AB Acquisition Completes Renovation Of Culinary Kitchen-Technical Center In Dublin, California
The project, which was in development before the Albertsons-Safeway merger was announced, is located near the company's Pleasanton corporate campus. The facility has sophisticated capabilities in culinary development and food technology, with a special focus on fresh selections in our Service Deli, Meat, Seafood, Produce, and Bakery departments. In addition to its staff of 70 culinary specialists, the facility also contains equipment to replicate manufacturing plant, store and home kitchen environments.
"Our company is passionate about running really great stores, and key to that is providing our customers with the products they want, just as Joe Albertson did when he opened his first store 76 years ago," said Shane Sampson, Chief Marketing and Merchandising Officer. "As grocers, we love challenging our culinary team to come up with new Own Brands products that keep pace with the changing tastes and preferences of customers in every neighborhood we serve. Our Culinary Kitchens & Technical Center helps make that happen across all of our stores."
The Culinary Kitchens & Technical Center is a state-of-the-art facility that enables the company's stores like Albertsons, Safeway, Jewel-Osco, Vons and Carrs to provide customers with products developed to their tastes. AB Acquisition operates stores across 33 states and the District of Columbia under 18 well-known banners.
