So, when it comes to the most popular wholesale Mediterranean products in Denver,
what are we talking about?

Feta Cheese

Feta Cheese

Feta cheese is a classic Mediterranean dairy product that is often enjoyed on its own, in Greek salads, on bread, or mixed with zucchini. Depending on where the feta is sourced and produced, the cheese can be made from cow, sheep, or goat milk, or even a combination of the three. Regardless of the animal it comes from, this delicious cheese is a crowd favorite.

Baba Ganoush

Baba Ganoush

This Levantine dish is one of the most well-known Mediterranean dishes to eat in the United States. It typically comes in the form of a dip, served with pita or another kind of dipping bread. Commonly served before dinner as an appetizer of sorts, it usually features tahini, eggplant, garlic, spices, and sometimes yogurt. This tasty cuisine works great as a spread on a sandwich, or you can even eat it with a spoon, all on its own.

Baklava

Baklava

If you have never tried authentic baklava before, get ready to have your mind blown. This dessert is a traditional Mediterranean food that will have your taste buds craving more and more. Once you open a box of baklava from our Mediterranean grocery wholesaler in Denver, CO, you won’t want to stop eating! Baklava is made with layers of thin filo dough, which is layered together, filled with chopped nuts (think pistachios), and sealed with honey or syrup. Baklava is so good that its origins are debated, leaving many wondering which country invented the dessert. Everyone from the Turks to the Greeks and even Middle Easterners hold unique takes on baklava. Try each one to discover your favorite!

Most Popular Wholesale Middle Eastern Foods

Fresh, healthy, aromatic, rich: it’s no wonder that the popularity of Middle Eastern cuisine and products has skyrocketed in the United States. This genre of cuisine features a large variety of foods, from Halvah to Labneh. If there were one common theme throughout all Middle Eastern food, it would be the bright, vibrant herbs and spices that are used. These flavorings help create rich, complex flavors that foodies fawn over. Typically, Middle Eastern food is piled high for all to eat, with enough food for an entire republic to put down.

Tabbouleh

This refreshing, healthy dish is chock-full of greens, herbs, tomatoes, and bulgur (or cracked wheat), creating a memorable, bold flavor. This dish may be eaten on its own or paired with a shawarma sandwich or helping of falafel. It’s best to buy your ingredients in bulk to make this dish because it tastes best freshly made with family around to enjoy. Just be sure to bring a toothpick to the tabbouleh party – you’re almost certain to have some leafy greens stuck in your teeth after eating.

Shawarma

Shawarma

We mentioned shawarma above, and for good reason – this dish is enjoyed by men and women around the world, and of course, right here in the U.S. Except for falafel, this might be the most popular Middle Eastern food item in history. Shawarma is kind of like a Greek gyro, with slow-roasted meat stuffed in laffa with veggies and sauce. The blend of spices and the smoky meat mix together to create a tangy, meaty flavor that you will want to keep eating for hours. For western-style shawarma, try using beef or chicken. For a more traditional meal, try using lamb from our Middle Eastern grocery distributor in Denver, CO.

Hummus

Hummus

Traditionally used as a dip meant for fresh pita, hummus is a combo of chickpeas, garlic, and tahini, blended together until silky, smooth, and creamy. You can find hummus in just about any appetizer section of a Middle Eastern restaurant menu. That’s because it’s considered a staple of Middle Eastern food that can be enjoyed by itself, as a spread, or with fresh-baked pita bread. Hummus is also very healthy, making it a no-brainer purchase from our grocery store.

Benefits of Eating a Mediterranean Diet

If there’s one diet that is most well-known for its health benefits, it has got to be the Mediterranean diet. In 2019, U.S. News & World Report listed the Mediterranean diet as No. 1 on its best over diet list. This incredible diet has been cited to help with weight loss, brain health, heart health, diabetes prevention, and cancer prevention.

Whether you already love Mediterranean food or you’re looking to make some positive changes in your life, this “diet” is for you. Eating cuisine like Greek food, Persian food, Turkish food, and Italian food is healthy and tastes great. Even better than that? At Nazareth Wholesale Grocery, we have many staples of the Mediterranean diet for sale in bulk so that you can stock up on your favorites at the best prices around.

So, what exactly is the Mediterranean diet?

