Grand Rapids, Michigan-based SpartanNash says the U.S. Defense Commissary Agency has extended its contract to provide private label products to all DeCA commissaries through Dec. 15, 2025.
“We are proud and grateful that DeCA has entrusted SpartanNash with a three-year contract extension as we work to strengthen our partnership in service of America’s military heroes and their families,” said David Sisk, SpartanNash chief customer officer. “SpartanNash’s mission is to deliver the ingredients for a better life, and our global supply chain network enables us to bring that taste of home to those who are serving our country away from theirs.”
SpartanNash’s military division distributes grocery products so commissaries and exchanges can deliver a familiar shopping experience to servicemen and women with their favorite U.S. brands. Private label products that SpartanNash Military distributes span the categories: dairy, poultry, seafood, tabletop, health and beauty care, pet, baby, home goods, center store groceries, natural and organic.
DeCA private brands will continue to be delivered to all commissaries worldwide through its military distribution network and via its West Coast partner, Coastal Pacific Food Distributors.
DeCA initially selected SpartanNash as its DeCA private label supplier in December 2016. SpartanNash Military distributes products to 160 commissaries and 400 exchanges located in 39 states and the District of Columbia, Europe, Cuba, Puerto Rico, Honduras, Iraq, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, Djibouti, Korea and Japan.
Its distribution centers are strategically located among the largest concentration of military bases in the areas the company serves and near Atlantic ports.
In 2021, SpartanNash Military delivered more than 70,000 loads to domestic military families, 7,800 containers and 16 emergency airlifts to troops stationed overseas.
SpartanNash’s core businesses include distributing grocery products to a diverse group of independent and chain retailers, its corporate-owned retail stores and U.S. military commissaries and exchanges; as well as operating a premier fresh produce distribution network and the Our Family brand.
The company owns 145 supermarkets – primarily under the banners of Family Fare, Martin’s Super Markets and D&W Fresh Market – and shares its operational insights to drive solutions for its food retail customers.
