"Fresh is always in season at Kroger, and as warm weather approaches, we know our customers are ready to enjoy lots of fruits and vegetables that are at peak seasonality," said Dan De La Rosa, Kroger's group vice president of fresh merchandising. "Customers can look forward to their seasonal favorites and—as always—unparalleled freshness this spring and throughout summer with limitless possibilities for delicious meals or enjoy with no prep and just a simple bite."
