SIMPLE INGREDIENTS. CLEAN LABELS. JUST GOOD FOOD.
Consumers today are demanding products with simple and clean ingredient labels, and at US Foods® we are committed to helping our operators meet those expectations.
Through our Unpronounceables List™ initiative, we have cleaned up our ingredient profiles – creating new US Foods Exclusive Brand products and reformulating others by avoiding, removing or replacing certain ingredients such as artificial flavors and artificial (FD&C) colors, hydrogenated oils, high-fructose corn syrup and MSG. In fact, none of the dozens of ingredients on our Unpronounceables List will be found on the product ingredient labels from our four best-quality brands**.
Our full Metro Deli®, Rykoff Sexton®, Chef’s Line® and Stock Yards®* product portfolios - more than 1,000 items - will be produced with clean-label profiles, without any ingredients found on the Unpronounceables List**. So that what’s left is simply good food.
*Does not include product marketed and sold by third party licensees.
**Processing aids and potential cross-contact during production are not in scope for this program.
