Berkshire Natural and Belmont Pharmacy introduce locally grown products for pharmacies
Berkshire Natural, a healthy snack and beverage company serving all of New England, announces a new partnership with Belmont Pharmacy, a local neighborhood pharmacy in Belmont, MA. Belmont Pharmacy is now featuring an area of their store displayed with products vetted and sourced by Berkshire Natural to ensure the highest nutrition standards. This partnership will further Berkshire Natural’s goal to make local healthy delicious snacks available and convenient to consumers around New England.
“At Belmont Pharmacy, we believe in staying local whenever possible to better serve the needs of the neighborhood and surrounding community,” says Bob Pavlan, Pharmacy Manager. “We are extremely pleased to be working with Berkshire Natural. Our partnership fits right into our vision for the store: a local company just like ours with the healthiest and most wholesome products for our customers.”
Belmont Pharmacy, which focuses on customer wellness will now feature a dedicated retail space for Berkshire Natural-approved and supplied products including snacks and drinks. Consumers can quickly access a variety of healthy products including local and organic products without spending time weeding through the labels and nutritional values on each package, since all of the foods have been sourced specifically by Berkshire Natural. This means that each product on display has no trans fats, no high-fructose corn syrup, no artificial flavors, no artificial colors and are locally sourced whenever possible.
“At Berkshire Natural, we promote foods that are local and healthy…and getting them out for consumers to enjoy. So, when given the opportunity to work with a small business neighborhood pharmacy, we knew it was a great fit with our brand,” says Berkshire Natural Co-Founder David Starr. “Labels and marketing promises can be misleading. Our customers can feel confident that our products have cleared our nutritional standards. Many of our products come from Massachusetts and other parts of New England. We only sell products that come from outside of New England when we can’t find them manufactured our grown here. Most people in Massachusetts aren’t aware of the rich palette of foods available that are made here in our state.”
Berkshire Natural supplied products that can be on display at Belmont Pharmacy include: Green Mountain Yogurt (Brattleboro, VT), Cabot Cheese (Cabot, VT), Cedars Hummus & Tzatziki (Haverhill, MA), Polar Seltzer (Worcester, MA), Cape Cod 40% Reduced Fat Potato Chips (Hyannis, MA), Steaz Organic Green Tea, Stringles Organic Mozzarella Cheese, Eden Organic Pumpkin Seeds, Peeled Organic Dried Mango and more.
