The company which was started in 1883 by Barney Kroger when he invested life saving of $372 at Pearl Street in downtown Cincinnati names one of its raw and clean food divisions as Pure Food Inc. The company whose original motto is “Be particular. Never sell anything you would not want yourself” has over the years served the customers with quality products emerging to be a strong retail force for a period of more than one- and- quarter centuries. With close to 2,800 stores spanning through 35 states in the United States, Kroger currently ranks among the largest retailers in the world. News of change of name had appeared earlier in the year but it was not certain whether the company was changing its brand name.
