Bigg's supports local health-food company

Bigg's Hyper-market, a tri-state native company, is stepping up to support another Cincinnati based business, Bright Future Foods. Specializing in an "on-the-go snack" version of edamame called "Ma-Me!", Bright Future is hoping to claim it's stake in the booming health food market. Bright Future is not your typical health-food company. According to the Cincinnati Business Courier
Bright Future plans to donate 10 percent of its net profit to the Bright Future Adoption Foundation, which is dedicated to helping bring children and prospective parents together through adoption.

In addition, the company
awarded the production contract for the brand to a food manufacturing facility in Southeastern Ohio launched by The Appalachian Center for Economic Networks, of Athens, which is working to revitalize a depressed economy in that part of the state.

According to a Bigg's press release, "Following the introductory phase, we expect Ma-Me! will be offered in all 14 of our stores."

Anne Chambers, CEO of Bright Future Foods, explains that the company's dual mission is
to create healthier futures for people by introducing them to the health benefits of soy, and to call attention to adopting as a wonderful way to create a family.

Bright Future is hoping to follow the Biggs offering with a national roll-out.

It is nice to see socially responsible local business supporting each other and taking actions to revitalize the region.