It is a way of eating that incorporates traditional Greek, Italian, and other Mediterranean cultures’ foods. These foods are often plant-based and make up the foundation of the diet, along with olive oil. Fish, seafood, dairy, and poultry are also included in moderation. Red meat and sweets are only eaten in moderation, not in abundance. Mediterranean food includes many forms of nuts, fruits, vegetables, fish, seeds, and more. Of course, you can find at them all at our wholesale Mediterranean grocery store!

Here are just a few of the many benefits of eating a healthy Mediterranean diet:

Reduced Risk of Heart Disease

Reduced Risk
of Heart Disease

Many studies have been conducted on this diet, many of which report that Mediterranean food is excellent for your heart. Some of the most promising evidence comes from a randomized clinical trial published in 2013. For about five years, researchers followed 7,000 men and women around the country of Spain. These people had type 2 diabetes or were at a high risk for cardiovascular disease. Participants in the study who ate an unrestricted Mediterranean diet with nuts and extra-virgin olive oil were shown to have a 30% lower risk of heart events.

Reduced Risk of Stroke for Women

Reduced Risk
of Stroke for Women

In addition to the heart-healthy benefits of a Mediterranean diet, studies have shown that eating healthy Mediterranean and Middle Eastern foods can reduce the chances of stroke in women. The study was conducted in the U.K., which included women between the ages of 40 and 77. Women who stuck to the Mediterranean diet showed a lower risk of having a stroke – especially women who were at high risk of having one.

Benefits of Eating a Mediterranean Diet

First and foremost, purchase your Mediterranean and Middle Eastern wholesale foods from Nazareth Grocery – we’re always updating our inventory! Getting started on this healthy, delicious diet is easy.

Try these tips:

Try these tips

1.

Instead of unhealthy sweets like candy and ice cream, try eating fresh fruit instead. It’s refreshing, tasty, and often packed with great vitamins and nutrients.

2.

Try eating fish twice a week, in lieu of red meat. Fish is much healthier and doesn’t have the unfortunate side effects of red meat, like inflammation.

3.

Try planning out your meals using beans, whole grains, and veggies. Don’t start with meats and sweets.

4.

They’re tasty, but try to avoid processed foods completely.

5.

Instead of using butter to flavor your food, use extra virgin olive oil instead. Olive oil contains healthy fats and tastes great too.

6.

Try to get more exercise and get out of the house. The Mediterranean lifestyle is an active one, best enjoyed in the beautiful sunshine when possible.

Why Buy Mediterranean and Middle Eastern Products Wholesale?

Buying wholesale and retail are quite different. When you buy products from a wholesaler, you’re essentially buying from the middleman between a retail establishment and the manufacturer. Wholesale purchases are almost always made in bulk. Because of that, buyers pay a discounted price. That’s great for normal buyers and great for business owners, who can sell those products to profit. This higher price is called the retail price, and it is what traditional customers pay when they enter a retail store.

King Soopers workers go on strike across Denver area

Thousands of grocery workers started walking the picket lines at King Soopers stores from Boulder to Parker early Wednesday morning, a day after the United Food and Commercial Workers Local 7 rejected the company’s latest contract offer.The strike is being called on claims of unfair labor practices and is expected to last three weeks.

Thousands of grocery workers started walking the picket lines at King Soopers stores from Boulder to Parker early Wednesday morning, a day after the United Food and Commercial Workers Local 7 rejected the company’s latest contract offer.

The strike is being called on claims of unfair labor practices and is expected to last three weeks. The union Tuesday rejected what King Soopers called its “last, best” offer that included $170 million for wage increases and health care benefits as well as bonuses ranging from $2,000 to $4,000 for ratification of the contract.

“Our original offer on the table was $148 million in wage increases. We raised that to $170 million this morning, which is the largest wage increase in the history of King Soopers and City Market,” Joe Kelley, president of King Soopers and City Market, said Tuesday.

Kroger owns King Soopers and City Market in Colorado.

Kelley said union negotiators haven’t been willing to bargain since they rejected an offer last week.

Kim Cordova, UFCW Local 7 president, said the union is willing to resume talks, but King Soopers hasn’t provided information it needs on wages, pensions, health care and other items to evaluate the proposal despite repeated requests for the data.

And King Soopers’ latest offer contained unacceptable provisions, Cordova added, including the addition of gig workers; restrictions on workers’ ability to work overtime; and shortening the time for workers who are on leave of absence or injured.

“Clearly, King Soopers/City Market will not voluntarily meet the needs of our workers, despite our repeated pleas for the Company to listen to the voices of our members,” Cordova said in a statement.

