This new partnership brings Niman Ranch’s Certified Humane products to retail locations in the Bahamas for the first time in the commonwealth’s history.
To celebrate, Niman Ranch and Solomon’s Fresh Market will be hosting a special Meat and Greet May 8-10.

“We are delighted to now offer Niman Ranch’s sustainably raised and delicious products to our customers,” Renea Bastian, VP Marketing & Communications for Solomon’s Fresh Markets, said. “Niman Ranch’s commitment to preserving our lands and water and raising livestock humanely and without hormones or antibiotics—ever—resonates with our company and discerning customers. We share these values and consider it our responsibility to make a positive impact in the communities where we live and serve,” Bastian continued.
