US retailer BJ’s Wholesale Club is rolling out a programme to offer locally grown produce at its stores.

“Farm to Club” will be available in all of the firm’s 195 clubs in all 15 states, the company said yesterday (10 April). 

The programme will see BJ’s stocking produce grown in-state and will be rolling out this spring and summer. “Farm to Club” produce includes a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, such as zucchini, tomatoes, corn, green peppers, yellow squash and cucumbers and will be marked with a special “Farm to Club, Locally Grown” seal, BJ’s added. 

“As a buyer at BJ’s, I strive to provide the very best produce for members,” BJ’s produce buyer Rob Johnson said. “The Farm to Club program is very good for both the members who buy the local fruits and veggies and the farmers who are growing our food.”
