Dozens of Kentucky family farms and small business will benefit from a historic partnership between Kentucky Proud and Kroger according to Agriculture Commissioner James Comer. During press conferences at Kroger locations in Lexington and Louisville, Comer noted the significance of the relationship, “Kroger will sell 125 products from 34 Kentucky Proud producers in 88 stores throughout Kentucky.” The initial purchase filled a 10,000-square-foot warehouse and totaled $350,000, a record for a single transaction in the history of Kentucky Proud. Comer also used the occasion to introduce Kentucky Proud popcorn, a premium product made from corn grown by western Kentucky farm families, and process by Preferred Popcorn