The union filed a federal lawsuit against King Soopers in late December, accusing the company of unfair labor practices. King Soopers filed a complaint with the National Labor Relations Board Tuesday accusing the union of the same thing.

The strike will affect the King Soopers stores where the union’s contracts expired Jan. 8. The stores are in the following cities: Denver, Arvada, Aurora, Boulder, Broomfield, Centennial, Commerce City, Edgewater, Englewood, Evergreen, Federal Heights, Glendale, Golden, Greenwood Village, Highlands Ranch, Lakewood, Littleton, Louisville, Thornton, Westminster and Wheat Ridge.

The union’s contracts with other King Soopers and City Market stores expire later in January and in February. The union is still negotiating with Albertsons, which owns Albertsons and Safeway stores in the state.

King Soopers has been advertising for temporary replacement workers, and the company announced Wednesday morning that its stores will remain open through the strike.

Cordova said union members from across the country are expected to come to Colorado to support the striking workers.

The last strike by grocery workers in Colorado was in 1996. Union members at King Soopers walked off the job and Safeway and Albertsons eventually locked out union members. The strike lasted 42 days.

King Soopers Strike Begins, Union Says Grocery Store Has ‘Unfair Labor Practices’

DENVER (CBS4) – Thousands of grocery store employees in the Denver area are on strike after negotiations between the union and King Soopers fell apart. The union says King Soopers and its parent company Kroger have “unfair labor practices.”

King Soopers made a final offer on Tuesday in a lengthy bargaining battle with the company calling it its best offer. It included an investment of $170 million over the next three years going towards wage increases and bonuses for existing employees and starting pay of $16. The union called it insulting, saying it only amounted to pennies more, and rejected it with a 95% vote. The union — United Food and Commercial Workers Local 7 — is demanding better safety precautions, higher wages and affordable health care for employees.

About 8,400 King Soopers employees at 78 stores started their strike at 5am after the union failed to reach a deal with the company.

They’re demanding better safety precautions, higher wages & affordable healthcare.

King Soopers called the decision to strike reckless and self-serving. President Joe Kelley said “Local 7 is putting politics before people and preventing us from putting more money into our associates’ pockets.

All King Soopers stores remain open during the strike.

UFCW’s strike impacts nearly 80 grocery stores in Colorado, including:

– Arvada (Sheridan Boulevard, Candelas Parkway, 64th Avenue, Wadsworth Boulevard, 58th Avenue) – Aurora (Colfax Avenue, Hampden Avenue, Havana Street, Buckley Road, Peoria Street, Smoky Hill Road, South Parker Road, 17000 Iliff Avenue, Mississippi Avenue) – Boulder (30th Street) – Boulder/Gunbarrel (Lookout Road) – Broomfield (Sheridan Boulevard, Highway 287, 136th Avenue) – Centennial (Arapahoe Road, University Boulevard, Holly Street) – Commerce City (62nd Avenue, 104th Avenue) – Denver (Colorado Boulevard, MLK Boulevard, 1950 Chestnut Place, Quebec Street, Green Valley Ranch Boulevard, Florida Avenue, 2727 Evans Avenue, Monaco Parkway, 9th Avenue, Hampden Avenue, Sheridan Boulevard, Krameria Street, Speer Boulevard) – Edgewater (Sheridan Boulevard) – Englewood (Englewood Parkway, University Boulevard, Federal Boulevard, Sheridan Boulevard) – Evergreen (Bergen Parkway) – Federal Heights (84th Avenue, 84th Avenue) – Glendale (Leetsdale Drive) – Golden (South Golden Road) – Greenwood Village (Holly Street, Yosemite Street) – Highlands Ranch (Quebec Street, 3000 Red Cedar Drive, University Boulevard, Wildcat Reserve Parkway) – Lakewood (Alameda Avenue, Alameda Parkway, 1555 Quail Street, Kipling Parkway, Wadsworth Boulevard) – Littleton (Wadsworth Boulevard, Littleton Boulevard, South Broadway, Belleview Avenue, 6760 Pierce Street, Ken Caryl Avenue) – Louisville (South Boulder Road) – Parker (Cottonwood Drive, Lincoln Avenue, South Parker Road) – Thornton (120th Avenue, 104th Avenue) – Westminster (Wadsworth Parkway, Federal Boulevard) – Wheat Ridge (Sheridan Boulevard, Youngfield Street)

About 8,400 unionized employees are now striking.

