Homeland is a supermarket chain in the United States. Homeland's headquarters is in Edmond, Oklahoma. As of 2016, it operates approximately 90 supermarkets in Oklahoma, Kansas and Texas. Most Homeland supermarkets also include a pharmacy.

History[edit]

The company used to be the Oklahoma division of Safeway, and it was spun off from Safeway in 1987.[1] The "Homeland" name was adopted in 1988.[2]

Homeland filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in September 2002, at which point it was bought by and became a subsidiary of Associated Wholesale Grocers. The supermarkets still operate under the "Homeland" name.

In June 2007, Homeland purchased seven stores from the Albertsons grocery chain.[3]

In January 2008, Homeland purchased the 26-store United Supermarkets of Oklahoma chain.[4]

On November 14, 2008, Homeland purchased five Williams Discount Food stores, formerly Albertsons. This purchase became official December 14, 2008.

In August 2011, Homeland purchased the three-store Super Save Food chain.[5]

Homeland was sold to its employees in December 2011.[6]

In September 2013, Homeland's parent company, HAC, Inc. bought 11 of the Belle Foods chain stores; most of those stores bearing the Piggly Wiggly name.

Protein[edit]

In addition to organic beef products, Homeland offers grass-fed beef products. Most grass-fed cattle are leaner than feedlot beef, lacking marbling, which lowers the fat content and caloric level of the meat. Meat from grass-fed cattle also has higher levels of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) and the omega-3 fatty acids ALA, EPA, and DHA.[7] Meat and dairy products from grass-fed animals can produce 300-500% more conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) than those of cattle fed the usual diet of 50% hay and silage, and 50% grain.[8]
