Private Label the Safeway

- Private Label - Safeway Inc.
With stores across the country under the Safeway, Vons, Dominick’s, Randalls, Carr-Gottstein and Genuardi’s banners, Safeway Inc. has created quite a presence. Safeway’s hearty lineup of private label across its stores has created a national presence for many of the private label lines, and this year, the company celebrates 100 years of its Lucerne dairy brand. Whether it’s a new Safeway Select Great Escapes super-premium ice cream flavor or a Select Primo Taglio cheese, the Pleasanton, Calif.-based supermarket giant is into dairy sales and manufacturing in a big way and continues to give private label the support it needs to grow.
