At Albertsons Companies, we believe everyone should have the opportunity to go organic. That’s why we offer such a wide assortment of O Organics products, from fresh fruits and vegetables to wholesome dairy and meats, cage-free
certified eggs, cereals, snacks, baby food, and more. O Organics gives you access to an affordable and growing line of
organic food and is exclusively available at Albertsons Companies stores.
All O Organics products are USDA Certified organic, which means the products were grown in environmentally friendly ways that help to conserve biodiversity, promote ecological balance, and protect natural resources. This ensures that least 95% of the ingredients in each O Organics product are produced without the use of synthetic pesticides fertilizers, antibiotics, added growth hormones or Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) — providing you and your family with a complete line of wholesome and great tasting food.
When O Organics launched in 2005, we became one of the first major retailers to offer a wide selection of organic food. Today, the O Organics line features more than 1,500 products that are all USDA Certified organic and carry the USDA-certified organic seal. Albertsons Companies continues to lead the way and expand our product portfolio with diverse and affordable organic options.
As part of its commitment to the Sustainable Coffee Challenge, Albertsons Companies has pledged that by mid-2020, 100 percent of its O Organics® coffee will be certified sustainable according to the Fair Trade USA standard or an equivalant.
O Organics is proud to offer Fair Trade Certified coffee, which means the beans in our coffee bags and pods are grown responsibly. When you choose Fair Trade coffee, you’re not just helping protect the environment. You’re also ensuring that the hard-working farmers earn fair wages and work in safe conditions.
Here are some other ways Fair Trade certification benefits farmers and their communities:
- Farmers learn about sustainable farming methods and receive training to grow products that meet high standards
- Farmers and their families have access to education and healthcare. They also receive community development funds that allow them to invest in their futures
- Farmers receive higher pay for their organic crops
According to Paul Rice, President and CEO of Fair Trade USA, “Demand for ethical products is on the rise, and with the commitment of O Organics coffee bags to Fair Trade, consumers now have more opportunities to choose products that not only taste good, but also do good.”
Look for the Fair Trade Certified™ label while you shop. You’ll enjoy that cup of coffee even more knowing you’re helping farmers around the world.

Sometimes, it’s hard to find wholesome options for the foods your family members prefer. We have created a line of products to make eating delicious foods as easy for you as possible.
Open Nature™ is food as nature intended. This means no artificial colors or preservatives, no added trans-fat, and no hydrogenated oils. Open Nature meats come from animals raised without antibiotics or added hormones, and they are all vegetarian-fed. You don’t have to sacrifice flavor to eat more naturally.
Open Nature products include fresh chicken and beef, bread, yogurt, salad dressing, and frozen foods. We have continued to add a variety of new items, including frozen yogurt bars and eggs.
Many of the ingredients used in our Open Nature products are non-GMO. Learn more about Albertsons Companies’ position on GMOs.
Open Nature carries earth-friendlier home care and home cleaning products that are dye-free and never tested on animals. These products are as effective as leading national brands, but they are made with naturally derived and biodegradable ingredients whenever possible.
A number of Open Nature home cleaning products are approved by the EPA’s Design for the Environment (DfE) program as well as the newer Safer Choice program. The Safer Choice program promotes safer chemicals in products that are healthier for our communities and planet. In 2016 and 2017, Albertsons Companies won the EPA Safer Choice Partner of the Year award for our commitment to increasing awareness of products that are safer for people and the environment, and our ongoing efforts to participate in and promote the Safer Choice program. In addition to the EPA Safer Choice Program guidelines, we also have our own restricted substances list for our Open Nature products.
