Michigan-based SpartanNash said the U.S. Defense Commissary Agency extended its contract to provide private label products to all DeCA commissaries through Dec. 15, 2025.
“We are proud and grateful that DeCA has entrusted SpartanNash with a three-year contract extension as we work to strengthen our partnership in service of America’s military heroes and their families,” said David Sisk, SpartanNash chief customer officer. “SpartanNash’s mission is to deliver the ingredients for a better life, and our global supply chain network enables us to bring that taste of home to those who are serving our country away from theirs.”
SpartanNash’s military division, SpartanNash Military, distributes grocery products so commissaries and exchanges can deliver a familiar shopping experience to servicemen and women with their favorite American brands regardless of where they are stationed. Private label products that SpartanNash Military distributes span the categories: dairy, poultry, seafood, tabletop, health and beauty care, pet, baby, home goods, center store groceries, natural and organic.
DeCA private brands will continue to be delivered to all commissaries worldwide through both the SpartanNash Military distribution network and via SpartanNash’s West Coast partner Coastal Pacific Food Distributors.
DeCA initially selected SpartanNash as its DeCA private label supplier in December 2016. SpartanNash Military distributes products to 160 commissaries and 400 exchanges located in 39 states and the District of Columbia, Europe, Cuba, Puerto Rico, Honduras, Iraq, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, Djibouti, Korea and Japan.
In 2021, SpartanNash Military delivered more than 70,000 loads to domestic military families, 7,800 containers and 16 emergency airlifts to troops stationed overseas.
South Bend-based Martin’s Super Markets was acquired by SpartanNash in a deal announced in November 2018 and closed in January 2019.
In addition to Martin’s, SpartanNash operates a total of 145 supermarkets, under other brands including Family Fare, D&W Fresh Market, VG’s Grocery and Dan’s Supermarket. The company employs more than 19,000 people.