The union representing thousands of King Soopers and City Market grocery workers in metro Denver, Colorado Springs and other Front Range communities says it will strike next week against alleged unfair labor practices.

Workers at 88 stores will begin to strike starting at 5 a.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 12, according to a statement from United Food and Commercial Workers Local 7. The strike could last up to three weeks, the statement said.

Stores in the following locations would be impacted by a strike:

The official strike announcement comes after months of back-and-forth contract negotiations between the union and the supermarket chain’s parent company, Kroger. The union’s current contract expires Jan. 8.

UFCW Local 7 rejected the company’s latest offer on Wednesday after 17 hours of negotiations. The proposed contract included $148 million in wage investments and signing bonuses for workers, according to a statement from King Soopers.

“Local 7 is threatening disruption instead of focusing on what is best for our associates, their members,” said Joe Kelley, president of King Soopers and City Market. “We want what is best for our associates.”

The company also proposed additional health care benefits, according to the statement.

An agreement for a new contract had not been reached as of Friday. The union has threatened to strike during past negotiations, only to back off of plans closer to the strike date.

The company’s proposals so far include a host of unfair concessions, such as a multi-tiered wage system that results in lower pay for workers in smaller cities, according to Kim Cordova, the union’s president.

“This is a direct result of the company’s bad faith at the bargaining table,” Cordova said in a statement outlining the union’s strike plans. “Our plea remains the same: Stop these unfair labor practices, and respect us, protect us and pay us what we deserve.”

Union members voted overwhelmingly in favor of a strike earlier this week, after filing an unfair labor practices lawsuit against the company last week. The complaint alleges that King Soopers broke the union’s current contract by hiring temporary workers to fill store vacancies.

The hiring practices have disrupted negotiations for a new contract, according to Cordova. Workers are hoping to secure better pay, security and workplace safety policies after working through the pandemic, she said.

Kroger has denied any wrongdoing.

“King Soopers/City Market has followed the law and has NOT received any notice of wrongdoing from the National Labor Relations Board,” the company said in a statement. “King Soopers/City Market remains focused on the bargaining process and is committed to negotiating in good faith and settling a contract that is good for our associates while keeping groceries affordable for our customers.”

King Soopers and City Market stores outside of metro Denver and Colorado Springs are not officially included in the strike, according to the union, since their contracts don’t expire until later in the year.

Business expansions were announced in Denver, Westminster and Douglas County.

DENVER, CO — Three companies announced expansions in Denver's metro area over the past couple of months, and they are set to hire hundreds of new employees, state officials said.

Edge R&D, Elsmere Education and Genapsys are each expanding their operations in metro Denver.

The business intelligence, data management and technology solutions company is planning to set up a new location in Douglas County, state officials said. Edge R&D plans to create an additional 69 jobs over the next eight years.

"Edge R&D is excited about the opportunity to grow in the Colorado market," said CEO Ryan Williams.

"We are looking forward to becoming part of Colorado's technology community and hope to bring positive growth to its economy."

Colorado competed with Arizona and Washington for the newest Edge R&D location.

The company is looking at opening its new office in Castle Rock, Castle Pines or Lone Tree, but a location has not yet been announced.

Founded in Colorado, the educational technology company plans to add 138 new jobs in Denver, state officials said.

Justin McMorrow founded Elsmere Education in Denver after he grew up in Houston, so Colorado competed with Texas for the expansion.

"While Houston was tempting for personal reasons, we ultimately decided that Colorado offered the best opportunity for growth and access to the talent pool we will need," McMorrow said.

Elsmere Education partners with colleges and universities to research, develop, launch and market in-demand graduate programs.

The life science company is bringing around 240 new jobs to Westminster, state officials said.

Jason Myers, the company's CEO, said the Colorado expansion marks an "exciting milestone."

"The Denver market has emerged as a life sciences and biotech hub, offering an excellent opportunity for B2B collaboration. In addition, the local talent from universities, favorable taxes and incentives will allow us to quickly scale consumable manufacturing and increase our R&D efforts," Myers said.

Genapsys is focused on unlocking genomic information for academic and clinical research.

Colorado competed with California and Massachusetts for the new location. Genapsys applied for and received a Job Growth Incentive Tax Credit and a LONE Strategic Fund incentive for the creation of the new Colorado jobs, state officials said.
