Cynara Brings Artichoke Line to Dierbergs Markets

Specialty Food Association

Cynara USA, Inc., a brand featuring premium-quality artichoke products, is expanding its customer base to Dierbergs Markets, where its Artichoke Chyps and Ready-to-Eat Artichoke Delights will be available at 25 stores across the greater St. Louis metropolitan area and in Western Illinois.

"Over four generations, Dierbergs has been committed to sourcing high-quality ingredients. As they have continued to evolve and innovate, they've successfully made healthy options more accessible in their communities," said Nina Kalandadze, general manager of Cynara USA, in a statement. "We are proud to be a part of their journey." 

Cynara grows, produces, innovates with, and distributes artichokes year round, it says. Artichoke Delights are fresh-packed hearts presented in a sustainable and ready-to-eat tray that is BPA-free, microwavable, and shelf-stable. They’re naturally gluten-free, keto friendly, vegan, non-GMO verified, and contain zero trans fats.

Artichoke Chyps are the first artichokes in the form of a chip prepared with all-natural ingredients for a hearty crunch. Hand-picked artichokes are flash-fried in high oleic sunflower oil and dashed with a touch of salt. They are rich in vitamins, keto friendly, gluten-free, non-GMO, high in fiber, and 100 percent plant based.

In addition to Dierbergs Markets, Cynara's products are sold via ecommerce platforms like Thrive Market, Amazon, and Instacart, and off the shelves at Albertsons and Safeway locations in the Southwest.
