Calorie conscious consumers in Ohio today lamented the continual arrival of the yet to be named Brownies to Buehler’s Fresh Foods Bakeries.  Available in a variety of delectable flavors and each weighing approximately 1/3 pound, reverberations from the collective craving could be felt throughout areas around Buehler’s Fresh Foods 14 stores in Ohio.

“In a short time these brownies have developed a strong following.  We are proud to bring this luscious, mouthwatering treat, offered in four varieties,  to Ohioans living near Buehler’s stores.  Customers are telling us they love the new brownie so much that we decided to get their help in naming them.” said Bob Buehler, EVP of Marketing & Merchandising for Buehler’s.  The winner of the contest will receive a brownie per week for a year in the form of an electronic voucher tied to their Buehler’s Advantage Card.  Official rules at www.buehlers.com/contest_rules/

Three ways to enter the “Name the Brownie” contest at Buehler’s:

  1. Facebook:  http://woobox.com/ufwnnw
  2. Twitter:  @buehlersgrocery; use #buehlersbrownie
  3. In-store:  at the Bakery counter

These mouthwatering brownies are made from a closely guarded recipe and were originally created in the 1980’s by the local, family-owned and operated, Dorothy Lane Markets in Dayton, Ohio. “As a family-owned business ourselves, we are thrilled to be able to work with Buehler’s on bringing the these brownies to Buehler’s stores” said Norman Mayne, CEO of Dorothy Lane Markets, “I am sure that chocolate lovers throughout the area have reason to rejoice today”.

For Buehler’s Fresh Foods, the brownie story is one of local, Ohio, family-owned businesses working together to offer their customers one of the finest treats on the globe.

Buehler’s Brownies can be purchased individually and are available in multiple, mouthwatering, luscious varieties:

  • The Orignal Brownie: Multiple layers of chocolate brownie; rich, gooey caramel; and chopped pecans
  • Not-A-Nutter Brownie: No nuts in this version of the original, but extra chocolate chips are added
  • Peanut Butter Brownie: The original with peanut butter and peanuts added
  • Salted Caramel Brownie:  Our original brownie with a generous layer of coarse sea salt sprinkled into the rich, buttery caramel. The perfect blend of sweet and salty!

WOOSTER, Ohio – June, 2013

Becky Foster, Vice President of Construction and Maintenance for E&H Family Group, the umbrella company for Buehler’s Fresh Foods, has been chosen as one of the top women in grocery based on her efforts and contributions with the GreenChill Partnership. GreenChill Partnership is a program to monitor and reduce leakage of refrigerants into the atmosphere. Becky’s efforts with the GreenChill Partnership and other grocers across the United States resulted in improved industry standards on refrigerants. She also received an award from the GreenChill Partnership for her efforts to make Buehler’s one of the most improved grocers in 2012.

Now in its seventh year, PG’s Top Women in Grocery awards program recognizes the integral role women play across all areas of the dynamic retail food industry. As in years’ past, winning candidates were chosen from all levels of the industry within the retailer and supplier communities in three sectors – Senior-Level Executives, Rising Stars and Store Managers – and collectively represent female movers and shakers within the retail food industry who have demonstrated outstanding leadership and influence in their companies, as well as in the industry at large.

“…our editorial staff has never ceased to be amazed at the level of dedication, talent, expertise and sheer determination demonstrated by our finalists,” notes Meg Major, PG’s Editorial Director.

Major said one of the main reasons for the increases in both the quality and number of eligible applicants has been the continuing proliferation of women throughout the grocery industry, who continue to excel, not only in traditionally female niches as store managers and marketing positions, but also into nontraditional roles previously held only by men – construction, information technology, transportation and warehouse facilities management.

All Top Women in Grocery winners will be recognized in PG’s June 2013 issue, and will also be honored at a gala awards celebration that will take place in late 2013.

As the voice of the retail food industry for 91 years, Progressive Grocer serves the largest audience in the retail food channel, including top management at supermarket headquarters and top decision-makers at store level. From chain supermarkets to independent supermarkets, supercenters, wholesalers and food brokers, PG’s national readership relies on the publication and website for its authoritative, relevant, research-based editorial coverage, news and analysis. Progressive Grocer is owned by Stagnito Media, based in Deerfield, Ill. For more information, visit www.progressivegrocer.com

Buehler’s Fresh Foods announced today that the Dole Fresh Foods recall of bags of Seven Lettuces salads that has been discussed in the media over the last few days were not sold in any of their stores.

Dole Food Co.’s fresh vegetables division is recalling 756 cases of bagged salad, because they could be contaminated with salmonella.

The bags of Seven Lettuces salads were distributed in Alabama, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia and Wisconsin.

The company said the bags are being recalled, because a random sample tested by the State of New York came back positive for Salmonella. No other Dole salads are included in the recall.

The recalled salads are stamped with a use-by date of April 11, 2012, UPC code 71430 01057 and product codes 0577N089112A and 0577N089112B, the company said.

The product code and use-by date are located in the upper right-hand corner of the package, while the UPC code is on the back of the package, below the barcode.

Dole said that it’s coordinating with regulatory officials and that no illnesses have been reported.

Consumers should throw out the recalled salads. Dole said it’s also contacting retailers to make sure the bags in question are not available for sale.

The most common symptoms of salmonella are diarrhea, abdominal cramps and fever within eight to 72 hours of eating the contaminated food. The illness can be severe or even life-threatening for infants, older people, pregnant women and people with weakened immune systems.
