. Nearly 80,000 square feet of freezer and cooler space accommodates an increasing range of fresh perimeter products and market demand.
