Target says Good & Gather’s appeal is in its wholesome approach, which eschews artificially pumped up, sweetened, and colored products. The move in that direction has proven to be a boon for the retailer, helping it to take in more than $1 billion in food-related sales in its first year.

“Food plays such an important role in our guests’ lives,” says Stephanie Lundquist, executive vice president, and president, Food & Beverage, Target. “And now, as guests are eating and cooking at home—and appreciating good value—more than ever, Good & Gather’s delicious, high-quality assortment and affordable price continues to set Target apart.”

What’s new to Good & Gather

When Target first launched Good & Gather, there were 650 items in the brand’s arsenal — mostly dairy, produce, pantry staples, and ready-made pasta. Over the course of the first year, Target started sprinkling in plant-based meats, yogurt, and even oat milk.

With the newest 600-item additions, consumers who favor whole and natural foods will find hummus, frozen zucchini spirals, meatless burgers, and other items holding true to the commitment of no artificial flavors, sweeteners, synthetic colors, or high fructose corn syrup.

Because of Good & Gather’s growth, Target is making it the store’s main private label grocery brand. That also means a sunsetting for two of its other brands, Archer Farms and Simply Balanced.
